The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as Burton Bridge Festival Ale, 5.5%. Amber orange, pretty clear and still with a foamy grey white head. Aroma is apple pie, toffee apple and underripe banana. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is peppery, spiced apple pie, woody bitterness set against apple, dissolved sugars and straw. Building astringency and a little green. An interesting half pint but a full one might be more difficult. (6-4-6-3-14=3.3)
