Cask at GBBF 2009. Golden coloured pour with a small head. Nice fruity, hoppy aroma. Malty, hoppy, fruity taste. Oakham leads the way in the UK.

Cask at GBBF 2009: good balance between malt and hops, alcohol is pretty well hidden, malt, banana, bubblegum, and limonchelo, nice.

Yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet honey, tropical flowers and tangerine. Sweet and floral flavour with some alcohol and hops in the finish. Delicious

jjsint (2487) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Cask @ St Albans Beer Festival, 2013. Bright deep golden yellow. Classic IPA aroma, with fruity bitter hop invading the nose. Sweeter than I expected but none the worse for it. Sneaky little bitter finish. Buttery creamy mouthfeel. Brilliant beer but it drinks like a session bitter!

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Trafford Arms. Golden colour, cloudy with a thin white head. Fruits, vanilla and stuff. Had a sort of oily feel to it which enhanced the lovely light feel.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
What in the name of high school football is this doing at 7.5%? No fucking way. Pint in The Magnet, Stockport. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, yeast, some correction fluid or glue. Flavour is sweet, grapefruit, elderflower, pineapple, hoppy, you do get a little strength but no way that high. Im genuinely shocked and I dont get shocked that often. WOW a blue car!

leaparsons (10054) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2003
Light gold in colour, this doesn't look dangerous. Aromas are sweet grain and alcohol vapours. Flavours are JHB on steroids. Grapefruit and grain. Grrrr.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 [email protected] BF. Nose is quite aromatic with fresh tropical, lightly piney hops (some alcohol aswell). Palate starts off with fresh, with some kiwi fruit, finishing with some appley alcohol, well balanced, with a medium bitterness.

Gravity at Swansea Bay Beer Festival, late August 2014. Boozy, viscous, summer fruits with a sweet finish. I always enjoy this one.

Cask stillage at the Birmingham CAMRA festival 2014. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is zesty citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big fruity zesty citrus, light creamy hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
