The_Osprey (7728) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Bombardier Burning Gold. Golden yellow, still, clear, foamy white head. Aroma is simple grains, socks, papery, lager. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is pale biscuit, musty rug, dried flowers. A balanced if thin and uninspiring beverage. Can drink this easily enough.
