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.

Leighton (10540) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
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.
