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.

downender (7140) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 30/03/2011. Golden in colour with a decent white head. Sweetish, creamy malt and citrus aroma. Flavour had some lemon drops, bready malts and a short, bitter finish. Ok.

imdownthepub (11662) - 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 (4164) - 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.

wheresthepath (1833) - 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 (3428) - 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.
