Cask: Regular
This light igniting ale flickers complex fruits across your tongue leaving a dry fruity bitter finish smothering your thirst. Inferno uses a blend of five different hops from the Yakima Valley to create its floral aroma and unique flavour.

berkshirejohn (5223) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Cask at the Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. An odd pale straw colour with a creamy head; tropical fruit aroma; soft and creamy in the mouth with a gentle tropical fruit taste, and surprisingly full bodied; with a lasting leafy bitterness; and some ripe mango to finish.

Hippoman (168) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours very pale and yellow with a thin white head and some haziness to the beer. Looks good. Odour of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is overly lemony, dominating the beer to the extent its hard to pick out any other characteristics. Could have been good but the lemon needs toning down.

jamesie1857 (1694) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
On cask at The James Watt, Greenock - hazy piss yellow body, thin white head. Nose is peach and grapefruit crush, a hoppy attack of flowery citrus. Taste is just the right side of bitter, long tasty citrus ending. Okay beeroverall.

Towey1989 (729) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Cask at Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, a little grain and floral hops. Taste again of citrusy dry grapefruit, peach, passion fruit , grain and floral hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A decent, refreshing, dry golden ale, I found it a little thin though.

Drank from a bottle. The taste is a bit thin but there still some spice there. Not very interesting.

Rob_D_UK (1272) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Typical clear yellow pale ale, headless, faint hoppy citrus aroma. Taste is lightly hoppy and dry citrus but lacking much depth.

jjsint (1464) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Cask @ the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Pale gold with a tiny bit of head. Orange-grapefruit aroma. Taste is bitter, citrussy and full of hop. Thin body. Oakham do so many similar beers, and most of them are good, bit this one’s a bit run-of-the-mill by Oakham standards.
