Shiny Brewery Award IPA (6%)

AwardWholly unremarkable.
That was my initial though on taking a swig of Award (and it’s always dangerous to call your product something like that).
Shiny Brewery is based at The Furnace Inn in Derby and this is my first experience of their beer.
It’s alright, drinkable, but I won’t be rushing back for more.
Pouring a rich gold, the aroma is a very light waft of honey and hay bales.
The malting is dry crunchy biscuits and a little toffee with just a pinch of salt on the side, and the hops provide a decent enough bitter tang, but there’s no real flavour to them as such, save for a homogenous leafy thing.
The finish is dry and bitter and the alcohol is well hidden, but there’s a not too pleasant cabbage fug lurking around in the aftertaste that doesn’t make me want to reach for my glass.
