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.

A pint in the mansion house . Golden with thin head. Flowery with just the right amounts of hops on the aroma which as well, add perfect bitter balance to the the over all Sweet and fruity taste. Probably the best Oakham beer i ever had.

Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Golden appearance with small off white head and a pleasant light citrus aroma, lemon and melon. Taste of hops with citrus and light fruits coming through to a slightly bitter, pithy and dry lasting aftertaste. Not at all bad, and as usual another decent beer from the Oakham fold.

Cask at The Leeky Tap, Leek. A slightly hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of melon, lemon, some grain and slight floral hops. Taste is similar of melon, lemon, some grain and slight grassy, floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, grainy, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A crisp, easy drinking, citrusy golden ale with a grainy background, but not lagerlike and lightly floral late on. A good Oakham beer.
