JohnRMurdoch (3514) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2015
500ml bottle from BeerRitz. Orange Amber brown, not much head. Resin grain aroma. Sweet biscuit and tropical fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Fairly standard bitter / golden ale hybrid.

Towey1989 (124) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with bubbly white head. Aromas of grass and brambles with a little spice and caramel. Tastes of biscuit, caramel and malt. Medium carbonation, light bodied and a citrusy, malty aftertaste. Ok but little disappointing.

StueyD (1305) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hoppy aroma, some fruit and a hint of spicy, plus a background pale malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A mild bitter hop taste, some citrus fruit and a light peppery spice with a hint of oak wood. There is a biscuity malt flavour that brings a sweetish, caramel, Malted Milk like flavour that balances the flavour in the finish.

Pretty bad. Looks alright, though no head. Aroma quite unpleasant - brambles and spices. Like a park where dogs wee. Taste is watery and brambles. Maybe something wrong with it? On special offer in Booths - a rare bad one from them. I think I’ll avoid Saltaire in future as so many good brewers out there.

Pours a blonde colour, taste is delicate and well balanced. Quite drinkable , but nothing to excite the palate

Have drunk this both on draft in pub and in bottle - the bottled version is just unpleasant, gassy with a strange after taste

HampshirePhil (185) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
500ml bottle - Light amber ale with light froth head (quick to go), smooth light taste but without any real body behind it. Pleasant season drink but not exceptional.

niquillis (1290) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
On cask at Bulls Head Inn, Baildon. Pours very hazy blonde and took an age to settle. Probably sparklered to death. A dry blonde, Ok but there’s better around.

Fluxing (433) - POLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Z pompy, The Royal Oak, Ripon. Kolor zloty, idealnie klarowne. Piana od poczatku jest niska, szybko opada, zostawia jedynie cieniutka obraczke i nie oblepia szkla, slabo. W aromacie dominuja slodkie zboza i chlebowosc, do tego srednio intensywna nuta trawiastego, ziolowego i lekko owocowego chmielu. Bardzo czysty profil aromatyczny, wrecz lagerowy. W smaku intensywnie zbozowe, lekko kwaskowate, bardzo rzeskie i odswiezajace, wlasnie dzieki temu kwaskowi. Bardzo przypomina niemieckiego pilsa. W odczuciu polwytrawne, lekkie, bardzo rzeskie i pijalne, na lato idealne. Goryczka srednia, mocno lodygowa i sciagajaca, dalej ziola, trawa i lekkie owoce. Wysycenie niskie.
