Cask. Grapefruit rind embedded in caramel malt. Pours amber with white top and strong if broken lace wash. Taste is rich and smooth with the density of hops giving it an aged quality. Sweet foretaste with a bitter twist. Very good if hardly a typical IPA.

Towey1989 (1665) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee apple, some spicy orange, slight dark fruits, a little pine and subtle grassy hops. Taste of caramel, toffee apple, orange zest, some dark fruits, slight resin, a little grapefruit and subtle grassy, floral hops. Full bodied but a sticky texture. A sweetish, stewed toffee apple and citrus finish. A boozy cask IPA. Full bodied, citrusy and packed full of US hops. Wasn’t sure at first though because it also contains a lot of caramel and stewed, toffee apple flavours. Decent overall.

Garrold (4020) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Cask. Pivni, York. Clear, dark gold. Dense, creamy white head. Nose has sweet, sugary malts. Pungent, grassy, floral hop. Some notes of baked apple, and dried fruit. Taste is sweet, then grassy bitter. Full body. A bit sticky. Chewy, bittersweet finish. Hard work.

Scopey (12010) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Cask at The George, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a bubbly beige head. The nose is fresh, juicy, fragrant, orange squash, peach, honeysuckle, lychee, pine and a touch of varnish. The taste is pretty bitter, pine, resinous, grapefruit, blood orange, tangerine, peach, perfumed, light toffee and some chewy malt backbone with a lingering dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty juicy stuff. Enjoyable, albeit not Oakhams best.

teorn88 (6047) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
cask at CBC SMA, London. It pours a clean golden color with no head. Aroma is sweet toffee and vanilla with light orange peel and caramel. Taste is sweet and boozy, with toffee, alcohol fusels, vanilla. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, worst Oakham ever for me

Aroma: bread and grain malts, light caramel, some dark fruits. Appearance: clear, dark gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: exotic fruits, zesty, citrus fruits, some floral hops, lightly dry and bitter in the finish. Overall: very nice IPA, fantastic palate. Pint at Cat & Canary, Canary Wharf.

imdownthepub (12928) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Wellington, Birmingham. Gold to amber with white head. There is a rich maltiness to this initially, sharp and just a hint metallic. The hops kick through, reasonably floral and resinous, grapefruit zestiness. Another very decent beer from Oakham.

jamestulloch (3300) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Clear amber body with a dense white cap. Excellent lacing. Aroma of plum, blackcurrant and caramel. Flavour of blood orange, tea and a tangy, hoppy finish. Big bitterness. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation prickle. Rich and hoppy. Nice.

gegwilson (3042) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Found alive and well on Gravity at the Nottingham Robin Hood Beer Festival. Amber with a thin off white head. Mild hoppy aroma. The taste is pine hop over plenty of caramel. Fruity with some tea on there too. Nice.
