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.

Golden ale. Initial fruity sweetness. A lingering bitterness. Almost sour. Nice enough but not to my tastes

minutemat (3277) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Cask pint @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours gold with white head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is smooth marmalade with some creamy mango and citrus. Good flavoursome Oakham.

purpledragons (30) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
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.

Tap (Pint, ?)
Simpe light caramelly malts, some sweet fruitiness too. Very sweet. A bit sickly, palate too sugary. Tons of sweet fruity. Lacking the crispness I like from Oakham, disappointed.

Niall73 (2364) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours light Amber with a white head. Fruity, candy aroma with a little metal. Medium body, light carbonation. Light caramel, orange, lemon, wood, hint of booze, light grapefruit... OK if a little lifeless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Cask at CPK - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma holds simple pale malts, light citrus fruits, lemon. Light-medium sweet flavor with an interesting white tea character, some lemon meringue, tangerine, light bitter hay, lemon zest. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation and soft mouthfeel; pretty good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish with hints of Earl Grey, more mellowed citrus fruits, pale bread, low bitterness. Tasty beer. Novel and quite drinkable.

Scopey (10705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, fragrant, watermelon, light grassy/herbal, fennel?! almost sorachi ace-like nose, creamy, guanabana and rice pudding. The taste is crisp, bitter, light sweetness, biscuity malt, toasty grain, citrus rind, grass, sherbet, icing sugar, grapefruit and lemon rind with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Quite a lot going on for the style. Good.

Cask at Thomson’s. 5.2%. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of malt, caramel, light herbs. Taste is quite thin, malty. Clean, dry finish.
