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.

Hazy orange beer with a thick creamy head. Very light citrus smell. Flavour is sweet and lemony but not sickly. Slightly spicy, floral backtaste. Smooth, easy going and very drinkable.

Nocturne (1082) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Cask at Jack in the Box, Altrincham. Slightly hazy orange. White head, rings of lacing. Lovely juicy hop taste. Soft green tea, very tangy fruits, citrussy like grapefruit mainly. Oakham really know how to do a hoppy beer and this is no exception.

DrGD (103) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Great beer by Oakham! Beautiful deep golden colour with white foam. Aromas of fruits, hops, hint of caramel and malts. Taste: very fresh and clean. Citrus fruits, damsons, caramel, honey, and a gingery, bitter finale! Delicious and very drinkable, this is a little gem of a beer!!

thepeter (324) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
Cask at Market Porter. Pours amber with slight head. Aroma of fruit (peach and grape) bit of brown sugar and fresh hops. All subtle nothing overpowering the other. Ver well balanced. Similar for the taste. I still get some slight sweetness but more field and slight fruit. Light Med palate, easy to drink because it is so fuckin good.

MikeTheRocker (18) - Gävle, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle at Dino’s Restaurant and Pub in Mariehamn, Åland, Finland sep-14. Intense bitterness in USA-style, lots and lots of citrushoppyness. Too much for me though. A medium beer with too heavy citrtus bitterness. All other tastes disappears.
