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,

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Rhythm and Booze - a quid! Cloudy yellow body, frothy white top. Nose is very much like a cheap shandy, lots of lemonade, can’t pick up the alleged ginger. Taste is sweet, with a little warmth at the end. But like Garrold says... it is a quid!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
