3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Pour was medium golden with a nice white frothy head. Aroma was strong with citrus, fruit, pineapple, and hop bitterness. This aroma was one of the best I have ever smelled. Though it was a bitter, the flavor was quite hoppy, but real well balanced with smooth bitterness and some light malt characters. This was a fine brew.

In short: citrusy pale ale.
Pours quite clear deep gold with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Citrusy, herbal and malty aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is herbal, citrusy, intended american profiled, but still a lot of distinctive british character. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a medium, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, other citruses, subtle lychee, grass, and delicate resin. Taste is hoppy bitter with hints of sour citruses. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long at best but certainly makes up for it with its nice balance and the lack of all-too-common astringency. Overall a nice beer like any Oakham but nothing unusual.
