Fin (8705) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
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 (949) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Golden amber with a reddish tinge.Breakfast juice tang on the snout. Silky and humming with the kind of sweetish citrussy hoppage you’d expect.Bags of lemon, mandarin and biscuity malt.Trace of alcohol.They brew better, but a solid,zesty GA.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 17, 2008
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.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Northamptonshire BF. A golden coloured beer with a hoppy citrus nose with just a hint of sweet malt. Nicely balanced in the mouth, and not as overly hoppy as some Oakham beers, but it could be that the extra strength allows it all to work.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Wenlock. Beautiful golden brown colour with a slight white head. Nose of amyl nitrate, slight alcohol and tonnes of grapefruit hoppage. LOVELY. More citric hops in the flavour with just a lick of malt in the finish for balance. Excellent mouthfeel. Tasty tasty tasty!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 20, 2007
Pint pulled at The Bricklayers Arms in Putney (London), a clear amber/gold with a white foamy head. A very nice uncomplicated flowery hop aroma. A very smooth palate with a gentle bitterness, a hoppy flavour with some fruit sweetness hanging around the edges.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Sweet, floral, hoppy aroma with honey and malt. Grassy hop taste and sweet fruit: blackberries and raspberries. Mid to low bitterness. Utterly delicious.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2006
A mid golde to orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, hoppy aroma, loads of citrus fruit, particularly lemon. The taste is dry, hoppy, floral and zesty, lemony citrus fruit flavours. The finish is dry and citrusy. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2006
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. I think that this will be my lowest rated Oakham beer! Copper coloured, thin white head. Bit maltier than most of Oakhams with some red fruit and attractive hop aroma. Some strawberry in mouth and strong hop finish. Distinctive hop bitterness. I love the finish on this, mixed with the strawberry fruit and malt.
