Cask @ the Warf. Pours golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, some citrus, apples and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and malty with some fruitiness and floral hops. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Lyoli tried some, didnít really dig it. Pours rich, clear gold with a small, foamy white head. Nose holds some distinctive lemon, citrus rind, hints of ginger spice, toasted malts, leaves. Light sweet flavor, some dank, sweaty lemon, toasty bread, leafy bitterness, mild toasted grass. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild bitter finish, mellow sweetness, some earth and leaves, lasting lemon rind, some background ginger that provides a very light bite. Itís decent beer, although at times a touch thin and with excessive grassy hops. Still, decent.

50cl bottle from the Sainsburyís Beer Hunt range. Amber with a compact cream head; aroma of ginger and lemon; fresh taste with ground ginger and lemon; and a underlying herbal bitterness. A pleasant and refreshing summer ale.

500 ml bottle from Sainsburys served fridge cold in a large tulip. Bottle said the ABV was 4.0%. Bronze with a thin white head.Plenty of aroma- mainly pears and ginger. A bit strange on the taste buds: I enjoyed the juicy lemon ginger and spice flavours, but found the hop bitterness in the finish intruded. A genuine curates egg. Nice idea that is only partially successful for me.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle from Sainsburys Hessle. Golden brown, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Delicate lemon and spice in the nose with some background grain, very dry and bitter in the mouth with some citrus notes and a vague suggestion of ginger spiciness, lingering citrus in the finish but never very dominant.

Bottle pours a clear yellow ale with a slim head that dissipates. Aroma is certainly an initial hit of ginger, success and lemon with a floral backing. The taste is of ginger followed by a dry or bitter herbal note with a clear lemon finish. Innovative, yes & I rather liked it.

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.

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,

far too much ginger. not enough beer (or lemon). a bit like one of those horrible ginger drinks. thankfully not as sweet.
