"The Oxfordshire Beer"
Previously sub-titled "Organic Beer"
Ingredients: Pale & Crystal malts; Styrian Golding, Golding, Fuggle and Admiral hops
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.

Skinnyviking (9342) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle. Medium high fluffy but lasting white head. Clear amber body. Weak and anonymous barley malt aroma. Flavor also week and watery with only a little fruityness, a little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short sweet and fruity aftertaste. In short: Too little of everything.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
500mL bottle purchased from LCBO. Consumed late January with a Feb 28, 2008 best before date. Pours a lovely cloudy light gold. A faint English hop aroma can be found on the nose, as it is on the palate. The mouthfeel is a bit thin at first, but ends up with a rounded hop bitterness, albeit a bit restrained.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2008
I’ve never had a bad Brakspear beer, but other than Triple, I haven’t had any remarkable ones either. This is much the same: well-balanced, nice floral aroma, pleasant fruit flavour. Just nothing to write home about. I wouldn’t order it in a pub, because I’d be looking for something more exciting.
