Cask at The Artillery Arms, Ramsgate: This was a stunning pint, hoppy with lovely sweet malt. Bags of flavour. If only all summer ales were this good.

Gravity cask at Son of Sid Brewery, The Chequers, Little Gransden, Cambs’ 1st Beer Festival on 02-10-09 Pours amber with white head, crystal clear,another beer in excellent nick. Light spiciness on the nose, some ginger which was also very apparent in the mouth. Ginger was more powder than root, unusually for Oakham not as hoppy as expected. A5 A5 F6 P3 Ov12 3.3

Handpull @ The Crosse Keys. Golden with a lasting white head. Nose is quite fruity with citrus hops and pale malts. Again, lots of fruits in the flavor with a good malty backbone and a dry bitter finish. Not what I expected from Oakham but not a disappointment either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity, Summer Festival at Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Shiny copper, persistant layer of just off-white head. (Pretty sure this particular beer was gravity dispense: and in that case the attractive long-lasting head is all the more impressive.) Resiny, earthy hop aroma, just a touch of anise and cayenne, warm caramel around the edges. Clingy, woody bitterness, chewy dark bread malt, blackberries. Bitterness quite full. Lots of flavor here, and really a nice beer, but it doesn’t feel like it quite comes together into something cohesive, and lands short of true brilliance in the process.
