Great place bursting with ale drinkers.
Oakham - Scarlet Macaw4.40ExcellentVery drinkable APA.
Oakham - Green Devil IPA6.00ExcellentHop forward modern IPA with sweet lats and a dry bitter finish.
Tempest - Ball Park3.80GoodSomething lacking in this pale ale. Needed a bit more focus, felt rough round the edges. Surprising for a Tempest beer.
