3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Cask, Swan & Rushes, Leicester. Golden brown with minimal foam. Aromas are biscuit and toffee base malts with toasted character. Black tea with floral low pine and the usual fruity hops; grapefruit, apricot, pineapple and mango with lemon. Flavours are quite malty and sweet for an Oakham brew with chewy toffee and toast. Bitter lemon and grapefruit with woody, green pine and mixed tropical fruit. Smooth on the palate with a peppery, dry tea finish. Has quite a resinous, herbal finish. Very nice.

Cask conditioned at Charters Bar, Peterborough, Cambs. Gold with white head. Full, hoppy beer, refreshing with loads of dry hoppiness. Citrus, grapefruit and kiwi fruit. Long on the palate. Terrific.
