Must be for people that don’t lige beer, and has to mix it with lemon-juice. Not pleasent. Amber coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Odd mix of fatty lemon and beer. Flavor of sweet lemon-candy, then bitter.

An amber beer with a frothy head. It’s got a very dry citrus and ginger flavour though the aroma is almost stronger than the taste. If you let it sit on the tongue it’s almost like lemonade. An odd but likeable beer.

Bottled from Copper, Gosforth. An abundance of fresh lemon in the aroma, leads to quite a full on bitter assault with the first mouthful. Very little sweetness given the addition of ginger. The lemon plus the hops pushes the bitterness just a touch too far for my liking. Enjoyable as a one off/something different, but would probably not go for another,

500ml bottle from Sainsburys Ashford. Clear amber not much head. Smells of a bitter shandy, tastes of bitter shandy with a bit more bitterness coming in from the ginger. Quite a lasting bitter ginger finish. So lemon up front, ginger, carbonic acid and bitterness on finish. Yep, not very good to be honest.

To be honest: I didn’t expect much of this beer as I’ve a number of ’Lemon’ beers to try, but I have to say this was certainly worth drinking. Refreshing with an excellent balance of malty sweetness, fresh lemony flavours and hints of ginger. Perfect for summer drinking and I can imagine this will certainly appeal to the female palate as well as being a great session beer. Not bad at all.
