Cask at Brewery Tap, Peterborough. What better way to end a hard afternoon at the festival than enjoying a pint of (one of) Oakham’s finest in their own pub? Blooming gold body, thin white head, wonderful citric hopped taste and aroma, great beer to round off a long day.

Another rather boring (but not bad) perfumed golden summer ale with american hops. When will this trend end, I wonder. A nice beeer but so are 100 other beers of this style.

pughy1957 (62) - Rugby, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 A light hoppy, refreshing beer, with fabulous flavour. A lip-smacking taste, makes you thirst for more. This is a fantastic session beer and is exceptionally good for its gravity. Well worth trying.

tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - JUL 28, 2004
both bottled and cask from the old moot hall inn, nottingham. an excellent quaffing bitter which, when served right can be nigh on perfect for a session ale. lots of hops and medium bitterness, very floral and citrussy. can drink a whole barrel a still wake up the next morning bright eyed and bushy tailed... welll, almost.

JonMoore (2013) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2004
Bottle. Very pale golden colour. Citrus aroma. Very citrusy, bitter hop flavour. Moderate carbonation and medium mouthfeel with a sharp hoppy finish. Not bad but I remember the draught as being better.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Superb bitter, maybe not traditionally English as it uses American hops, but still superb. Packed with lime and lemon zest aromas and tastes, some maltiness, but overall a bitter, hoppy, citrussy and VERY refreshing brew that drinks a lot stronger than it’s ABV. World class stuff.
