Brakspear beers are always a solid bet and you can easily pick them in most supermarkets. The most recent one I’ve been drinking is Oxford Gold a golden ale that in the bottle comes in at 4.6%.
The label isn’t the most exciting in the world but it is distinctly Brakspear. Unsurprisingly the look of the beer is golden and the aroma is lightly fragrant and citrusy.
The taste is very nicely balanced, refreshing and easy to drink, as well as a distinct note of honey. Overall it is a very solid beer and I have a few of these stored away for any occasion.
