2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. Bright and shimmering; a deep amber, still in appearance and donned by a messy, inch of frothy off-white foam that daubs a thick lace. Well there is gooseberry and peach on the nose, as is hints of green peppercorn, fresh baked Anzac biscuit, leafy green herbs, lemon peel and nettles. Palate has a candyish quality with a piercing floral backend. Quite tart and tight managing to hold juicy and sour fruit against spicy herbs, flower petals, toasted malts and a touch of burnt sugar. All is a little muddled but comes together in the finish where there is a whiff of smoke. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach so one was enough. Didn’t quite get into this one. (50cL, 4.8% ABV, BB 30/09/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Draper’s Arms, Peterborough. Golden-amber with a thick white head. Grapefruit and tropical fruits up front with some flowers and a touch of pine following. Plenty of hops here, but still a good balance of sweet malt against the bitterness. Very tasty, very drinkable, very more-ish. Oakham do make this sort of beer very well indeed.
