Oxford Gold, at 4.6% ABV, is a premium craft brewed beer produced using a blend of English and continental hops and fermented with unique Brakspear yeast. More than 200 years of brewing tradition are reflected in this unchallenging flavoursome beer, says the brewer.

The judges at the awards were so impressed with Oxford Gold that some felt they could enjoy a few more pints. Plaudits from the panel included comments stating that it was “a good bittersweet beer with a yeasty combination” and that the ale “would be great for a hot summer day in England”.
