3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12th July 2011
Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer. Good suddy white head. Light dry palate. Nice flavour - as much ginger as it is lemon. Fresh and tantalising but the palate is over dry, especially on the finish.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On cask at The Windmill Tavern, Clifton, Lancashire. Pours golden with a white head. Takes time to settle, itís far too lemony, more like a lemon syrup. It appears a good bitter has been spoiled and itís too sickly for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/07/2011. Pale amber with a slight, off-white head. Bready Malts, a touch of ginger and no lemon, leading to a moderately bitter finish [3.0]. Ok. RE-RATE: bottled version - worse, with too much lemon and an odd mix of a full strength beer that tastes like a shandy [2.6]
