The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys, London. As Nelson Nelsons Blood. Hazy brick red, pretty much opaque, still, foamy tan head. Aroma is airy, light fruits, plum. Body is smooth, quite light, tingly carbonation. Taste is red berry, rhubarb crumble, some resin, light raspberry, fig biscuit. Fruity in a seemingly deliberate way, rather than a tart, dodgy condition way. Dries out quite nicely in the finish. Overall, its not one Id come to on a regular basis but its interesting.

Clitheroe Beer Festival 2015. Dark copper coloured. Nutty in both aroma and taste. Full-bodied and its strength is not overbearing at all.
