jjsint (2834) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Gravity cask at the St Neots Booze on the Ouse Beer Festival 2016. Light honey brown, with some loose off-white head. Muted aroma of soft citrus, biscuity malt and more than a hint of tamarind. Malt is more prominent in the front of the taste, with a sweet, chewy and almost savoury character. The end of the sip brings a long dry earthy bitterness. Not the most exciting style, but Oakham manage to stir things up a bit.
