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.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
500ml bottle shared with a mate during a random beer tastine evening on 15 Feb 2013. This beer has an acquired taste and it wasn’t to my liking: it states quiet clearly on the front label there is a ’lemon and ginger’ hint, so I wasn’t surprised went I tasted the brew. Just not my ’Cup of Tea’. Dull old gold in colour with a lemon/ginger aroma and flavour throughout. Almost overpowering, but I managed my half by eating some strong Cheddar Cheese with it: not an ideal match, but it helped me through the tasting. If you are into Ginger and Lemons then this is for you, otherwise stay away (I’ve tried to score objectively).
