Brakspear – Oxford Gold

WP_20160718_09_29_09_ProWhat they say: “Oxford Gold has a citrusy flavour with a fresh and zesty fruity finish. This pale ale has a gold, glittery glisten with crystal malts to enhance the body of the beer. The fresh aroma is contributed by a selective blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Styrian hops. Oxford Gold is the perfect accompaniment for fish, chicken and salad dishes.”

Have had this a number of times as it often crops up in assorted boxes from supermarkets. A nice summer ale and as it was – unbelievably – a warm summers day when I drank it, it went down well, although being a golden, not my favourite. 4.6% A.B.V August 2016.
