Yorkshire Craft Beer Review: Blonde from Saltaire

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Yorkshire craft beer review is for Blonde from Saltaire Brewery.

Share It!

Saltaire Blonde was a gold bitter. Hoppy, floral finish, metallic tang, faintly orange and orange blossom.

And then if I copy my tasting notes exactly:  "actually I am being lazy. I just need a fucking drink"

And this was true. We had wandered to the edge of Manchester in search of sustenance and beer and google suggested a place called The Angel for both nice snacky things and craft ales.

It is in an area of the city which Bear described as once being Dog Rough but is now becoming gentrified. From the outside The Angel looks like a proper rough boozer. And so we got into a fight because it looked so disappointing and also crowded and I hadn't had food for about seven hours.

But it turned out OK. It was pretty rough and ready but friendly and warm inside and had a large number of guest beer pumps and taps. Food was decent too.
