jjsint (924) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Golden amber. Still, almost no head. Hard to get past the ginger in the aroma. A bit of fruit but mostly ginger astringency. Spicy sweet ginger taste tempered by a sour bitter note that asserts itself more convincingly in the finish. Sour/bitter aftertaste. Weak but refreshing mouthfeel. Decent all in all, although I personally tend to dislike ginger beers I can appreciate its worth.

mike_77 (3410) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2013
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.

Must be for people that don’t lige beer, and has to mix it with lemon-juice. Not pleasent. Amber coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Odd mix of fatty lemon and beer. Flavor of sweet lemon-candy, then bitter.

ianwelby (542) - SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2012
An amber beer with a frothy head. It’s 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 it’s almost like lemonade. An odd but likeable beer.
