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.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at Ye Old Elm Tree, Durham, £2.85/pint. Honey coloured with thin but smooth off-white head. Pleasant malty, citrus zest aroma. Taste is citrus sweetness on a smooth palate balanced by slightly dry finish. A little overly sweet so I wouldn’t session on it but pretty enjoyable.
