A strong golden summer ale, brewed to be light on the palate but overflowing with flavor.

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 Cloisters, Edinburgh] Clear golden pour – after a few of their beers at the Cloisters tap takeover I’m beginning to get the Oakham house flavour, I think. They seem to love the dry, floral hops that also give a burst of tropical fruit. Although Mom’s Gold has a bit more of the dryness about it, there’s also plenty of that citrus element throughout. Doesn’t taste 5%, either [19102012]

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2011
Cask - The Plasterers Arms, Norwich. Poured with a small though lasting & lacing white to off-white head on top of a clear amber body. Subtle peach & tangerine aromas. Sweet strawberry, peach & tangerine hop flavours with an OK hop finish. Medium body, soft, frim & chewy palate texture, medium length bitterness at the end. Distinctly Oakham & another good use of hops but not my favourite offering to date from the brewery.
