Clear yellow, sweet lemon in the scent and taste. Some light hop too. A touch cooler and it’d be a perfect summer beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpull cask at the Five Lamps, Derby. Golden, clear with a small film of white head. Doesn’t put me off but doesn’t exactly scream ’drink me’ either. Soft and barely tangible lemon aroma. Clean and not soapy like so many lemon ales. Taste is sweet, more like lemon merengue than lemon peel, with a gentle hoppiness in the finish. Well executed and while it lacks the flamboyance of Salopian’s best work, it is a solid little ale.
