"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.

JorisPPattyn (9470) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2016
Small yellowish head over faintly veiled orange-copper, lazily carbonated beer. Toasted malts, very, very lightly liqueurish. Good hoppy bitterness, but ending harsher metallic. Some sweetness; bit herbal, citrus (also in the aftertaste). Medium bodied at best, feels better carbonated than it looks. Not bad, nothing special.

Muzzleloader (34) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Pours clear golden/with thick white one-finger foam. Nose is honeyish floral and citrus. Body shows some complexity but is very weak. Bit of a shy bitterness is lost behind hop citrusy. Mouthfeel is quite nice, but somehow watery. Medium carbonation.

Clear copper with thick white head. Toffee, english esters and noble hops. Sweet, dry and crisp finish. A good one!

Enteogenisk (152) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Bottle in wine glass. Doesn?t look all that good when poured. Clear and not very full of life. Aroma is slight as well as the palate. It is refreshing though and the hops are delicately added to make what I?d call a perfect all-round food beer.

Beastmaker (2) - NORWAY - MAY 13, 2016 does not count
Distinct aroma of prunes and wood. Sweet Taste of apples and plums, with medium bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overall a bit disappointing, but not undrinkable. Not my kind of beer

I_LUV_BEER (175) - - MAY 5, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is of citrus, apple and slightly floral. Taste is grapefruit with herbal notes and a pleasant lingering bitter finish. Medium body with medium to lively carbonation. Very nice bitter.

jjsint (2328) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, drunk at home. Mid- to dark gold. Very little smell. Bittersweet taste replete with bitter earthy hop. Nicely carbonated. Average, or maybe just above average at a pinch.
