harrisoni (14139) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Cask handpull at The Barton Arms, Aston. Bit of earthy hop on the aroma. Lots of tangerine fruit. You can taste the alcohol which is not a good sign. Although others enjoyed this. It is not my favourite Oakham beer. And the other beers on the JHB, Bishops Farewell and the Citra were all so stunning, it rather put this in the shade.

Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest ’10. Slightly hazed Gold with white head. Ahh Oakham, one of the British Brewers that make the pulse race when you see it on, and this is exactly why, I see the word intense in it’s description and yes it is, but in a very drinkable way. Masses of grapefruit skin notes giving it a presence that forces you to take interest, you can feel the zest and life of it. Dry and hoppy, lasting on the palate, mouthwatering and very nice indeed.

Decent cask IPA.
