GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.

[email protected] Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, earth, mild alcohol and also a bit spicy. Flavour is quite much the same. Fruity and spicy aftertaste along with a slight alcoholic burn.

Leighton (23125) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Gravity cask at The Old Fountain Beer Festival, October 2012. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a tight, creamy white head. Boozy aroma with tangy citrus notes. Medium to big sweet flavors, plenty of boozy citrus fruits, some heavy dough. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with more alcohol-soaked fruits, jammy citrus, orange, light leaves, some sugars. Not a subtle tipple, but still decent.

Cask at Oaka at the Masion House, Kennington - 19/03/13. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head. Nose carries pale malts, fruit, sugar, citrus. Taste comprises orange, berry fruit, light citrus, sugars, touch of booze, moderate hop presence. Full end of medium bodied with soft carbonation. Ok drinkable stuff but I’ve come to expect a little more from Oakham.

harrisoni (19754) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2005
Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. Does not taste as strong as it is. I had it with a Thai meal and did not realise its strength until I was trying to diffuse the hot chilli sauce, by swigging this like JHB. Found out half way through the meal that I was a bit wobbly. Got the usual Oakham citric hop flavours but a bit more metallic

TBone (18755) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
[email protected] 2009. Yellow color, small white head. Crisp lemony aroma, very citrus fruity. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity, lime, fruit sugar. A bit sticky. Slightly hard to rate. Lemon bomb.

FatPhil (17513) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2010
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2010)
6 touch of butter but otherwise rich.
4 deep gold, flat
7 simple sweet malty palate
4 low carbonation, supersoft palate, a touch sweet and sticky, but lovely. Without the sweetness this would be 5
15 fuck me 7.5 percent. No way.
