stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2016
Cask @ Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield [030916]
Amber, soft haze, dense white head
Aroma of soft ginger, touch of lemon underneath, no malts, does what it says on the pump clip
Taste of lemon and ginger nut biscuits, quite sweet malt, tangy, lemon slightly metallic
Palate - Medium body, tangy bitter lemon, soft sweet ginger. Finish as main flavour, bitter tangy lemon, slightly harsh bitter
Overall - OK, gimmicky, slight metallic edge in finish spoils it a little

teorn88 (6732) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with a crispy lemon peel and lemon juice note. Taste is also medium sweet and fruity with more biscuit and lemon notes. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

Cask at the Angel JDW, light brown with a fine foam, malty nose with a hint of citrus, notes of toffee malt and lemon, with a refreshing earthy and citrus bitterness. Very quaffable.

Cask @ White House, Luton
Ciemnobursztynowy kolor, mętne. Bardzo ładna biała piana tworząca niezliczone firanki na szkle. W aromacie na pierwszy plan wysuwa się imbir. Zaraz za nim podąża cytrynowa rześkość. W smaku podobnie - mix cytrusów: limonki, cytryny i mocna nuta imbiru. Dość gęste i treściwe. Całkiem ciekawy wynalazek.

Towey1989 (1895) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, a lot of ginger and some pale malt. Taste again of soapy lemon, ginger and some herbal, grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A lightly tangy, ginger finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing but it’s quite weak in terms of flavour.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Golden amber. Still, almost no head. Hard to get past the ginger in the aroma. A bit of fruit but mostly ginger astringency. Spicy sweet ginger taste tempered by a sour bitter note that asserts itself more convincingly in the finish. Sour/bitter aftertaste. Weak but refreshing mouthfeel. Decent all in all, although I personally tend to dislike ginger beers I can appreciate its worth.

Cuso (7813) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 7, 2013

mike_77 (5564) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2013
Aroma of lemon peel and lemon scented dish washing fluid. Flavour is initially like a shandy made with ’real lemonade’. Finish is quite bitter with a warming hint of ginger.
