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.

500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma: fruity hops, grass, citrus, earthy, biscuity malt. Taste: citrus fruits, grapefruit, earthy, biscuity malt, floral, bitter finish. Light body, little on a thin side but for 4% it’s a decent golden ale.

Floral en nariz. Ligera de cuerpo. En boca cítrica y con un suave final seco. Muy refrescante. Para beber por litros. BOTTLE. BB 08/08/2018

BenOver (329) - SLOVENIA - MAY 11, 2017
Pours golden with a hint of amber discoloration, no top, whatever there is of the head is slightly off-white. Strong hoppy aroma, citrus and lemon grass, a slight sour aromatic hint at the end. Slightly skunky maybe. Texture is oily, has body, low carbonation, almost flat, hoppy kick, gives way to a slightly sweet body, followed by a nice, gentle dry aftertaste. Good job!

Kittysissä real alena. Hieno kukkainen tuoksu, sitruksisen kevyt ja saippuainen suutuntuma.

planky84 (3429) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Cask at the 2017 Manchester Beer Festival. Gold pour with a white head. Vanilla, soft spice and citrus aroma. Shed loads of citrus fruit in the flavour. Refreshing brew.

On cask at the Manchester Beer Festival, pours a clear medium yellow with an off white head. The smell is fairly juicy citrus, floral and delicate. The taste is floral, citrus, pretty juicy with a dry end. Very light in body with nice carbonation. Very pleasant 4.0% beer.
