The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Cask HP at The Webb Ellis Twickenham as Oakham Attila, 7.5%. Pale golden orange, translucent, still, foamy beige head. Aroma is gummy sweets, daquiri, rum. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is quenching melon, haribo, gummy red lips sweets, sweet with some spicy white rum alcohol notes. Slow drinking but pleasurable all the while. Cant imagine this shifting too quickly at a spoons pub, but very happy to see it here. The pump clip suggests its going to smash your head into two pieces...and it delivers.

Aroma of candied fruits, lemon, elderflower, some pineapple, a little grapefruit and slight summer berries. Taste of candied fruits, summer berries, pineapple, lemon, some elderflower, subtle caramel and alcohol. Full bodied and an oily texture. A sweet, fruity bitterness in the finish. Sweet and really fruity, definitely a sipper.

prawlie (1567) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
On tap at the Nags Head in Reading. Lightly hazy yellow-orange with a fair head. Very dry flavour with an element I hestitate to say of special brew, but also with a lime hop note to it. A touch medicinal! Tastes reasonable all told. Solid rather than must have.
