Oblivion has a strong spiced fruit aroma, with a rich malt and full on fruit flavour, which lingers on in almost boundless bitter finish.

The downside, not a lot. Iím guessing amarillo, Centenial and mount hood, on a nice broad caramelly body. Sounds almost sexual. Still, very good stuff. if a tad sweet for more than a couple. Draught @ the coastguard, 29/12/07

Cask Stillage from the upstairs bar at the Ship & Mitre, Liverpool 16/02/2007 Fruit and hop aromas. Dark mid brown coloured with some alcohol present. Fruity bubble gum flavour. Crisp and bitter malt finish.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense), White Cliffs Best Festival. Attractive bronzed copper colour. Big Pacific North-West hop aroma - flowery and aromatic. Powerful grapefruit flavour with some tropical fruit notes. Thereís some malt providing and almost chocolate touch in the background. Sharp, resinous hop finish, tending towards astringent. Could easily be mistaken for an American beer and there are not too many British beers you could say that about. Assured and impressive.

Bright bottled at Dover Beer Fest 2007. Well, this is a delicious beer and thatís a fact. Great mix of hops and malt. Lovely brew - smooth, clean and flawless. The hops are strong, but are in harmony with the malts. Iíd love to know what malts and hops are used here, and in what proportion, because they work together so well. Fascinating aroma of damp leather and lilies, great mouthful of honeyed toffee malt with a scintillating rush of electric citric hops full of flowers and fruit. A grand, grand beer.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2007. As it seems to be always with me, I have an Oakham beer as the first beer of a festival and almost always ends up being beer of the festival for me. Does this one? Not sure yet. Deep chestnut colour with lasting bubbly beige head. Trademark grapefruit. Unbelievably hoppy for a British beer. Good toffeeish malt. Nice mixed finish. Grapefruit leafyness is lovely. Great resiny pine throughout.

DanielBrown (3771) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2006
Hand pulled at the Criterion, Leicester. Really hardcore hops. Varnished finish, lasting and tart. The hop is sweet to start with, with a double IPA style flavour. Chestnut colour. Challenging and full.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2005
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Reddish brown beer with a bubbly head. The aroma is malty and hopped and the flavour is very sweet and very bitter. Overall a too sweet beer.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2005
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Mahogony in colour with a small head. Aromas are toffee malts, berries and lots of floral and spicy hops. Very flowery. Flavours are toffee base malts beneath lots of addictive hops. Also has some fruit. Very dry and bitter towards the finish with more bitterness on the aftertaste. Quite full in the mouth. Very nice.
