Oxford Class Ale

Beer score: 6.7
Web site: Heavy Seas Beer
The Oxford Brewing Company brewed this stuff when I tasted it, but they're no longer around. They got bought out by the Clipper City brewing folks which then became Heavy Seas Beer. So, lots of changes, and I believe this particular brew is no longer on the market. But oh boy did it have some flavor! A little harsh going down. That bitter flavor is pretty strong for a drink that's not a porter or a stout or even a black and tan. Still, quite enjoyable. I could easily spend an afternoon hoisting a few of these to my lips. The bitterness doesn't really lessen as you drink more, but at least you become a little more used to it.
