imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Eureka, my closest pub has become beer heaven, 9 Real Ales along the bar with plenty of interesting bottles as well, a 10 minute stroll away!! This is an orange amber beer with chunky head, dry body to the beer with earthy cereal notes. Thirst quenching, light beer, very pleasant.
