Cask; Regular. Aka Jeffrey Hudson Bitter. Also available bottled @ 4.2% abv.

A golden beer whose aroma is dominated by hops that give characteristic citrus notes. Hops and fruit on the palate are balanced by malt and a bitter base. Dry hoppy finish with soft fruit flavors. A nationally respected ale, winner of numerous awards, JHB is a blond baby packed with flavour & perfect for those long sessions as well as a quick pint at lunchtime. This popular beer was crowned Champion beer of britain in the bitter category in 2001 and 1999.
Challenger and American Mount Hood hops.

Clear golden color with white foam. Aromas, sweet of soap and shampoo, quite floral and bit artifilial. Palate, light body, smooth light thin texture leaving light floral finish. Taste, sweet, light hops, floral and soapy quite wierd. Overall, has wierd soap and shampoo taste nto a fan of that, in a way tastes not amazing and not a good beer I think has this artificial feel to it..

500ml Bottle from Drygate bottle shop, Glasgow (Ł3.60):
Nice stuff from Oakham Ales here, this one was well-balanced & fresh with some good floral flavours & was exactly what you’d expect from a good golden ale. The beer was an easy one to drink with some good pale malts & bread to kick things off alongside a pleasant citrus zest & nice bitterness; it’s definitely one of the better beers of the style that I’ve tried of late & one that I wouldn’t object to having again at some point either; although it’s probably not quite as good as the breweries Citra pale ale offering but it’s not too far off it either.

An unusual, almost ciderry smell. Clear as crystal, white head disappeared pretty swiftly and a disappointing bland taste

Pint at the local. Pale yellow with thin head. Aroma is sour with citrus. Taste hoppy with slight vinegary note and Bramley apples.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2016 From tap at the Three Legged Mare in York. A misleadingly golden colour bitter. Its bitter and sharp with some fresh citric hops coming through. Its everything I like in a bitter!

Cask. Aroma of citrus fruit and floral notes. Pours golden with white top, some lacing. Tastes smoothly of hoppy fruits with just a thin bckbone of biscuit . Clear refreshing and easy drinking

Bottle from Home Bargains. This was priced so cheaply (about £1) I thought I'd try it but didn't expect much. I'm glad I did. Big for the abv, it kind of bursts on your tongue and fills your mouth. So fresh and very good indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
