COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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!

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is fairly subtle.... hay, grass, hopsack, faint gooseberry, greengage etc. The taste is gooseberry, light tartness, pithy citrus, bitter grass and straw with a pretty dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Light, flavoursome and drinkable. A solid golden ale.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Cask @ CPK. The pou’r light gold with a small, creamy white head. The nose is of fresh lemon peel, piss, some juicy fruit gum and funky armpit. The taste is much the same: plenty of brash, tropical hoppy flavors. Good citrus fruit salad presence, bitter grass, salt. Light body, great ebullient texture. Overall, another solid effort from Oakham!

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Gravity dispense at the Duchess of Cambridge, Stamford Brook - 12/07/12. Hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Minimal nose with some sweeter fruits - apricot/peaches backed up by citrus fruit. Hop forward flavour, citrus, less of the sweet fruits on the nose and a little grassy. Bitter finish. Lower down the order compared to other beers I’ve had from Oakham.
