Cask, Occasional;
This new, pale beer is guaranteed to be more fun than your usual lemon barley and is brewed with hints of natural lemon, complementing the delicate citric hop and malt flavour.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2011
Cask at Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons Beer Festival ’11. old with a white head. Some sweetness in the aroma. I found the taste was just a vague buttery malt with slight bitterness. Thought this was dull. And where was the lemon?

RichardW (1633) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2011
Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Initial impression is very dry, this mellows slightly and it becomes papery. Lemon is detectable, but minimal. Reckon the term ’fruit beer’ is pushing it a bit!

imdownthepub (10974) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Cask conditioned at a wetherspoons. Hazed gold with slight head. This started off with an odd perfumed note, a mix between butterscotch and boiled sweets. A little on the tart side, flowery, drinkable although not greatly enjoyable.

Leighton (12985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Clear, yellow-gold pour with a foamy, white head. Boring malt aroma with hints of citrus and hay. Pretty sweet flavor with pleasant dough and light, grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet and there are subtle notes of lemon here. More dough and sugar, faint hay. Easy drinking.
