2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hand pulled at the Figure of Eight, Birmingham. A bit of lemon barley, cardboard and some spring water. Fairly dry and a bit refreshing, but I won’t be rushing back. Felt a bit weird in the mouth. Strange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Larry, Nuneaton Lemon squeezed on thistle and oak aroma. Thick oatmeal-and-slate Scottish mouthfeel, TCP dabs, oak, lemon, traces of sappy hop, oak again. Soft, dunked biscuit afters without a dab of butter. Not a note out of place. Could kill this in some quantity. Negligible but in good nick and very pleasant.

Cask at the Chequers Inn, JDW, Stourbridge. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is lemon washing up liquid with some light malt behind. Not much to start with the taste. Thin grassy finish. Certainly not lip smacking.

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?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
