"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 honey’d wrap.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
500mL bottle purchased from LCBO. Consumed late January with a Feb 28, 2008 best before date. Pours a lovely cloudy light gold. A faint English hop aroma can be found on the nose, as it is on the palate. The mouthfeel is a bit thin at first, but ends up with a rounded hop bitterness, albeit a bit restrained.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2008
I’ve never had a bad Brakspear beer, but other than Triple, I haven’t had any remarkable ones either. This is much the same: well-balanced, nice floral aroma, pleasant fruit flavour. Just nothing to write home about. I wouldn’t order it in a pub, because I’d be looking for something more exciting.

Smells strongly of citrus. Pours a merky orange tint. Mild tangy taste. Tastes simular to an IPA I had at a brew pub in Halifax . Tastes some what roasted and craft brewed. Full enough taste to be buyable but chances are I wont be rushing to the store for more of this soon.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2008
Aroma starts of with nice resiny hops but also some apricot or peach and a strangely lagerlike quality. Grainy or dishwashery perhaps... Flavour is mostly malts, a bit sweet really, with little of the hops promised by the aroma. Odd but not bad. Not very interesting either when you’re past the aroma.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Deep gold colour with a very light haze. Small, foamy, white head. The aroma is light overall with notes of apple pie, pecans (with shells) and grape skins over a base of cookies, oats and dough. Very sharp from the grape skins, almost medicinal. The flavour is similarly pointy, nearly astringent, with lots of grape skins. Lightly sweet in the mouth with a moderately bitter finish. Aftertaste of orange blossom honey and grains. Light to medium bodied with a watery texture and delicate carbonation. It looks nice and the mouthfeel is alright, but it’s all kinds of sharp and astringent. 50cl bottle, bbe 20/06/08.

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2008
Slightly hazy amber hue, with a creamy white head, leaving laces, wet pale malt nose, with a floral hop fruitiness of peaches, tangerines and oranges, a faint honey note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, wet grainy pale malt, a citrus flowery hop leafiness, with some faint fruity, lemony, peachy notes, with a subtle cedary accent, leading towards a citrusy, leafy, hop bittering finish.
