DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2011
The Baron, 21/05/11 and 22/05/11. Pale dusted gold with a fine white collar lacing intricately. Fresh rubbed hopcone citrus on nose; mouldering tangerine and musky resins. Bright tangerine hop balanced with wafers and honey, peanut oiliness and husk. Dribble of lychee as it warms. Clean and highly sessionable with glimpses of excellence.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Managed to grab this and get a prime spot by a big picture window, watching the workers hustle home after another 8 hours of their lives had disappeared, just like mine, and then I relaxed. There is a good hop impact on a light, fruity, malty body, some sharp grapefruit zest, tangy and refreshing, the perfect beer to unwind with. The grind had finished for another day and I got transported to a better place just by drinking a beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 25/04/09. Golden in colour with next to no head. Sweetish malt aroma with some hay and grassy hops. Flavour was much the same, leading to a decent bitter finish. A solid effort by Saltaire.
