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

DanielBrown (3848) - 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.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Cask at the New Crown (JDW) in Southgate. Thanks Magicdave! Dark amber. Great malty caramel flavour. Rich, full bodied yet very drinkable. A great example of a strong ale.

evergreen0199 (2074) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2009
Cask at W’Spoons Southgate Nth London. Deep brown colour, malty and some toffee and of course the hops. Also a little musty as if an antique beer. US influenced, pretty good find.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Cask real ale tasted at Gallows Bird RAF 2010. Strong sourish nose with some hints of old cheese. Thin pale head. Dark nutty copper brown colour. Roasty malty taste. Bitter hoppiness.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Gravity, Merton Winter Beer festival. Copper, lasting cream froth head. Lots of green hop aroma: melon, juniper cinnamon. Resiny hop bitterness, appealingly rough and aggressive. Melon flavor in a way that seems to capture the chin-dripping stickiness of ripe musk melon, while being simultaneously a crisply dry beer. That’s impossible, but yet...there it is! This is dangerous stuff! We may have created a hole in the space-time continuum!

28 days... 6 hours... 42 minutes... 12 seconds. That... is when the world... will end.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Rake. Amber brown with a beige foaming head. Everything I expect from Oakham. Luscious, resinous, dynamic citrus bitterness, juicey malt, great body.....where are the tissues?.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Cask at Gallows XIII Real Ale Fest. Clear, bronze body, moderately bitter taste with lightly astringent finish. Complex aromas have caramel, flowers, pine and leather.

Phil (178) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
The downside, not a lot. I’m 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
