NOTE: The pump clip has the word "Oxfordshire" in small letters above the word "Bitter" but the brewery does not refer to the beer as Oxfordshire bitter on its website.
Deep in the vale of the White Horse tradition is being kept alive. Using only the finest ingredients this golden bitter balances locally grown Challenge Hops with Yorkshire malt, to offer the discerning drinker a beer that will stop any horse in its tracks.

Hand-pulled half-pint towards the end of an Oxford pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13: my notes tell me I had this in the Royal Blenheim and it was a bog standard UK session ale. Golden hue to the amber body, thin white head. Slight citrus hint in the nose and taste but otherwise it could have been any of 20 or so such beers, instantly forgettable but thirst quenching enough (not that I had any thirst by the time I was drinking this).

From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and light grapefruity. Bitter, crisp hoppy and light citrusy. Medium dry and citrusy into the finish.

On tap at a cozy little pub. Served with the utmost care from the cask by the bartender. Very good experience with this bitter.

Cuso (5866) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Devonshire Arms, Cambridge .
dark goldne color with small white head. Very weak malty aroma with notes of citrus hops. Watery taste with hint of malt, fruity hops. Disappointment.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts and peppery hops meld in this silky Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the amber-tinged golden.
-The hop character has green edges.
-Orange-y tea leaves are also shared in the aroma.
-The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, creating an elegant quencher of a body.
-The flavour profile is balanced.

On cask at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford.

Great swift half on a hot afternoon. Could very easily be a session beer. Lively, producing a smooth head, clean flavour, slightly floral and grassy.
