Hansen (8333) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2012
Must be for people that donít 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.

ianwelby (1039) - SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2012
An amber beer with a frothy head. Itís 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 itís almost like lemonade. An odd but likeable beer.

strawman (26) - - SEP 20, 2012
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,

superflyguy (435) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
far too much ginger. not enough beer (or lemon). a bit like one of those horrible ginger drinks. thankfully not as sweet.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
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.

leaparsons (9674) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Cask, Kings Head, Leicester. golden with a thin off white foam. Aromas are lemon meringue with grain and ripe apple. Brown sugar with hints of pear. Flavours are sweet pear with lemon and ginger. Spicy with dry tea and a woody finish. Average.

BeerLuvver (91) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
To be honest: I didnít expect much of this beer as Iíve a number of íLemoní 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.
