Cask @ Grand Central, Fallowfield. Lovely light golden colour with thin white head leaving decent lacing. Fruity malty aroma. Slightly sweet initially it leads to a long, bitter finish. Its light palate would make it an ideal summer beer - typically I sampled it in the bloody winter.

spacecube (1483) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
500ml bottle, pours clear gold, small white head. Aroma is caramel and straw malts, wet cardboard, light lemony citrus, floral hop. Light bodied, thin texture, some malt sweetness and the finish is long and bitter, a bit messy. Carbonation is soft.

JohnRMurdoch (3975) - 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 (959) - 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 (1542) - 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.
