COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

imdownthepub (10123) - 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.

DanielBrown (3771) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2011
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.

Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Golden with a cream head. Aromas are toast malts with lemon zest, yeast and hints of sulphur. Flavours are sweet toast malts with lemon. Yeasty but not really much going on, overall.

JohnRMurdoch (3239) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2011
Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Strong vegetable aroma. Pale golden colour with a great foamy head. Dry biscuit flavour with a sweet aftertaste. Not getting much fruit here.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2011
[Cask at Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Rich gold with a moderate white head and a slight fizz. A little lemon (although not as dominant as the name implies it should be), some sweetcorn and a clean if rather cardboardy bitterness. OK refresher, if a little thin.

alexanderj (3310) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Back log from Spring of 2011 in Scotland; On tap, poured a golden color with an average head. Aroma and flavor were on the bland side. Some bread and citrus, but a fairly underwhelming beer.

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?

Light and refreshing despite its poor pale appearance, although there’s no real hints of lemon.

tommann (2663) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
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.

RichardW (1494) - 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!
