3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Golden, with a fine bubbly foam head. Dry, bitter, light grapefruit, tasty. Grapefruit aroma, but not over the top. Very dry aftertaste, but still manages to slip down well. A good English (albeit American influenced) golden ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Old Fountain - London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a frothy white crown. Smells great, lots of citrus rind and grass. Light sweet flavor with heady bitterness of grapefruit, lemon rind and grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Grassy and lightly resinous to finish, with delicate pale malt sweetness and mild hay. The bitterness is a touch abrasive, but aside from that it’s nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand-pulled pint in the excellent ’Rib of Beef’ in Norwich on 20 Apr 2013.
This is one of those beers I currently have a problem with: I am fed up to the teeth with golden, light brews with a strong citrus aroma and taste. I should have known what I was ordering I suppose, Oakham have a few of these style of beers.
Not for me, but others love this now common style of beer in the UK. Refreshing and thirst quenching it is, malty and harty it isn’t. Anyway, scored objectively.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ CPK. Medium gold color with a small head. The aroma’s bright citrus, pee. Summery fruit orchard. A bit of salty sweat. The taste is similar. Light zippy citrus. Lemon drizzle cake. Citric bitter finish. A bit of cake dough. Really light body. Thirst quenching and pretty out-sized in flavor considering the ABV. Really cool stuff. Another quality Oakham effort.

Clear golden with a thin white head that clears to a film.
Nose is caramel malt, citrus, sugar, hops, perfume notes.
Taste comprises orange, citrus, hops, light mango, some malt presence.
