Cask, Kings Head, Leicester. golden with a thin off white foam. Aromas are lemon meringue with grain and ripe apple. Brown sugar with hints of pear. Flavours are sweet pear with lemon and ginger. Spicy with dry tea and a woody finish. Average.

To be honest: I didn’t expect much of this beer as I’ve a number of ’Lemon’ 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.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer. Good suddy white head. Light dry palate. Nice flavour - as much ginger as it is lemon. Fresh and tantalising but the palate is over dry, especially on the finish.

[email protected] New Wheatsheaf, London. Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is lemongrass, zest, some hints of herbs and mild spices. Flavour is fruits, floral notes as well as some earthy and toasted notes.

2.4
niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
On cask at The Windmill Tavern, Clifton, Lancashire. Pours golden with a white head. Takes time to settle, it’s far too lemony, more like a lemon syrup. It appears a good bitter has been spoiled and it’s too sickly for me.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/07/2011. Pale amber with a slight, off-white head. Bready Malts, a touch of ginger and no lemon, leading to a moderately bitter finish [3.0]. Ok. RE-RATE: bottled version - worse, with too much lemon and an odd mix of a full strength beer that tastes like a shandy [2.6]

imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask conditiioned at The Charles Lamb, Islington, London. Gold with white head. Sharp gingery lemon notes, which is what it was supposed to be but this is a little over the top really. Bitter, thin close. It’s ok.

swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2011
cask in Tivoli wetherspoons Camb. Good lemon aroma, but should be better, pale-yellow, white minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, summer taste, light body, slick feel, average fruit beer, sometimes lot of citrus taste is not very good for a beer

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
[3168-20100727] Cask. Ginger and rosemary hints in the aroma, mostly ginger though. Clear, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head and some lacing. Tons of gingersnap in the flavour with a hint of a bitter finish. Medium body is mildly bitter. Really interesting brew.
