In praise of Saltaire Cascade Pale Ale

ImageRapidly rising to the top of my list of favourites and the bottom of my glass is the above named  bottled ale. A few bottles on Friday night added to it’s rising status although it did impact on my ability to answer most of the questions on Ian Dury on Mastermind. Fortunately I was sat on my sofa and not in the black chair.

In the warm sunlight of Sunday afternoon as I type this closer inspection of the bottle states that it was awarded the SIBA National Winner in 2010. A worthy choice and one that will no doubt be echoed by many an enthusiast. 

A quick look at the Saltaire Brewery website states that it goes well with: Curry, spicy Asian cuisine, stir fry, and fish and chips. I would add that it goes well with other bottles of the same and a bag of Seabrooks Ready Salted and fish finger sandwiches – not a great night for cooking in the BeerFairy household but hey it was a Friday night.

On a tasting basis I would say it was light and a good session ale with minimal hangover which, lets face it, is all I was really looking for.

Off to London on the morrow for a few day’s r ‘n’ r with wife and brother and family so will have a sample of crafty cockney ales but my heart remains in Yorkshire.

Watch this space for further ramblings
