downender (7626) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011
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]

imdownthepub (12585) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask conditiioned at The Charles Lamb, Islington, London. Gold with white head. Sharp gingery lemon notes, which is what it was supposed to be but this is a little over the top really. Bitter, thin close. It’s ok.

swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2011
cask in Tivoli wetherspoons Camb. Good lemon aroma, but should be better, pale-yellow, white minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, summer taste, light body, slick feel, average fruit beer, sometimes lot of citrus taste is not very good for a beer

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
[3168-20100727] Cask. Ginger and rosemary hints in the aroma, mostly ginger though. Clear, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head and some lacing. Tons of gingersnap in the flavour with a hint of a bitter finish. Medium body is mildly bitter. Really interesting brew.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Bronze with a white skim. Pleasantly mushy and biscuit-accented with a hint of hop behind it. Watery boiled sweet (peardrop) aroma, and flavour for that matter. Allegedly contains ginger. Not sure what’s going on here but it’s clean, biscuity, dull...and I don’t mind it.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
2010-07-27. Crisp golden yellow body with a small white head and lace. 3+ Mild aroma is dominated by ginger. 5+ Flavour is quite mild, light lemon, ginger notes in the finish linger into the aftertaste. Average to light palate. Meh. Cask at The Lamb and Flag, Oxford

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2010
(Cask at Castle, Chancery Lane, London, 19 May 2010) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with biscuity malt and citrus. Fruity, malty taste with notes of lemon, biscuits, grass and a balanced citrussy bitterness in the finish. Below medium body, sweetish. Refreshing but rather one dimensional.

ladnewton (1721) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 18th May 2010. Gold with very little head. Lemon and ginger abound whilst grassy hop kicks in late. Grassy, herby spicy aftertaste. An entertaining novelty beer.

wheresthepath (1998) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
[Cask at Oakford Social Club, Reading] Gold with a moderate lasting white head. Faint carbonation. A hint of lemon, verging on lime. Some dusty hops. And just a mild gingery aftertaste leaving a rather sticky palatte. It all feels rather toned down and polite. Perfectly drinkable, but rather bland.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2006
Cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light gold with a small white head. Medicinal aroma: elastoplast, honey and lemon Lemsip, with a whiff of wet horse. The taste is artificial lemon with a hint of ginger. Not much bitterness. Not good. For me a definite drainpour.
