Lonick (1827) - Edinburgh, - JAN 30, 2012
Bow Bar Edinburgh tap half pint, what was the point? A beer so inoffensive it was offensive. Nothing, it looks good, on looks alone it puts up a good fight, then dies a painful death with no taste, NOTHING. Ill say it again, NOTHING i will never drink this again.

blueruin (60) - - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle from beerbods, opened and rested for 5 mins before drinking as recommended. Pours a large, lasting very foamy head, high apparent carbonation. Not much aroma, and not a great deal of taste either - inoffensive, more like a light bitter than a pale ale - not much of the promised frutiness coming through. Some soft bready malt and a soapy light bitter finish. Its not awful, just a bit nothing-y, which is pretty bad in its own way.

MrTipple (4509) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Grain and cereal malts, grassy, floral hops. Clear gold, tiny, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More bitter grass, floral hops, soft carbonation, light bodied. OK Golden Ale, nothing too spectacular. Cask at CBC Islington tasting - thanks to the unknown donor.

The_Osprey (7824) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
April 2017 - Cask handpull at CBC Islington. As Saltaire South Island Pale. Golden orange, still with a bubbly white head. Aroma is airy and light, some biscuity sugars and faint fruit vibes that could equally be coming from a piece of fruit across the room. Airy and nothingy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is straw, thin biscuity malts, watery squash with a light astringency in the finish. Saltaire can do a lot better than this. (3.0)

Cask at CBC Islington, 26/04/17. Pale golden blonde with a decent off white covering. Nose is citric peel, pale malts, lemon rind, straw, grains. Taste comprises lemon rind, tangerine, soft bread, toasted grains, orange peel, hint floral. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Ok golde.

Bottle from keelham near Skipton. I didnt get a lot on the nose, it poured a bronze colour. Tastes coppery, harsh for its low percentage. Disappointed.
