Cask at The Hop Pole, Easter Beer Festival, Aylesbury, Bucks in the company of Loz, Chris O and Ruth 10-04-09 This was actually on at the front bar so technically it wasn’t a bona fida Easter Festival Beer. Pours mahogany with an off white head, there are occasional glints of ruby red coming through the body. Tangy, some dark roasted malts, nicely bitter, its fine. A6 A3 F6 P3 Ov12 3.0
