I was worried by the name that this might be one of those undrinkable chilli-flavoured beers, but no, far from it, and what a fantastic surprise.

Very pale yellow colour with a an initial foamy appearance, even from a loose sparkler, which rises to the top giving way to a crystal clear pint. The head diminishes, but stays as a thin layer on the top and clings to the glass as it is drunk.

The aroma has stacks of Elderflower in it, so much so that it reminded me of Cheriton Village Elder, though this one is achieved only with hops and malt, and without the addition of Elderflowers.

Exceptionally powerful hop flavours dominate this beer, with slight citrous tangs. Leaves a very bitter aftertaste on the palate, which if you don't like it, is best removed by taking another sip of it to restore the foretaste.

Absolutely wonderfully.

This seasonal is a Pale gold color which surprised a bit, but head is thick and lacing sticks in thick sheets, very nice visuals. Very inviting citrusy hop aromas, grapefruit is strong. Hoppy grapefruit like taste profile with good balanced malt base, all resulting in a very smooth beer on the taste buds. Creamy mouthfeel add's more positives to this very drinkable and refreshing ale. Oakam is a small brewery that produces killer beers, never had one from them I didn't like, a whole lot!
