Bottle from M&S Brixton. Got excited about these beers being from Oakham but this one is pretty much in the bog standard golden ale catagory, Clear golden amber with a fairly hefty white light foam head. Nose is honeyish biscuit malt, cereal grain husky and musky, slight citrous peel, dab of grapefruit. taste is quite a dry citrous bitter hop, with something earthier and more astringent, honeyish cereal malt. In the finish there’s a bit of mild grapefruit rind. BrewTom (661) - - SEP 27, 2015
Sweet nose with some grassy hops. Plenty of earthy wood flavour subtlety balanced with biscuity malt. An excellent modern take on this traditional British style.

Pours clear golden. Aroma is malty and slightly hoppy. Lots of flavor, malty and hoppy. But light and refreshing. Senka (1097) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2015
50cl. Beautifull, gentle floral and a bit grassy spring hops. Pours clear golden, with thick head. Head retention is beautiful. Lacing is beautiful. Gently bitter, hoppy and grassy to taste. Rather thin. Very refreshing. Good when warm and cold. Vincent68 (681) - Nitra, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 9, 2015
500 ml fľaša v akcii Marks & Spencer Nitra. Takmer citrónovožltá farba, jemná krémová biela pena, aróma chmeľu a citrusov. Stredná rezkosť, od začiatku nástup horkosti, citrus, tráva byliny, horkosť sa drží dlho a pomaly doznieva.

Un goût franc et marqué de noisette et de malt, une bière de caractère vraiment anglaise. thmsboyd (218) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle BBE: 09.15. Well-chilled. Pours a clear golden body with a medium, tight, creamy white head. Zesty nose predominantly of lemon with a little pine. A medium, slightly floral sweetness is followed up by a medium bitterness. Nicely-balanced and crisp. Light-medium bodied with a smooth texture, medium-low carbonation and a lasting finish. Nothing out of the ordinary, but a staple beer done very well. RichTheVillan (8457) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from M&S New Oscott; clear straw yellow pour with a thin white head, aroma has fresh lemon, taste has lemon, a hint of pine, some grapefruit, very clean crisp and refreshing, it’s easy to mock goldes but this is well crushable.
