On cask @ Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Re-invented version, now a "Summer Ale" and a wee bit higher ABV%, much more palatable than Steelmaker v1.0. Nice golden clear body, thick white head. Nose is light malt, soft fruits, peaches and nectarines, with a little bit of grassiness. Body is medium, with a good head retention, with a clean-ish finish. Quite good, and nice in this weather.
