COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Brakspear Oxford Gold is a remarkably zesty brew, with fresh, citrussy aromas and a firm, fruity flavour. Pale ale malts provide the beer with its gold-gilt shimmer, spruced by a hatful of crystal malts to give body, texture and a delicate honey’d wrap. Organic Target hops deliver a shamelessly fresh perfume, whilst late hopping with organic Goldings and fermentation by our Brakspear yeasts give Brakspear Oxford Gold a fabulous, fruity finish.

Cask at The Mulberry Leaves, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, some corn and subtle vanilla. Taste of caramel, biscuit, some lemon zest and earthy hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A light malty finish. A bog standard, sweetish, malty bitter. So drinkable though.

Brakspear’s Oxford Gold cask at the Lamb and Flag, Oxford. Very pale gold colour. The aroma is fresh and hoppy. The taste is rather sweet though. It’s light and very easy to drink. Excellent for the summer.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Cask at The Nothe Tavern, Weymouth, enjoyed al-fresco on the deck overlooking the harbour; orangey-gold, white head; taste was bitter orange, nicely tangy, plus biscuity malt and some earthy/flowery hops; dry bitter finish; pleasant, perhaps enhanced by the very pleasant circumstances in which it was drunk.

Marstonlad (544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Cask at the Cape of Good Hope, Oxford. Pours clear golden with a dense medium-sized head. Aroma has a floral and fruity theme with some ripier fruity and malty notes. Initially sweetish taste does not have very much bitterness but displays aromatic hoppiness; mostly fresh fruity flavours. The palate is light to medium bodied, smooth and flat. Decent, easy cask ale.
