The_Osprey (3485) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Cask at Drafthouse. Hazy opaque dark mustard yellow, small white ring of head. Aroma is mostly vinegar, medicinal, lemon tart. Body is medium, low carbonation, smooth. Taste … doesn’t have much really, watery, roughly follows the aroma, touch of cider .... not good ... pretty piss poor actually. Infected cask? Barman wasn’t sure but gave me a different beer anyway.
