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.
On cask at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, oak, candy sugar and grassy hops. Similar flavours with candy sugar and alcohol both quite prominent. Just a little sweet. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. OK. Leighton (22019) - 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 George, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, straw, honey, perfumed, floral, apple and pear drops. The taste is soft fruit...melon, apricot, pear, honey, light toast, sweet bread, alcohol kick, light pine and some spice with a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and pretty drinkable at this sort of abv. Good work. RichTheVillan (8109) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014

Cask at the hanging bat. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of marzipan and dried fruit, light booze heat. Taste is more dried mixed peel, booze, marzipan. Sweet finish, oily texture. The_Osprey (8682) - 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. Can’t imagine this shifting too quickly at a spoons pub, but very happy to see it here. The pump clip suggests it’s going to smash your head into two pieces...and it delivers.
