"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.

Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy copper with a wispy head. Pleasant aroma - biscuity malt, a hint of caramel, grass & lemon - surprisingly fresh aroma considering how long it sat in the LCBO warehouse. Nice mouthfeel, very soft. Solid and well-balanced flavour, with the Goldings really coming through nicely in the finish. Tasty stuff.

Lubiere (11932) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
A hazy amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light hops, biscuit, and yeast. In mouth, a rather nice crisp malt, yeast, and crisp hops. very English. Some lactic notes develop as beer warms up. Medium bodied. A very good offering from the LCBO.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
500ml bottle, 4.6% a/v Pours a murky amber colour with a thin tan head. The nose is citrus/hops and some pine. The taste is very clean and citrus/pine. There is a note of hops on the aftertaste but not much, medium mouth feel, very nice beer.

probstblueribbon (3496) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2007
500 mL bottle from LCBO (finally!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Murky dirty amber with a small, tight white head. Aroma: A nice noseful of citrus hops and toffee, a bit piney, a bit doughy-yeasty, light fruitiness and spiciness. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly soft carbonation. Flav.: More piney/resinous hops, caramel, some yeast and dough, a bit of bread crust, touches of lemon; lightly astringent with fair bitterness and a light bread finish.

Nice stuff. Glad it finally got to Ottawa!

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2007
Botte, LCBO. Med to dark yellow, medium foamy white head. Mild aroma - slight hops, light malt. Light refreshing taste - zest, yeast, grain, lemon, nice amount of bitterness. Grassy hops. Wish it had come out in the summer as planned, great stuff, still tasting fresh thankfully.

Cloudy amber. Refreshing, clean feel and flavor. Bitter finish. Hint of cinnamon. Not bad at all.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle- Pours orangey amber with a rocky foam cap. Fresh hoppy and grassy aroma, some citrus fruit rind(orange peel), spices (corriander, cardomon). The flavour profile is awash with leafy fresh hops, zesty orange and spices, some sugar (brown sugar). Nice refreshing bitter finish. Good.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2007
Nice little beer..slightly cloudy, surprisingly fresh hop scent and a biscuity malt upfront and a promisingly bitter aftertaste. Very citrussy and light-bodied. Somewhat flat and watery, but it is a session beer. Pleasant.

Cartoonkhaki (1225) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2007
Hazy orange with fluffy white head that renders itself into small lace. Aroma is somewhat musty and dusty. I can pick out a light hop aroma. Flavour is lightly malted with a nice hop bitter on the back of my tongue. Light acidic citrus coming out as well. Nothing is too overpowering and it creates a good balance.
