I used to love coming to the beer festivals here, but for some reason have slipped out of the habit. Part of the joy of this pub is its remoteness, and I enjoyed walking a new route through Knebworth Park from Stevenage railway station. Around 20 festival beers available.
Two by Two - Leap Frog Pale Ale4.10ExcellentGolden in colour. Very fruity hop flavours including the ever-popular citrus tastes and peach too.
Leighton Buzzard - Ninja4.30ExcellentPale gold in colour. Dry. Citrus hop flavours. Selling very well at the festival.
Papworth - Half Nelson4.10ExcellentAn amber-coloured IPA with Wakatu hops from New Zealand. Fresh and zesty.
Gloucester - Mosaic4.00ExcellentA hazy pale gold. Full-on, fruity Mosaic hop hit. Best beer of the day.
Bond Brews - Railway Porter4.50GoodA fruity, brown Porter with a chocolaty finish.
Hadham - 18ct Gold3.70GoodA Golden Ale; well-hopped with English hop varieties.
Farr Brew - Golden4.10GoodA well-balanced Golden Ale with a bitter finish.
