3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at CPK - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma holds simple pale malts, light citrus fruits, lemon. Light-medium sweet flavor with an interesting white tea character, some lemon meringue, tangerine, light bitter hay, lemon zest. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation and soft mouthfeel; pretty good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish with hints of Earl Grey, more mellowed citrus fruits, pale bread, low bitterness. Tasty beer. Novel and quite drinkable.

Cask at CP&K. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, fragrant, watermelon, light grassy/herbal, fennel?! almost sorachi ace-like nose, creamy, guanabana and rice pudding. The taste is crisp, bitter, light sweetness, biscuity malt, toasty grain, citrus rind, grass, sherbet, icing sugar, grapefruit and lemon rind with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Quite a lot going on for the style. Good.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2016 Cask, Chelmsford Ale House, 20th January 2015. Typically golden ale. Grapefruit, lemons, some slight petrol, quite tough on drinkability
Think this got hot in transit as it isnít what it should be. Considerable off-flavours which I rarely get from Oakham.
Hmmm. another cask at Chelmsford AleHouse...this time on spectacular form..
White lacing. Golden appearance. Dropped bright. Lots of tangerines, mangos, soft malts, marmalade, excellent bitterness. Super clean. Great yeast. Yeah Oakham awesomeness again. Brilliant

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Merchants Inn, Rugby.
Clear Golden beer with a white fuzzy head, Malty Biscuit Citrus notes, but a little flat and no tangy finish I would have expected from Oakham beers. Slight hoppy notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask @ Cloisters.
Appearance - golden with a nice head.
Nose - honey and limes.
Taste - lime scented honey again, almost but not quite going into lime marmalade.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long tangy texture.
Overall - enjoyable beer. I think this was 5.6% to be honest, so top end for Golden Ale.
