The beer pours to a fairly deep amber color, clear and the head average in size, frothy in texture and off white in color, the lace is decent enough to cover the glass. Nose has a sweet malt base, the hop quite evident with a sweet start, the top medium in feel. Finish is nicely carbonated with a pleasant hop spicy bite and to end it all a droughty lingering aftertaste, a fine drinking beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Copper in hue w/ good clarity. Moderate off white head leaves wisps of lace. Leafy, earthy, lightly floral Willamette hop nose accompanied by caramel sweetness and prominent biscuit malt. Trace fruity esters are perceptible. Mild hop bitterness upfront quickly yields to medium caramel malt and hints of butterscotch and more biscuit. Earthy hop flavor seems a bit course and raw. Lightly bodied. Finishes with buttery notes and darkly toasted malt ending abruptly. Oxford Class Ale is a no frills pale, being just flavorful enough for decent drinkability. The slight astringency prevented me from enjoying it further.
