A golden beer bursting with grapefruit, lemon, apple and rose characters.
Our Brewing Director John Bryan has been visiting the Slovenian hop fields regularly for more than 10 years now and is really excited about the varieties that Slovenian growers are producing. Dragon is one of the best of this new wave of Slovenian hops and our single hop cask aged beer displays its qualities to full effect.
Our Cask Aged beers see a lot of our brewers’ time, care and attention. The process starts with great beer being made and fermented in the usual Oakham way, then at the end of the initial fermentation we remove the tired yeast cells from the beer and introduce fresh yeast to complete the fermentation – the process known as krausening. The beer is then racked in casks and cellared like a fine wine to allow flavours and conditioning to develop. All of our cask aged beers are aged for at least 6 weeks – usually for much longer.
