COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
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. Organic Target hops deliver a shamelessly fresh perfume, whilst late hopping with organic Goldings and fermentation by our Brakspear yeasts give Brakspear Oxford Gold a fabulous, fruity finish.

FatPhil (16635) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2017
Draught (White Horse, Oxford)
Citrussy hops in the aroma, fruity and sweet from the malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Pretty unexceptional pale bitter, but does have some character, not dumbed down or mediocre. Lovely citrussy finish, but with a wooly bitterness too. Nice one.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at Ye Old Elm Tree, Durham, £2.85/pint. Honey coloured with thin but smooth off-white head. Pleasant malty, citrus zest aroma. Taste is citrus sweetness on a smooth palate balanced by slightly dry finish. A little overly sweet so I wouldn’t session on it but pretty enjoyable.
