Consumed from a bottle. Described on the label as an american pale ale with cascade hops primarily used for flavour.
Pours a golden-amber colour with light carbonation. Small head that disipates quite rapidly. Malty aroma with some hops. Pleasant but not overwhelming.
The taste is suprisingly bitter; a nice balance of the hops and malt. A lingering floweriness on the palate with undertones of grain. Smooth mouthfeel.
A rather nice tipple - I could imagine enjoying several of these one after the other. The hops come through but not too bitter - would be great on a warm day.

500ml bottle bought from The Vineyard, Belfast...
Poured a hazy light coppery colour... White head poured big, foamy and meringue like and a lot of small carbonation bubbles maintained a decent coating throughout... some good patchy lacing...
Aroma - Quite a lot of juicy and spicy fruits (grapefruits, pears, apricots), light biscuity malts, strong grassy and citrusy hops, wet hay notes, light caramel sweetness, some herbal traces, sea salt, light vegetal notes, some sweet graininess...
Taste - Quite a lot of grassy and peppery hop bitterness, tart fruits (grapefruits, sour apples, lemons), pear drops, very little sweetness - just a little floral honey, salty, light rubbery traces, some faint, overcooked veg notes, chalky traces...
Feel - Pretty sharp and dry... light bodied... very refreshing and quaffable at 4.8%
Overall - A very good pale ale - nothing mind blowing but pretty damn drinkable... definitely worth a try...

Lively pale gold with creamy white head that doesn't last long - distressingly lager-like looks.
Floral and pine forest floor nose with some honey biscuit.
Butter cookie Maris Otter up front with orange oil and pine needle hops late.
Nectar finish and long pine tar bitter linger.
Light but clingy and oily, crisp, quite salty.
I walked past this a few times because who needs another taste of Cascade? If they'd said Centennial in the title I'd have paid more attention. And I should have: this is an oily, well-hopped APA that almost needs more than the 8% wheat and 5% crystal the label indicates for balance, especially with the hardened water they mention. Certainly more bitter than many English IPAs I've had. It loses a bit in drinkability, but not much.
Saltaire is not always good, but they are always worth trying.

Tasted by a pint at the Swim Inn, a JDW pub in Sheffield, on 08/08/2007. Served by a handpump fitted w/ a sparkler.
A: amber hue, w/ a thin but very creamy white frothy head that leaves tight lacing behind, on top of low carbonation.
S: juicy nectar springs to mind, on top of grapefruity citrus-ness, rich flowery scent (typical of American hops), and syrupy&caramely maltiness. Quite aormatic in hoppyness yet along with a sound malt backbone. A tad sweet overall, though.
T: semi-oily, bitter-sweet flowery and nectar-ish flavour comes before plentiful juicy lychee fruitiness of Cascade hops expands... turning quite chewy, slightly spicy, and extensively bitter, which leaves a good impact like cutting deep down the palate... lingering bitter-sweet aftertaste full of hops and caramely malts' aroma.
M&D: almost full-bodied, the mouthfeel is refreshing enough, supported by lots of creamy soft carbonation. Overall, this is a (less potent) American style pale ale made in Yorkshire, with a more English malty theme and utterly enjoyable bitter aftertaste. This is one of the better ales of Saltaire, me think, although it's hard to pinpoint which style it should belong to: an English IPA or an APA? Or simply a premium ale using American hop varieties?
