Oblivion has a strong spiced fruit aroma, with a rich malt and full on fruit flavour, which lingers on in almost boundless bitter finish.

[email protected] amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is spices, wood, mild liquorice as well as some mild herbal notes. Flavour is quite much the same with some rather strong notes of juniper.

Pigs Ear. Clear brown beer. Residual white head. Dry palate, low carbonation. Tiny bit of toffee malt. Well integrated dried fruit hop. Tangy and fresh. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2007. As it seems to be always with me, I have an Oakham beer as the first beer of a festival and almost always ends up being beer of the festival for me. Does this one? Not sure yet. Deep chestnut colour with lasting bubbly beige head. Trademark grapefruit. Unbelievably hoppy for a British beer. Good toffeeish malt. Nice mixed finish. Grapefruit leafyness is lovely. Great resiny pine throughout.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale festival 2010)
6 odd aroma, sweet malts, sticky hops
4 deep red, tiny head
7+ big caramel base, huge fruity hops. Some freezer ice retronasals.
4 finish so fruity and sticky, some ginger, loads of citrus. Long finish bitingly throbbingly bitter.
14+ BANG - what a smack in the chops this is! maybe too sweet. Couldn’t session it
Rerate of (7:4:7:4:14=3.6) Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Rich reddy brown, small persistent foamy head. Beautiful hoppy aroma despite being served cold. Both fruity aromatic hops and more traditional bitter ones. Full-bodied, smooth palate. Gingery and fruity hoppy retronasals. Big bitter finish. Drying and resiny, lasting for a long time. Quite well balanced. Perhaps the hops are a touch too dominant and aggressive - over-egged, one might say - so misses out on the wow factor.

Scopey (14498) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Cask at The George, Croydon. Doesn’t look like this one has been around for a while! It pours clear rich mahogany brown with a thick white head. The aroma is rich, wood, leather, fruit cake, raisin, sultana, touch of bubblegum even, light spice and resin. The taste is smooth, wood, leather, brown bread, resin, marmalade, touch of spice, touch of citrus peel and toffee with a dry, wood finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well rounded and drinks rather easy. I am a fan.

imdownthepub (14440) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Festival ’08. Brown beer with white head. Now this is the real deal for me, with Oakham you are going to get the hops and this has enough to be an IPA, leafy, fresh, peppery with an oily perfume character. Then there is bitterness and grapefruit citrus notes bouncing around over the rich caramel body. This is a great beer in my book, I loved it.

mR_fr0g (11894) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Cask at the Peterborough beer festival 27/08/2016. A clear dark amber copper coloured pour with a a laying loose off white head. Aroma is rustic toffee, tangy green apple, raisin, brambles, grassy. Flavour is composed of toffee malts, caramel, brambles and English hedgerow hop, little jammy fruits, raw grains. Palate is medium full bodied, sticky, grainy tannin, good cask condition yup. Good one.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2010
Cask at Gallows Bird XIII Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland.
Dark clear brown colour with tiny off-white head. Bitter hoppy aroma. Darkish fruity bitter dry hoppy flavour with grapefruits. Dry hoppy aftertaste.

leaparsons (10496) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2005
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Mahogony in colour with a small head. Aromas are toffee malts, berries and lots of floral and spicy hops. Very flowery. Flavours are toffee base malts beneath lots of addictive hops. Also has some fruit. Very dry and bitter towards the finish with more bitterness on the aftertaste. Quite full in the mouth. Very nice.
