"The Oxfordshire Beer"
Previously sub-titled "Organic Beer"
Ingredients: Pale & Crystal malts; Styrian Golding, Golding, Fuggle and Admiral hops
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 honeyíd wrap.

Working my way through the aldi ale section. This has been the best yet. Couldnít get much aroma from it, good fruity flavour with a bitter finish. Pretty good one from Marston.

April, 2009. Oxford Gold Good initial hop bite, tasty orange hued malt. Good condition. This is a tasty Brakspear bitter - nothing exceptional, but nicely done - quite dry, refreshing, well made and tasty. Does the job. [3.3]
Jan, 2015 Pleasant beer. Clean and sweet with some delicate integrated hops. A good best bitter, nicely straddling the gap between a session and a premium bitter. Very drinkable. [3.0]

Bready and grassy aroma of mediocre intensity. Weak bitter taste, light citric and grassy notes. Not a bitter...

beeebon (399) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Pours a light clear amber with bubbly white head. Aroma is lemon, a touch of honey, toffee, grassy and biscuit. Taste is medium sweet and bitter, rather carbonated in the mouth but over all a decent above average bitter.
