Leighton (10970) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2011
Cask at the Old Fountain. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Sweet nose, honey malts, light straw. Nice flavor, not too intense, some easy bitterness, hay and sweet, juicy citrus, some sugary malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, faint grass and straw, nice and light toasted bread and some residual sugars. Very pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Is it me or are Saltaire one of the most overrated breweries in the country?Pale and brilliant with a skim of white. Aroma of shrivelled old lemon zested with a nail file. Light buttered raffia, stale lemon curd tart flavour. Damaged and watery. Don’t like.

Gary (1391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2011
(cask @ The Magpie & Crown ,Brentford). (rating 666, with a Slayer video) The hops have their volume on mute in the nose. Its decent to drink , but the hops again , like the nose are not bold. Mild crispy fruity drynesss,but its measly and withouth balls.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
Half-pint, cask conditioned at The Fox and Newt, Leeds. Lasting, white layer with great lacing to the glass. A slight haze to a golden body. Discreet fruit-floral aroma. Smooth taste profile with fresh fruity hops and a lightly bitter finish (Sunday pub crawl in Leeds, 11.07.2010).

Cask. Poured a good clean yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is very hoppy with loads of fruit. The flavor is sweet, and full of citrus in the taste. A very good refreshing beer.
