The_Osprey (6574) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Loddon Bamboozle, 4.8%. Golden yellow, clear, still, small bubbly beige head. Aroma is lemon biscuits, custard creams. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is thin cereals, light honeyish malt, straw, some wine gums with a grassy finish. It’s pretty good but definitely a ’first of the night’ beer. It’s pretty subtle so if you had this after a bitter you wouldn’t be able to taste it. Could drink a lot of this.

Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours lear yellow with a tight, creamy white cap. Bright, juicy citrus in the nose, mellow doughy pale malts.
