mcberko (6562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
On tap at the Bartons Arms, pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malts and some floral notes. Flavour brings out notes of floral hops, English hops and some smooth biscuity malts. Fairly astringent with a smooth body. On the hoppier side for an English-style bitter. Decent stuff.

mjakopa (218) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy yellow gold colour with a lighter head, nothing special here. Some lacing. Aroma is right up my alley, very hoppy, floral and somewhat exotic. There is slightly less carbonation than expected and the body of the flavour is more hollow than I had hoped. Still it’s quite fruity, hints of hops and some maltyness. Aftertaste is a very strong but short bitter, followed by a hint of pineapple and finishes with a slight metallic tingyness... Quite underwhelming from what the almost perfect aroma made me believe, but still a very drinkable blonde ale.

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours golden with a small white head. Very light floral smell. Tastes of bitter, hops, and floral flavors. Sits well on the tongue with long lasting bitter and very refreshing.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2013
Grassy, citrussy nose with some lemonade and some mango. Flavour is well hopped and well balanced with more lemonadey notes and some orange peel. Finish is pleasingly bitter with notes of papaya and melon and a long piney finish. Very nice.

One of Oakham’s best, a citrusy bitter with a refreshing after tase, this golden ale is a brilliant beld of hops, a great session beer with very little head as is the trend with most oakham beers. A must try beer!!
