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.

MesandSim (7117) - 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!

DanielBrown (3965) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2006
Hand pulled at Out of the Vaults, Leicester. Golden beer, loosely frothed head. Another very good hoopy beer from Oakham. Juicy, citric aqua flow through the mouth. High pitchyed in the centre of the tongue, with a little bit of malt grain to finish. Good. Yes.

StueyD (1284) - 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).

Cask in the rake. Alround rating: Pale light honey malt, citrusy grapefruit orange and floral hop, its massively well balanced and really tasty. Excellent.

dynamiteninja (1614) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2010
Cask. The Pub, Leicester. Thin white head, gold-amber body. Citrus notes, biscuit, pear. As it warms fruity, with alcohol starting to come through.Tangy bitterness. Dry finish. Good pint.

leaparsons (8406) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2003
Compared to JHB this is quite a boozy number. Having said that, this is quite a different beer - darker and more malty, with fruit and toffee. Still refreshing though and pretty strong for a summer quaffer (and a workday lunchtime!)

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.

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.
