A truly fabulous ale. Not as light at the JHB but very distinctive. It packs a wonderful flavour and is in my 10 ten this year.Miss it at your peril!

A good refreshing beer and well worth a pint, what we have come to expect from the oakham brewery.

A wonderfully aromatic light hoppy ale. This is so good I had a firkin for christmas. Why dont more pubs stock this? It dosnt get much better than this.

Well, I have to be honest, I had this out of a barrell that some half-wit had moved just minutes before... so it was a bit cloudy to say the least (or should that be yeast?) All things considered it wasn\'t unpleasent and Oakhams do have a good reputation, so i\'ll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Floral nose and initial taste. The sweetness in the flavour fades and the finish is sharper and dryer.

Cask conditioned at the Smithfield, Derby. Golden colour. Lovely citrussy aroma. Complex hoppy, herbal and citrussy flavour. Very good!

Sampled this bitter in the Bon Accord, Glasgow in December 2005. Clear yellow straw in colour with a creamy white head. Intense citric aroma and crisp mouthfeel. Pale malts lead to a fruity lemon and grapefruit flavour with a slight hint of herbs and spices. Dry apple notes with nutmeg in the floral hop resins. A nice bittersweet finish and a better balance of malt and hops in this good session ale.
