3.2
DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
The Larry, Nuneaton Lemon squeezed on thistle and oak aroma. Thick oatmeal-and-slate Scottish mouthfeel, TCP dabs, oak, lemon, traces of sappy hop, oak again. Soft, dunked biscuit afters without a dab of butter. Not a note out of place. Could kill this in some quantity. Negligible but in good nick and very pleasant.

3.3
Sigmund (7458) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Old Yard Tapas Bar, Darlington. Golden colour, low but lasting creamy head. Very moderate aroma, a little fruity hops and pale malts. Soft mouthfeel. Tolerably hoppy flavour, very drinkable.

3.4
AshtonMcCobb (6581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2015
On cask at the sraf. Golden with a slim head. Lemon barley water, you know the script. Solid citizen, maybe even a bit further.

2.8

Cask, hand-pulled, SRAF 2015, Corn Exchange, Edinburgh (9 Jul 2015), honey, malty aroma, deep golden, no head, earthy, lemon, honey, cereal, prolonged honey aftertaste

2.8
DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2011
Hand pulled at the Figure of Eight, Birmingham. A bit of lemon barley, cardboard and some spring water. Fairly dry and a bit refreshing, but I won’t be rushing back. Felt a bit weird in the mouth. Strange.

2.6
hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2011
Cask at Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons Beer Festival ’11. old with a white head. Some sweetness in the aroma. I found the taste was just a vague buttery malt with slight bitterness. Thought this was dull. And where was the lemon?

2.3
tommann (3745) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask at the Chequers Inn, JDW, Stourbridge. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is lemon washing up liquid with some light malt behind. Not much to start with the taste. Thin grassy finish. Certainly not lip smacking.

3.1
nihtila (3634) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Cask at SRAF. Pours clear golden, big harsh white head. Nose is refreshing lemon, malts. Tastes bitter lemon, smooth malts, citrus.
