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.

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).

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!)

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.

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.
