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.

Very much like other Oakham beers Iíve tried; thin, pale, citrusy. Not my bag.

Cuso (7549) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2016
Lost rating from notes. Cambridge 2013. Clear deep yellow color with a nice white head. Malty, fruity, hoppy aroma. Moderate sweet malty taste with some fruits and light hoppy bitterness in finish. Good.

mabuzzer (540) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Cask in the Architect, Cambridge. Clear and very pale yellow with a white head. Lemon aroma, taste is dominated by citrus hops. Bit thin, perhaps, and definitely very pale, but rather nice

theprof (452) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Cask at the Falcon. Pours pale gold with thin top. Floral scents of citrus. Tastes of pine woods and grasses. A resinous palate with some light hints of biscuit. On a cold winters night with a fire opposite itís almost nostalgic of summers gone. Good but it will never persuade me to switch allegiance from the darker brews. Put less diplomatically an American ale imperfectly reconstructed

Cask @William K Frederik. Clear dark chestnut color. Thick and firm white-yellow head, stays. Sweet, malty, fruity, bit of melon in aroma. Caramel, malty, fruity, sweet in taste. Soft bitterness. Hazelnuts in aftertaste. Nice full body. Lovely brew.

teorn88 (6043) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean pale golden color with medium white head. Aroma is grassy and lemony, with citrus leaves and straw. Taste has some bread, grains, grass and lemon peel. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok golden

A disappointment to my taste buds. The aroma was there, but it was like it was a blend with a little of lots of different things. To be fair, this beer did improve whilst sitting, but I just felt that it was off-balance.

Mr_Pink_152 (3476) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Tried at the Cardinals Hat, Lincoln. Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Floral and fruity aroma. Taste a touch light but refreshing.

tombyars (1579) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 9th August 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale straw in colour with a wispy white head. Dry hop flowers in the short bitter aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base delivers a light fruity note of lychees and fragrant elderflower. Again floral notes present in the short hoppy aftertaste. This continues into a light hoppy finish which is slightly dry in the mouth. A poor session Golden Ale.
