’Connells, Tampere (backlog). Amber colour with mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops and some caramel and honey as well. Flavour is grassy, fruity and floral hops along with mild wooden and nutty notes.
Cask at The Artillery Arms, Ramsgate: Red brown colour, quite hoppy and sweet. Pleasant malt background. Overall a good beer, but I found it mildly disappointing for an Oakham beer. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2009

Cask RA. Dark brown colour. Some licorice in the taste. Round spongelike taste. bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2008
Cask at the Magnolia in S.F. Light caramel aroma. Dark amber color with a little white head. Smoth, near medium in body, andno real carbonation. Starts with very well balanced lightly roasted malt and floral/fruit bitter. Finishes pretty dry, yet mildly fruity with fruit/floral hop. It’s good to be in England (in S.F.).

(Cask at Gallows Bird on 2008-01-26) Taste is a bit sweet but roasted malts and fuity hops balance it quite nicely. beastiefan2k (4076) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2008
The color is a clear, dark brown. Aroma is fruity hops (not American), very strong, which creates a British hop juice sensation; very nice and original. It’s hoppy yet British. The taste is not as interesting, its a watery hop mess and the reduced carbonation just makes it seem bad. I would love to try this bottled and not on cask.cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
Cask @ Beer Table, British pint glass.
Cask @ redlight redlight. Deep amber with a white head. On the nose, light citrisy hops with slight bready malts. Citrus hop bitterness leads, you can detect a subtle sweet malt backbone, and closes with a tangerine like hop finish. Very unique hoppiness, I hope to find Sorachi Ace hops in more of my beers. This was quite a good bitter, hope to have a shot at it again. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2008
Cask @ Max’s in Baltimore. Copper appearance with a large beige head and good lacing. Muted, mild floral and citrus aroma. Interesting taste; a bitter, hoppy start and finsh with toasted malts caught in the middle. The lemony characteristics of the specialty hop was more prevalent in the aftertaste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with a slightly metallic, lingering finish. JoeMcPhee (9519) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Cask at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy deep amber beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is soft and lightly earthy. A bit of orange marmalade, toast and sweetish UK malts. A bit of soft fruitiness in the nose as well. Very British with a soft saltiness to the malt character. It isn’t really all that good. A bit of dustiness and a lightly cardboardy oxidized notes. Meh.
