Gravicask (PBBF2012, Fri)
Lychee and other sweet fruits. Orange, brief head. Huge fruity body, lychee, peach, even pineapple. Smooth palate, even a little sticky. But there’s a lovely bitter finish that crispens up the mouth nicely. Good balance. Classic Oakham - like it!

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2011
Gravity, Leicester 2011. Dusted copper with a generous cream head and lace. Bright, lime jelly and husky malt aroma. Bullying Norweigian floweriness and husk, praline, grapefruit. Slight Southern Comfort, bilious orange bitterness in the finish. Bright hops and husky malt. Alcohol very well concealed- until you start running for the X6. No surprises- up to Oakham’s usual standards.
