Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Cask at The Rake, 30th Dec 2010. Hazy orange, no head. A mess of marmalade, toffee and cold tea. Okay orangey finish but overall a real disappointment given who the brewery is!

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
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.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Cask conditioned at the Rake, Southwark. Gold in colour with a decent white head. Sweetish malts, apricot and citrus hop aroma. Flavour had more of the malts, citrus and tropical fruit and a long dry finish. Very 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

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2009
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.
