West Oxford Beer Festival, 18 June 2011

List of Ales


At WOBFest, we want too keep our "beer miles" to a minimum, so for our first festival we selected a range of local ales.

The Oxford Branch of CAMRA defines beer brewed within a 30 mile radius as being "local".

Our ales were chosen by local residents acting as beer sponsors.

The final list was as follows:

"Best in Fest", as voted by our drinkers!
Mid-brown in colour with a well rounded bitterness. Full-flavoured with a floral aftertaste.

Baltic Night Stout Compass Brewery, Oxford

A stout with a well balanced roasted bitterness as well as a hoppy aroma. The high percentage of roasted barley gives it a hint of coffee and a long dry cocoa finish.

Hoppy and well balanced without being sweet.
