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.

BeerViking (3846) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Cask at the Kings Tun, golden brown with a lasting thin head, interesting malty sweetness at first, notable hints of grapefruit juice as well as a firm citrus bitterness taking over.

jjsint (2044) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Peterborough. Clear gild with an uneven film of white head. Buttered toast, fresh grass with a hint of tropical fruit. Sweet taste with bitter edges and the merest hintvof astringency in the finish. Nicely pungent fruity aftertaste. Medium to full body. Quite nice but not particularly exciting.

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

minutemat (3741) - 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 (51) - 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.

FatPhil (12779) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2015
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 (2417) - 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
