Mora2000 (5857) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Sampled and reviewed in December but not entered until now because I didnít know it was in the RateBeer database. Pours an orangish-amber color with a white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is ginger and lemons, similar to what you get from bottled lemon iced tea from the store. The flavor is heavy on the lemon with some ginger. No alcohol or hop presence. Also similar to ginger ale. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Nose is a very specific brand of ginger snap cookies (red striped tin, very thin, arranged in a spiral pattern) Taste is lemon, creme soda, and ginger ale. Not really a beer but I like it.

(275ml bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours pale yellow with light bubbles. Nose of lemonade, sugar and light grains. Taste of lemonade, sugary, light grains, with a well carbonated body thatís light and refreshing. Could be better with less sugar I think.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2010
bottle pours light gold, thin white head lots of bubbles. Aroma is sugary lemon soda. Flavor is sweet, faint grassy beer flavors but overall a lot of 7up and Sprite flavors going on.

tgncc (2948) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2010
The nose is malty, honey, lemon. Clear pale yellow, white head. The flavor is like lemonade and honey mixed in with a pale lager. Although beer comprises 70% of the beverage, itís not obvious from drinking it. The finish has no bitterness, just a sweet lemony aftertaste. Different. Not unenjoyable, just not what I would normally seek out in a beer. I guess you could serve this to a DD at a party or something.
