3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Dispensary, Liverpool. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to be quite thinnish in character, some bitterness and a light grassy note. A touch disappointing.

Keg at the Cardinals Hat, Lincoln. Deep golden colour with a big white head. Aroma has fruit and berries, grapefruit, taste is mid bitter to bitter finish. Certainly more like on IPA than a bitter.

Listed as a bitter, tastes more like a hopped up IPA, aroma described by my other half as like rat urine. Tastes better!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Furnace Inn (Derby)
With a name like that I had to give this one a try. For the low risk cost of £2.00 I soon had a half pint to sample. The result was an excellent American style IPA that was very drinkable. There are very few bad options at the Furnace Inn.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden carbonated base bubbles with a sparkling texture. Like a bright champagne it bubbles away though the stiff white head is different than a brut. Fresh lemons, roses, peaches, and white grapes are both fruity and sweet at the same time.
Flavor / Palate - Peaches, lemons, and roses start the taste profile with a bang. Bright and hoppy almost immediately it sticks the throat. The malts, while not overpowering, do bring it a great balance. I would drink this more often if I had to spend more time overseas as it is almost like a taste of home in UK soil.
