The_Osprey (7401) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as Tring Side Pocket for a Toad. Golden orange, pretty clear, still with a foamy white head which leaves thick lacing. Aroma is socks, breadcrusts, cushion cover and talc. Body is rounded and full with soft carbonation. Taste has biscuity, papery malts balanced with some light lemon citrus and a dusty bitterness. Creamy, effortlessly drinkable and well balanced. A great example of the style on this showing.

Cimbasso (868) - - MAR 25, 2016
Sampled on draught at the Grand Junction Arms, a canal-side pub in Tring. A light amber colour with a good white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is light, hoppy and refreshing. The sweet maltiness is well balanced by the dryness of the hop flavours. Lots of taste considering the low ABV. A great lunchtime pint.
