Contained in a nice bottle with a little beer logo which is also on the bottle top, Oxford Gold is brewed using Target and Golding hops to give it a fruity flavour. It has a history of winning awards, it won an Organic Food award in 2003 and has the Soil Association Organic Standard logo too.
I loved taking the top of the bottle off, it popped off with a fizz, but I was slightly worried it might be gassy. It wasn’t however, compared to the other ales I tried it was actually heavier and more full-bodied which was a nice change but I prefer a lighter ale personally. And there was a little aftertaste, but not a bad one, I would say it was more flavoursome than other beers if that’s your thing.
