strawman (28) - - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled from Copper, Gosforth. An abundance of fresh lemon in the aroma, leads to quite a full on bitter assault with the first mouthful. Very little sweetness given the addition of ginger. The lemon plus the hops pushes the bitterness just a touch too far for my liking. Enjoyable as a one off/something different, but would probably not go for another,

The_Osprey (9159) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2017
August 2017 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'Nethergate Lemon Head'. Golden yellow, clear and still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is elderflower and lemon, mint. A bit artificial. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is elderflower, light sugary malt, biscuity notes. Tastes fine but I found the aroma a bit weird. (5-4-6-4-14=3.3)

mR_fr0g (13516) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Cask at the GBBF 2017. Day 3. 10/08/2017. A clear golden orange coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is sweaty grassy. Hop, light apple and nutty malts,. Flavour is composed of semi sweet, sweaty grassy hop, raw grains, hint of diacetyl. Long curd.. Palate is semi sweet, lowish pithy,. Meh.

Cask. Without guidance I would not have spotted the ginger in the scent. For me it was funky and spicy like a curried burp. And I like my blondes blonde. This can pass for amber with a thin lace top. Fortunately after an unalluring start it settles well in the palate so that the finish is far better. Not sure if it would sell under the name lemon bottom but its nether regions are better than those closer to the gate.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2016
Cask @ Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield [030916]
Amber, soft haze, dense white head
Aroma of soft ginger, touch of lemon underneath, no malts, does what it says on the pump clip
Taste of lemon and ginger nut biscuits, quite sweet malt, tangy, lemon slightly metallic
Palate - Medium body, tangy bitter lemon, soft sweet ginger. Finish as main flavour, bitter tangy lemon, slightly harsh bitter
Overall - OK, gimmicky, slight metallic edge in finish spoils it a little

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 11, 2016
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with a crispy lemon peel and lemon juice note. Taste is also medium sweet and fruity with more biscuit and lemon notes. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

3.4
BeerViking (5047) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
Cask at the Angel JDW, light brown with a fine foam, malty nose with a hint of citrus, notes of toffee malt and lemon, with a refreshing earthy and citrus bitterness. Very quaffable.

2.8
Mr_Pink_152 (5550) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at the three horseshoes, Waddington. Golden colour with a shite head. Aroma certainly has ginger and citrus. Taste ginger and fruity.

3.4
Biroholik (1545) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Cask @ White House, Luton
Ciemnobursztynowy kolor, mętne. Bardzo ładna biała piana tworząca niezliczone firanki na szkle. W aromacie na pierwszy plan wysuwa się imbir. Zaraz za nim podąża cytrynowa rześkość. W smaku podobnie - mix cytrusów: limonki, cytryny i mocna nuta imbiru. Dość gęste i treściwe. Całkiem ciekawy wynalazek.

2.9
Towey1989 (3270) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, a lot of ginger and some pale malt. Taste again of soapy lemon, ginger and some herbal, grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A lightly tangy, ginger finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing but it’s quite weak in terms of flavour.
