Cask @ Oaka. The pour’s a deep ruby amber color with a tiny off-white head. The nose is pine resin, strawberry, some forest fruits. Light summery pacific vibes. The taste is sticky sweet caramel and toffee. Pine cone. Hints of citrus. More robust strawberry and summery fruits salad. Slightly syrupy. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, quite good.

Half pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Nicely hopped grapefruit, bitter, a touch acidic. Fair fruit hop aroma. Nice, but a half pint is enough.

Cask. Deep amber, no head. Semi-sweet, medium to full body, medium to high bitterness, low CO2. Caramel, treacle, toffee, malt, yeast. Astringent, yet sugary. (2012-11-23)

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Firstly, this beer pours with a lovely colour – ruby and port-like, with a large, cream-coloured head. The aroma is sweet passion fruit, mango, bready malt and pepper – which I wasn’t expecting. I got pepper on the taste too, and had to look it up – seemingly it has paprika added, which certainly explains the colour. The fruity hop combines really well with the pepperyness, which prickles that back of your mouth. There’s sweet caramel malt in there as well – the three elements are blended really very well indeed [19102012]

Cask by handpump at Cloisters, Edinburgh - clear brown, thin off-white head, no bubbles, fruity and sweet malt aroma and flavour, too strong for a session beer but very easy to drink

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.

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.

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.
