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.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Cask gravity at Catford BF 06. Hazy gold with thin white head. Maybe coming to the end. Interesting tea hop aroma. Quite earthy in mouth with harsh muddy hop on end.

Nice golden session bitter.
