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!

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.

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).

On cask at The Three Fishes in Shrewsbury. Deep gold in colour with a minimal head. No obvious typical upfront Oakham aromas, quite subtle. Mellow on the palate with a creamy, buttery taste, reminiscent of Sorachi Ace. A bit different for an Oakham beer.

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!)
