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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Chelmsford Ale House, 20th January 2015. Typically golden ale. Grapefruit, lemons, some slight petrol, quite tough on drinkability
Think this got hot in transit as it isnít what it should be. Considerable off-flavours which I rarely get from Oakham.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask @ Cloisters.
Appearance - golden with a nice head.
Nose - honey and limes.
Taste - lime scented honey again, almost but not quite going into lime marmalade.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long tangy texture.
Overall - enjoyable beer. I think this was 5.6% to be honest, so top end for Golden Ale.
