3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)
Pale, hazy, small head. Wheaty aroma. Crisp palate. Bitter and biting
taste. Very nice, but this is so hoppy you’d probably only want one pint
of it in an evening! Rating discovered while packing for a move in 2010.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Slightly murky, which, I think, was more down to cellarmanship than anything else. Faintly sour, with an apple-like nose. Improved slightly with drinking, with some citrus aromas coming through, but there was still a slightly vinegary/vineous aroma that shouldn’t be there. One to re-rate, I reckon, as Oakham beers are pretty fine normally.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Hatch End W’Spoons. Golden coloured ale with a fresh floral aroma. Quite hoppy for a wheat beer. Any beer brewed by Oakham is decent. This went down very nicely on a very warm late Spring day in suburbia.

I like Oakham they put a shed load of hops in everything even a wheatbeer! This is a really interesting twist on a wheat beer and is spectacularly refreshing! i’ve marked it down on appearance only because it’s crystal clear

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Very pale straw with a thin white head; weak citrus aroma; surprisingly full-bodied; clean and fresh tasting with lemon and a dry biscuity body; gently bitter Grapefruit finish. Very refreshing.

Cask at Penderels Oak, a clear straw-gold with a fine white head, lots of floral hops on the nose with a hint of biscuit. Sharply bitter, with a light grainy body hopped into dryness and a long long dry-bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the New Crown (JDW) in Southgate. Thanks Magicdave! Clear golden amber with a line of white head. Funky grassy aroma. Good taste though, quite a lot of hops for a wheat ale. Not too heavy or wheaty however. I enjoyed this.
