Scopey (10683) - 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.

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

imdownthepub (12170) - 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.
