COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

rosenbergh (6554) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2011
Cask at the Royal Blenheim, Oxford, England.
Deep golden colour with small white head. Salty watery aroma. Flavour is very mild floral and fruity hoppy. Watery. I don’t know what’s wrong with this but it’s not the same nectar rated before. Watery and flavourless. Probably needs another go sometime.

BeerViking (2307) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Golden and bright, with a fine white head. Aroma is crisp and hoppy. Bitter and dry on the palate but with a firm underlying fruity malt. Dry bitter finish. An excellent session bitter, reminiscent of Young’s Ordinary when it was good.
