Hello all and welcome to the beginning of many blogs based on the same day! Instead of travelling to the lovely Thailand in Easter, Steph and I booked a night in the equally lovely Canterbury. While Steph is 8 months pregnant, I have no alcohol restrictions, so I shall be drinking until I find a nice doorway to sleep in. Although most of them seem to be taken...
My first beer of the day is Goose Brewery - Midway IPA at a fantastically old pub just outside the heart of the 'Bury. Even though it was priced extortionately @ £6 a pint, I'm on holiday, so let's spend those Benjamins!
This is the first IPA I have had out of the tap since lockdown and the smell doesn't seem to be as strong as those out of a bottle or a can, but it is slightly fruity with an overpowering flowery smell. Not a great start, as typically I know flowery beers are not for me. It is very fizzy and has, as predicted, a pungent flowery taste which rolls towards a bitter finish.
The flowery IPA must be to many peoples taste, but not mine.
For six quid, this was not to my taste.
Not for me. 2/10
