Pride of Oxford by Oxfordshire Ales
English Pale Ale
4.20 % ABV

To quench a real thirst, we traditionally brew our golden ale to give a biscuity, fruity character and vibrant juicy refreshment. Pride of Oxford is also brewed to appeal to the younger ale drinker, making a real transition from lager.

500ml bottle, 4.2%abv, with a 168 stamped on the back side of the label.

It pours a hazy light gold with a huge head of foam despite it being served cold. Extreme bubble activity for the first minute or so and then it calms down a bit.

The smell is a mix of bready malt and a citrus bitterness.

The taste is more of a delicate biscuit than bread that tastes fine with the nice mild citrus bitterness. It *can* remind one of a better Euro Lager but I'm happy with it and with the lowish abv, this will go down rather easily.

The mouthfeel is kind of different; with all of the bubble activity and the massive head of foam, I thought it would be over carbonated but in reality, it's rather light with the CO2.

I like this and I'm going to recommend to my retailer friend to pick up some more as I got this and the Marsh-Mellow free and he was using me as his "guinea pig" to see what I thought of them. ;^)
