Cask; Special - April 2009.
Packed with traditional English ingredients. This 4.2% beer is a smooth ale with a subtle bitterness from Progress, First Gold, Goldings and Northdown hops.

Cask (gravity) at the Hop Pole Easter beer festival 2009, Aylesbury. From the name, I was expecting something Germanic in style. In fact, it sounds like one of those ghastly fake German UK lagers that were popular for a time years ago - Grunhalle from Greenall Whitley springs to mind. Anyway, I digress - turns out Brunhalle is actually the old name for Brill, the village where the brewery is based. Lovely clear bronze colour. Loose white head. Quite biscuity aroma - some cereal. Firm dry mouthfeel. More malty than hoppy. Nice.

Fin (9667) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2009
Cask gravity at The Hop Pole, Easter Beer Festival, Aylesbury, Bucks in the company of Loz, Chris O and Ruth 10-04-09 Pours a classic amber colour, really clear and with a nice white bubbly head. Aroma is fruit laden but with a genrous amount of malt. Taste is a good combination of the aforementioned fruit and malt but there is a nice hoppiness to this. There is a real clackey bitterness with this beer. I even get some light chocolate dustings amongst the fruit. It’s full flavoured, and at times it reminds me of an older style bitter, This is a really good drinker, and another nice beer in the range of monthly specials. Streaks of citrus leach around the mouth tendril like. Good beer and equal favourite of the day, so a good start. A7 A5 F7 P4 Ov14 3.7
