Cask Conditioned handpump OGs Wellingborough. A golden beer with a white head. A fairly restrained citrussy beer. A bit of lemon sharpness in the nose. A bit wheaty lemoy in the mouth with some pineapple fizz. A bit thin but still tasty enough.7

Fin (9682) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Cask, gravity from Bacchanalia, Cambridge to take away 27-03-10 consumed an hour or two later at campsite, Cabbage Moors, Cambridge Pours gold and really sparkling in this early spring evening, there is a lovely white head, another great looker.taste is initially a touch sweet but its got a laziness about it which is something you could never normally say about an Oakham beer. Not that crisp, in fact its soft rather than zesty, hops show but not in the usual Oakham way, you know this is fine but Oakham don’t usually do fine they’re normally bloody good, maybe it was a tad past its best?

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2010 Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Gold with a white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some nettle. Sweet malty taste attractively overlaid by a tang of grapefruit and a mid bitter finish. Full taste, rounded and absorbing. Enjoyable. Served at just the right temperature; in recent months I have noticed a tendency for ’Spoons beers to be a bit warm. 29.11.10 Cask, same location. Same aroma and taste. Some bitterness. Thought it was a bit dull this time. Rating:6,3,6,4,11:3.0

leaparsons (9942) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2010
Cask, Loughborough Fest 10. Light clear gold with a small head. Aromas are toast and hay with some blackberry. Some citrus notes. Flavours are sweet grapefruit with blackberry and strawberry. Quite zesty in its fruitiness. Toast malts with resinous hops and a grapefruit bitter finish. Dry on the aftertaste. Good.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2010
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Golden, with a feint rosey hue. Juicy and squelching English hops to kick off, getting slushier across the tongue and parting with a grassy malt kiss. Not bold enough to live with Oakham’s best, but a nice golden ale certainly.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
Cask, Leicester 2010. Brilliant orange-gold under a persistent heap of suds. Spanking festival condition, orange cordial+pineapple jelly aroma. Winegums for breakfast, pineapple jelly for lunch, cashews for dessert. Which isn’t to say it’s not sodden with juicy hop and full-on bitterness. BOTFSF.
