tombyars (1770) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Tasted this in The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in May 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong zesty lemon drops in the long aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong fruit base with pink grapefruit, kiwi, honeydew melon and mango, also a tad of burnt toffee present. Dry floral hop resins compliment the malt well with citrusy notes. Finish is sweet, slightly dry with pink grapefruit present. Another nice Golden Ale to add to the quality portfolio. Worth seeking out.

Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Clear gold with a good dense white head in magnificent nic. Oakham through and through with dry citrus fruits from the centennial hops tantalysing my tastebuds. I can’t keep away from my local when I know that beer like this is on.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Racehorse Northampton (not a Spoons) A lovely bright gold coloured beer with an off white head. A nice hoppy citrus aroma with grapefruit notes. A delicious balance in the mouth of beautiful Centennial hops and a good malt backbone. Lovely citricity, grapefuit and pineapple and lemon. Top drawer as expected.

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 26/04/09. Pale gold in colour, no head. Big hoppy aroma and flavour, with plenty of grapefruit, a touch of balancing sweetness and a razor sharp dry finish. Excellent.

3.9
imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold, no head, quite still. Whilst the appearance wasn’t great, the flavour is very pleasant, very hoppy, spicy, tangy lemon, grapefruit. Tidily crisp and bitter, really very good as you tend to expect from Oakham.
