JohnCook101 (535) - - MAR 3, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent head and good lacing. Flavours of stone fruits - peach, apricot and nectarine. A good citrus background with a little grass and mild grain. Sweetness and bitterness in very good balance here, leaving a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very nice indeed, this would make an excellent session beer.

ManVsBeer (9221) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Pale golden coloured ale with an ugly bubbly head. Its character is hoppy tropical fruits in both aroma and taste but with a bitter aftertaste.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
Cask. Pale golden beer. Smells like its gonna be hoppy! Tastes like it is hoppy but a nice amount, like you expect from Oakham beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask @ Staggs Musselburgh 190113
Pale straw, clear, dense white head, good lacing
Aroma - soft citrus hops, light pale malts, not a lot in the nose
Taste - light pale malts, soft fruits, dab of apricot
Palate - light to thin body, fairly oily texture overall, bit creamy. Finish s main flavour, slight dry, soft bitter zest linger
Overall - It was OK but the least impressive of the 3 Oakhams I tried tonight

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Cask at the Ribs/Rose. Golden and very smooth with a short-lived but surprisingly dense head. Lots of flavour and quite bitter for a golden beer with strong hops. Nice caramels from the grain and a hint of vanilla, which stop the citrus from being to sharp. Excellent session beer.
