"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.

Ingevara (886) - - JUN 9, 2012
GOlden. Grassy fragrance. Slightly bitter. Rudimentary maltiness, lots of bubbles, average head. Some caramel and toasted sunflowerseeds in the flavor, as well as citrusy fruit and rocket salad. Not bad, but no hit.

jjsint (1957) - 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.

sarauckelman (358) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Clear amber with thin white head. Crisp, clean aroma, can’t really smell the fuggles, though they’re tastable on the finish. Starts off clean and grainy, ends a bit musty and hoppy. Medium bodied.

allmyvinyl (8680) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2016
500ml bottle from Morrisons Pours clay golden with a thick white head. Aromas of butterscotch and lemon. Taste is similar. Thin finish. Dull. £1 though so what can you really expect?

Working my way through the aldi ale section. This has been the best yet. Couldn’t get much aroma from it, good fruity flavour with a bitter finish. Pretty good one from Marston.

LazyPyro (333) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour with a small rapidly disappearing white head. Malty aroma with citrus fruits, hops. Flavour has a hoppy bite, a little citric fruity bitterness, malts. Quite drinkable.

SilkTork (5499) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2016

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]
