Beer5000 (6136) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2017
Cask @ The Masque Haunt, Old Street, London. Clear golden body with a nice white head. Mild but pleasant aroma of malt and light fruity hop. Flavor is smooth malt with mild fruit and moderate bitterness. Balanced body and OK aftertaste. A pretty smooth and soft ale that suits the cask.

The_Osprey (7174) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys, London as Oakham Inferno. Golden orange, totally clear and still with a diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is lemon boiled sweets, elderflower, some soap. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is lemonade and elderflower, white rose petals, assertive dusty astringency builds. A tasty hoppy golden ale but maybe a touch too astringent, reducing drinkability.

Draft at Old Manor in Bracknell. Zesty, bitter and dry, yet still refreshing. Not the most fragrant of beers but smells quite nice. Fair body for a relatively weak beer.

mR_fr0g (10403) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Cask at the brewery tap, Peterborough. A mostly clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting soft white head. Aroma is soft bready malts, cereal straw and faint leafy citrus hop. Flavour is composed of rounded soft pale bready malts, lemon, slightly grassy. Palate is superb, mellow, easy going and perfect cask condition. Assertive clean hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Vladivostok (462) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Very much like other Oakham beers Ive tried; thin, pale, citrusy. Not my bag.

Cuso (8114) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2016
Lost rating from notes. Cambridge 2013. Clear deep yellow color with a nice white head. Malty, fruity, hoppy aroma. Moderate sweet malty taste with some fruits and light hoppy bitterness in finish. Good.

mabuzzer (660) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Cask in the Architect, Cambridge. Clear and very pale yellow with a white head. Lemon aroma, taste is dominated by citrus hops. Bit thin, perhaps, and definitely very pale, but rather nice

theprof (632) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Cask at the Falcon. Pours pale gold with thin top. Floral scents of citrus. Tastes of pine woods and grasses. A resinous palate with some light hints of biscuit. On a cold winters night with a fire opposite its almost nostalgic of summers gone. Good but it will never persuade me to switch allegiance from the darker brews. Put less diplomatically an American ale imperfectly reconstructed
