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.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo) (6:3:7:4:14=3.4)
Woo woo! Oakham’s back in Finland! Sweet massively fruity and citrussy hoppy aroma. Taste the same - loads of new world hops in perfect balance, and not overpowering at all. Lovely citrussy finish too. All of this bundled in an unassuming 4% "golden ale" - brilliant! Welcome back Oakham - you’ve been missed.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (7:3:7:4:15=3.6)
Woo-hoo - Oakham’s in Estonia! Damn, beautiful lemony aroma. Crisp palate, massively thirst-quenching. Gentle honey in the mouth, and finish. Slightly perfumet. Beautifully hopped, tons of aroma and a nice little final bite. Storming.

sm89walt (1827) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2009
Cask - The Phoenix, Canterbury. Clear golden with a fine, lasting white head and a bubbly lacing. Floral, grass and lime citrus hops on the nose. Grass and citrus again, flavour-wise, with grapefruit and a resiny hoppiness with a lime/grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a lasting bitter citrus palate finish. A quaffable and moreish beer with a refreshing bitterness.
