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.

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 (593) - 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 (391) - 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.

johndoughty (3859) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
One of my rare cask ratings. Tried when my wife Glenys was driving. Golden and served quite cold from a hand pump. Gentle bitterness that gradually started to dominate and resulted in a quite bitter finish. Tried at a Marstons owned pub so it was probably the best beer on tap.

Beerheart65 (957) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Golden cloudy beer with white head bout 2 finger. Hoppy aroma is nicely fresh with citrus and pine, malting under this seems to have bit caramel. Crisp feel, good balance with hoppyness and malting, this is bit cold as I drink so malting stands up more as it gets warmer, medium long malty finish. Nice one.
