UPDATED: DEC 21, 2018 It's nothing desperately exciting but Oakham know their way around a pale, hoppy citrus thing and this is no exception. Light, crisp, some lemony citrus and a nice, dry zesty finish. Plenty quaffable.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2018 Cask beer at the Last Post JDW. This beer is paler than a Goth competing at a 'who's the palest' contest. Once I got over it's frankly Mr.Shankly unappetising looks this is a mighty fine session beer. I had several pints and enjoyed them all without being reminded of a greengrocers or an exotic location. One for the drinker not the ponce. John Wayne is big leggy.

Bottle - clear, golden yellow. No carbonation, decent white head which slowly dissipates. Strong citrus aroma. Good mouthfeel. Good citrus tasting, bitter finish. Easy drinking - refreshing.

Cask @ The Alexandra Arms, Cambridge. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, flowers, malt and hops. Sweet finish.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2018 Nice and refreshing. I think it used to have more depth of flavor when it won aGBBF award.

HopDoctorsHusband (83) - Bloxwich, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2018
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2018 On cask at the Bloxwich Showman. Pours a very light yellowish colour. Lemon aroma with citrus and hoppy flavour. At 3.8 it makes a decent, refreshing session ale.

Lore (3592) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2018 Slightly opalescent golden colour, moderate sized white head; aroma of floral-honey, fruity, grainy and moderate citrusy notes; well balanced bittersweet taste with candy sugar, honey, bittery orange zest and fruity notes; refreshing ale

mabel (10726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2018
[10157-20180226] Cask. Fragrant onion lemon aroma with a hint of applesauce. Slightly hazy, pale yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter apple floral hops flavour. Medium body. Average. (6/3/7/3/12+) 3.1
(@ Bunch of Grapes, Pontypridd, Wales)

Dbcwi88 (327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2018
Very pale. Sweet malt and citrus smell. Pithy notes dominate and biscuity malt backbone. Ok but not a bitter (as advertised)
