Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 15/11/13. A pale, almost straw coloured beer with a white bubbly head and lace. Sharp hops with bitter lemon notes. A sour edge I get from green hop beers which I really don;t like. Cordially. Not my thing. Worst Oakham Experience EVER.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Craft, Clerko, 25/10/13.
Clear pale blond with a moderately sized white head.
Nose is citric fruit, lemon sherbet, grassy, soft bread dough.
Taste comprises orange, grass, light hop billing, lemon sherbet, lightly toasted malts.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy finale.
Decent enough but not much depth, I expect more flavour from an Oakham Golden Blond - they are pretty much the ones to look up to in this style!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Craft Clerkenwell. It pours pale with a medium white head. The nose is hay, doughy, light floral, hay, grass and soft peach. The taste is crisp, leaf, grass, floral, smooth bitterness, grapefruit, white grape and zesty lime with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, crisp and drinkable, but perhaps not Oakham’s finest.
