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 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.

MarkoNm (681) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/golden color, topped with a decent and quickly settling white head. Malty aroma, some nice and easily picked up fruity notes also here, as well as some caramel. The taste starts sweet, but soon a rather strong bitterness kicks in. Still, very drinkable and enjoyable.

MiP (13726) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle, 4.8%. Mild lemony and grapefruity aroma. Hazy golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is grapefruity at first, turning quite malty. Nice spicy hop finish. Good mouthfeel.

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours clear golden with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and hops, with touches of yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with fruity and malty notes. Lingering, bitter afteraste. A little decarb, possibly because it is several months aftert the BBD. Still, quite okay.

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Nice, crisp and refreshing. Very hoppy but with a bit of a chalky bitterness which puts it behind the same brewery's citra effort ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
