4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask (gravity) at the Brunswick festival, 2005. Forget what I may have said elsewhere, this was beer of the fest for me. Very demanding nose of fresh lemon, less in the flavour as it calms down to a more gently spiced flavour. And something herbal in there, rather like those Fentimans soft drinks? Very refreshing, must try this again when the weatherís warmer.

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.

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.

3.6 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,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. Acopper coloured beer with an aroma of both lemon and ginger. There is some toilet cleaner or washing up liquid mixed in - all of this sounds pretty nasty but itís actually quite a nice smell. The taste is fruity and herbal. More lemon and maybe some rosemary. Quite nice.
