This beer is brewed especially for the Looking Glass pub in Warrington. Pours a pale colour, taste is of cereals and oats

tombyars (1374) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in July 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong intense aroma of vanilla ice cream. Smooth creamy mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt component leads you to think a citrus whack is on the cards but a juicy medlay of tropical fruit appears instead. Lychees, mango, honeydew melon, white peach and soft brown sugar assault the taste buds. Floral hop resins give a short bitter aftertaste but fruity malt continue into the finish with dry pommegranate notes. This is an excellent ESB and highly recommended.

FatPhil (9372) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2011
Cask (Cross Keys JDW, London)
Lactic, acidic, and spooned pale ale. Worst of all - it had just come on (wasn’t on when we arrived, had it on our way out). Staff weren’t even anywhere near the bar so that I could tell them they’re selling crap. Should rerate. Should insult the pub.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2011
Forget the commercial description, this beer is bland and watery. Golden with a white head. Some malt, some hops, nothing exciting at all and at 5% seriously? One of Wetherspoons mistake beers.

stravale (2104) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 16, 2011
Cask @ Wetherspoon, Inverness. Appearance - Golden beer, 1 finger white head. Aroma - not much aroma, some sweet malt. Taste - Bland and watery (for 5.0% abv!), again some sweet malt, slight citrus hop, very boring. Nothing much in the palate, finish has some cereal, and slight citrus. A rather tasteless brew for the lager drinkers. The commercial description is a joke.

Bullit (4013) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2011
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Hazy dark golden colour, off-white head. Nose is malted, bit citric, slightly sour. Flavour is malty, citrus, followed by dry biscuit. A bit dusty. Slightly dry and bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2009
The Baron. Pale gold with a cream rim. Buttery sock aroma I’m afraid. Tired diacetyl-smothered citrus, some decent grassy undercurrents, jellied orange. Vanilla buttery, some cask and biscuit linger, faint lime and grapefruit. Tired and thin beside the Double Header, but a dribble of character remains.
