COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

Colour: Straw
Style: The intention of the hop character is to be pronounced but not all encompassing, dry but not overtly bitter and a tiny hint of sweetness to add body. Its one of the most expensive of the Salopian beers to brew as it relies heavily on expensive hops from the US.
History: The creation of Oracle came about because of the employment of a new member of staff and a trip to a local pub. Jake Douglas joined the brewery in early 2008 having spent a decade at a brewery synonymous with hoppy beers; a promise was made early on to brew a beer to his taste. The trip to the pub was to try a beer of this style. The ambition was to create a balanced low gravity golden beer with a striking hop character. After a period of test brews Oracle was born.

jookos (5987) - FINLAND - SEP 29, 2015
[email protected] Light golden, sort of pee- coloured. Pale malts, cotrys, green yellow berries. Light refreshing body. Good bitters, reslly hoppy citrus flavour. But oh so refreshing. It is well bittered, but otherwise could drink liters of it, as a pineapple juice substitute.

[email protected] 2015, London - pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is medium sweet fruity and pale malty, some pleasing citrus lemon and satsuma notes, hay, grassy and floral hoppy nuances abound, refreshing and easy drinking, this didnt last long and this at last completes all English counties for me! :-)

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Cask from The White Lion, Disley, Cheshire, 3.10/pint. Pale amber beer with the slightest hint of carbonation and small but creamy white head. Looks good. Nose is pleasant and laden with tropical fruit namely lychee, peach and mango. Taste opens bitter with slight earthy skunkiness. Id bet good money theres citra hops in this. Some honey and orange sweetness to the later flavour but a largely dry finish. Really enjoyable - manages to be overtly fruity without being overly delicate which is a hard balance to strike.
