3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 4.8@angle. Golden coppery, filtered. Nice grapefruity hoppy nose with scottish- like nutty caramel. Lightish body, bitter dry. Earthy hops, english caramel. Quite good, pretty close to my ideal english strong bitter: Has the english earthy hops, nutty caramel, but still slightly grapefruity, uplifting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma has a lovely fruity character with notes of earth and a bit of herbal character. Fairly assertive bitterness with a bit of pine character. Very light citrus and a touch of pepper. Decent - but pretty simple pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
