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.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2005
Cask condioned, GBBF 2005: Tastes of asparagus. Vegetables don’t do no good in beer in my opinion. Burnt taste, not very pleasant.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2005
Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London .
Bullion gold body, medium sized, fluffy beige head. Strong bitter aroma. Silky, slightly oily texture and mouth feel. Strong bitter flavour with exceptional length and clarity. Yum.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), GBBF, August 2005. Golden colour. Distinctly hoppy, but more in the style of a session bitter than a golden ale. More earthy than flowery, although there are some light citrus notes. Plenty of bitterness and just a hint of soft malt. A good quaffer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Mild, creamy, malt-forward aroma with some herbal hops and light fruity esters apparent. Clear dark blonde with low white head that recedes to very slight ring. Biscuity malts with plenty of caramel and a bitterness that seems initially low but builds throughout. Medium-light body is quite dry with fair carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Cask conditioned and handpulled at the VAT & Fiddle, Nottingham. The epitome of summer session bitter drinking. Clear amber brown body, thin creamy head, caramel tang on a creamy palate with creeping bitterness towards the end/.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2005
Cask@GBBF 2005. Golden beer with a light fruity aroma and a dry fruity flavour with a caramel finish. Overall a plain dry and fruity effort.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2005
Cask @ GBBF 2005: Golden coloured. Clear. Fruity and smooth sweet aroma. Is buttery and sweet with a light herbal/hoppy touch. Is light bitter in the end. Find this quite ordinary.

leaparsons (8089) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2005
Cask, GBBF 05. Golden/orange with a small head. Aromas are pear, kiwi, apricot and citrus - zesty with caramel malts, spices and herbs, lots going on. Flavours are soft buttery malts with lots of fruit. Bitter sweet hops finish this beer off nicely. All this flavour from a 3.7%er.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2005
Cask @ The Rock of Gibraltar, Oxon, UK Backlog 21 Oct 2004
The pumpclip jumped at me as I opened the door to the pub, begging me...no, demanding me to drink. So... Thank you, pumpclip! What a great beer. And that as the first from a brand new brewery! What will become of this? It is a very refreshing and hoppy beer. Still full bodied and sweet. And a bit malty too.
