COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - September & October. Originally brewed as a Special for Peterborough beer festival 2009.
Pharaoh’s Gold in colour with an aroma rich with kiwi fruit. A powerful taste of lime zest and citrus flavours yield to a hop resin background, before you pay homage to a long, bitter finish that’s drier than a camel’s toe!

sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Poured with a medium sized & lasting fluffy white head. A nice & bright golden yellow body. The aroma is fantastic, loaded with grapefruit, lemon sherbet & peach with an underlying creamy strawberry cheesecake quality about it. Lemon zest & a brilliant though subtle pale malt sweetness leads to a piney, grapefruity finish. So crisp & hoppy, light bodied & superbly quaffable. Finishes slightly dry with a great length to the end. Really fantastic, I’m still waiting for Oakham to put a foot wrong.

leaparsons (10549) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Golden with an off-white foam. Aromas are lots of grapefruit and kiwi with light biscuit malts. Floral and peppery with yeast. Flavours are bitter grapefruit with green piney notes. Some sweet biscuit malts on the base. Really fresh and fruity with a peppery, dry, bitter finish. Really good.

Ale_Imp (1) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010 does not count
Cast, The White Hart, St Albans. Pale in colour. Childish aroma, think Lilt/Um-Bongo. Fruity blast on initial taste, sweet at first followed by bitter lemon. Dry finish. A grower that packs a punch...(fruit).

3.5
planky84 (3263) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Cask at the ’Grape and Grain’ beer festival, Crystal Palace. Gold pour with a white head. Citrus, pineapple and hop aromas. Nice citrus burst in the taste with a bit of caramel and herbs. Sharp hop finish. Refreshing.

dynamiteninja (1864) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Cask. The Pub, Leicester. Mmmm. I liked this one a lot. Thin white head, pale gold body. Good lacing. Grapefruit, biscuit and hoppy aroma. Astringent. Bitter dry finish. Soft mouthfeel.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’10. Gold with a white head. Coming to the bottom of the cask by all accounts. Gentle citric hop aroma with a hint of oats. Sharp, soapy citric hops in the taste. Despite Bedford’s much-lauded ’power cooled’ jackets, I thought this was a bit warm.

Leighton (21256) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2010
Cask at The Rake, London. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a strong, white head. Hoppy aroma with grass and zesty citrus. Lightly sweet with tons of bitterness in the form of grapefruit and pine, mostly. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes very dry and hoppy with subtle malts. Great.

imdownthepub (14555) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Wagon & Horses, Halesowen, W.Mids. Gold with white head. Particularly dry beer with terrific hoppy dry notes. Lots of grapefruit and resinous bitterness. Another cracker from Oakham.

3.7
berkshirejohn (6501) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2009
Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge. AMber with a dense white head; aroma of orange and peach; sweet and fruity flavour with more peach and orange, then a clean grapefruit bitterness to finish with a touch of lemon. Excellent.

3.4
DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
Cask at peterborough beer fest 2009. Alround rating: Pale and light toffee malts, grassy with a bit of lime off the hop, lasting bitterness. Decent show.
