Cask at Cloisters. Reddish copper, thin head. Nice soft redcurrant, juicy orange peel, pineapple, liquorice, touch of paprika. Absolutely masses of fruit, strawberry, liquorice, massively juicy. Soft bittersweet finish and the paprika spice just comes back to tickle the tongue. A tiny bit sweet, but still superb.

Sometimes a beer is this strong and it goes down smoothly. This was very tasty, but hard work. The alcohol overpowered the flavours. Not bad, just not brilliant. Oakham’s Atilla does this sort of strengh much better in my opinion.

tommann (2702) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Pours dark amber with a thin head. Aroma is faint mango with a touch of apple. Taste has loads of mango with a strong mango, bitter finish. Lacks Oakhams usual finesse.

suprchunk (2173) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Dark toffee color. Big off-white head with rings of lacing as the beer was quaffed. Malt backbone with a huge hop aroma. Taste was slightly bitter, mostly hop flavors, and residual malt on the back. Very pleasant and would definitely seek out again. Delicious to say the least.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump The Pub Leicester. An amber coloured beer with white bubbles for a head. Insanely hoppy aroma for a British beer. A strong chinooky nose with follows through to the flavour. Sweetish malts give a lovely backbone balance. A good long finish with a touch of caramel late on. Really really tasty.

Cask at St Albans beer festival 2011. An amber coloured pour with a medium fluffy off white head on top. Sweet, hoppy, passion fruit aroma. Taste is similar, passion fruit, hoppy, sweet, malty, caramel. Quite rich and boozy in the US mould. Very well balanced, a really great beer from Oakham.

Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat Brewery Tap/The Cider Shed, Norwich. Poured with a fine though mostly lasting bubbly off-white head atop a clear chestnut amber body. Juicy peach, strawberry & tangerine aromas. Some earth in amongst juicy, bitter citrus fruits & a nice malt body on the tongue. Soft mouthfeel & a lingering bitterness.

Half for breakfast@ Crown Oakham Beer Fest, Nuneaton, 09/09/11 (TEN Oakham beers on handpull). Honey amber with a firm, off white cap. Beautifully perfumed aroma of flowers, lemon zest, passion fruit and discreet green. Perfumed tropical character with mellow soft passion fruit, lemon icing and Jelly Tot notes over a robust husky base. A lick of heat and marzipan on the finish. Top stuff- bring on The Baron..
