A golden beer whose aroma is dominated by hops that give characteristic citrus notes. Hops and fruit on the palate are balanced by malt and a bitter base. Dry hoppy finish with soft fruit flavors. A nationally respected ale, winner of numerous awards, JHB is a blond baby packed with flavour & perfect for those long sessions as well as a quick pint at lunchtime. This popular beer was crowned Champion beer of britain in the bitter category in 2001 and 1999.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 A very pale blond bitter with a thin and light head. There are clear hoppy aroma but there is not a strong bitterness, there are various subtle flavours to this beer but none seem to enhance the classic bitter style, instead they mellow the flavour and make this a pleasant hoppy session ale.

Fairly bland ale, not a great deal of citrus notes that I can taste, or much malt backbone.

Pale pour, nice sweet citrussy smell. Quite a thin palate but lovely shandy-esque refreshing taste with fruits and background malts. Superb summer bitter.

Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Luton
Kolor złoty, czysty w 100% klarowny trunek. Piana średnia, biała, opada w dół, słabo znaczy szkło. W aromacie zioła, lekki cytrus, mocna zaparzona herbata, delikatny przypieczony chleb. W smaku słodowe z chlebowymj nutami, poza tym zioła, delikatne herbaciane akcenty. Trochę ściągająca goryczka z cytrusowym tłen. Przrciętne, ale nie ma co marudzić.

Cask at Guildford Arms. Very pale, almost like colored water. Nose is citrus, light dough, light floral. Tastes light bitters, light toasted caramel, doughy malts. Ok.

Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Pours golden with a fading off white head. Aroma of hops and light fruits. Bitter hoppy taste with light citrus flavours and a dry and bitter lasting aftertaste. Some light carbonation. It’s OK, it has flavour, but for me the aftertaste is just too bitter and not refreshing enough. It comes bottom of the pile of all the Oakham beers I’ve tried.

(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2017) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, starch and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were earth, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A rather poor golden ale. Finish was nice.

kajser27 (1922) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2017
Clear, golden colored, small off white head. Aroma is of malt, biscuit, some fruit, herbal grassy and lemony citrus hops. Taste is medium sweet malt and biscuit, moderate lemony, grassy and fruity hops, medium bitterness, dry finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Pretty good. (bottle)

m.mahu (193) - Iasi, ROMANIA - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden. Nose filled with citrusy notes and tea. Tastea a bit of citrus, hay. Bitter, but overall uninspiring.
