DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Bronze with a white skim. Pleasantly mushy and biscuit-accented with a hint of hop behind it. Watery boiled sweet (peardrop) aroma, and flavour for that matter. Allegedly contains ginger. Not sure what’s going on here but it’s clean, biscuity, dull...and I don’t mind it.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
2010-07-27. Crisp golden yellow body with a small white head and lace. 3+ Mild aroma is dominated by ginger. 5+ Flavour is quite mild, light lemon, ginger notes in the finish linger into the aftertaste. Average to light palate. Meh. Cask at The Lamb and Flag, Oxford

Svesse (8595) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2010
(Cask at Castle, Chancery Lane, London, 19 May 2010) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with biscuity malt and citrus. Fruity, malty taste with notes of lemon, biscuits, grass and a balanced citrussy bitterness in the finish. Below medium body, sweetish. Refreshing but rather one dimensional.

ladnewton (1961) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2010
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.

wheresthepath (2332) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
[Cask at Oakford Social Club, Reading] Gold with a moderate lasting white head. Faint carbonation. A hint of lemon, verging on lime. Some dusty hops. And just a mild gingery aftertaste leaving a rather sticky palatte. It all feels rather toned down and polite. Perfectly drinkable, but rather bland.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2006
Cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light gold with a small white head. Medicinal aroma: elastoplast, honey and lemon Lemsip, with a whiff of wet horse. The taste is artificial lemon with a hint of ginger. Not much bitterness. Not good. For me a definite drainpour.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
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 weather’s warmer.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #13 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. Amber colour. This was odd. When I first bought this the first sniff almost took my breath away with the lemon and spiciness. However, a bit later, I put the beer down next to different one, forgot which was which and was hard pressed to pick up the lemon at that point. The flavour is mildly bitter, slightly sharp and more gingery than lemony. Mouthfeel is a bit soft. Started promisingly but didn’t quite finish the job.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
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 it’s actually quite a nice smell. The taste is fruity and herbal. More lemon and maybe some rosemary. Quite nice.
