3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent head and good lacing. Flavours of stone fruits - peach, apricot and nectarine. A good citrus background with a little grass and mild grain. Sweetness and bitterness in very good balance here, leaving a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very nice indeed, this would make an excellent session beer.

At hop in York, lacking hoppiness for an oakham ale. Ok, but green devil and cites are better.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Really quite good. Will try again as drunk in a hurry. Nice taste and appearance. Good strength. Yes on second sample excellent. Usually like darker beers but well balanced. Nice citrus flavours.

Cask at JDW, Streatham Hill. Pours a pale gold hay colour with a white head. Floral, pleasantly zesty sherbet lemon aroma. Light body, light carbonation. Lemon candy, pine, grass, doughy white bread, light tangerine, orange zest... Tasty.

Cask@Blue Stoops,Chesterfield. In a maket swamped with pale ales this offering is head and shoulders above most of the competition. Beautifully balanced with flavour and just the right amount of bitterness. As a general rule,I prefer darker beers but make no mistake,this is a fine ale.

Not as good as the citra or JHB still a good beer. I fear it may have been a bit flat in the pub I had it in

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Brewery Tap, Peterborough. Clear light gold with a decent white head. Aroma of gooseberry, grain and a tiny bit of funk. It taste extremely good: a bitter hoppy hit with more bitterness at the back of the throat. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Thin palette. A great beer, but then I’m having it in optimum condition.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Staggs Bar. Clear golden body with a dense white head. Thick lacing that completely coats the glass. Aroma of soap, grapefruit and orange. Flavour of citrus fruit and straw - wonderfully balanced and incredibly drinkable. Medium body with an oily texture. Flat carbonation. A lovely beer, much better on cask than in bottle (so much so that I’m going to gave to revisit the bottled version, which I only rated as 2.7).
