Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Coach House Innkeepers Special Reserve’. Dark amber, translucent, still, bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweaty, touches of apple, a touch peachy. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is sugary, berries, resinous, ever so slightly acidic, apple, malt sugars, white bread, thin finish. For all its complexity, it’s just a touch thin. Needs more bitterness.
