COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular (previously Occasional). Also available bottled at 4.8% - filtered but unpasteurised.
Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that’s as sharp as a macaw’s screech!

Bottle. Lovely holden appearance.Small head. Hoppy with some subtle spices also present .Quite complex yet so easy to drink. Interesting label for a very interesting beer.

fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose. I normally like Oakham’s beers, and this was no exception. Bright amber in colour, fruity hoppy nose. Summer fruits and a lingering bitterness. Great level of carbonation - not too fizzy. Cracking beer. Must buy more.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Clear, dull amber pour with a yellowish head of average disposition, that sticks around for a goodly amount of time. Pineapple and other tropical fruit dominate the nose with a wet caramel back. Could be more intense. Medium body with a nice mouthfeel and light bitterness in the finish. Slightly tart tropical flavours.

Garrold (1716) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose. Copper coloured, thin white head. Aroma of ripe raspberries. Then it goes a bit downhill. Taste is bitter, burnt caramel. Overly sweet. Not my thing really.

Stumblor (64) - - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden and clear, big bubbles but not many if them. Nose is a good blend of citrusy hops and biscuity malt. Taste is clean and fruity, strawberry, pineapple orange, but very hoppy, a touch caustic. Enjoyable but slightly off.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Light copper in colour with a very thin head. Sweet syrupy malt aroma and extremely bitter.

Hop_Hedonist (260) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2013
From the commercial description on the actual bottle, I expected a big hoppy hit but am disappointed - dull aroma, flat (typical of English Ale) and mediocre palate. Not thirst quenching. Dull and uninspiring. Unpleasant mouthfeel afterwards.

RichardW (1550) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Bottled from Glug Newcastle. This is stunning. Beautiful tropical fruit aroma and flavour, soft semi sweet palate with light caramel. Peppery traces give a fine tang at the back of the throat and there’s warmth in the finish. Lovely amber colour, one of my favourites this year.

Bottle at home with BBQ, 11th August 2013. Good depth of flavour, nice stuff and easy drinking
