COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
OG: 1044
Colour: Bright Gold
Style: A wheat beer very much in the modern English style – served bright and top fermented. The recipe uses a small amount of fresh lemon to compliment the citrussy flavours produced by the wheat malt. Each of the Hops used, Goldings, Saaz and Cascade add fresh lemony flavours to the brew.
History: Originally Salopian was renowned (notorious?) for producing some fairly outlandish beer, usually brewed with wheat and fruit flavoured. Most of these were surprisingly well received, but mainly in speciality outlets or in bottles. Lemon Dream was devised to be far more subtle – basically a slightly lagery, lightly bittered beer with a hint of lemon. We felt that this would appeal to a broader market and this has definitely been the case, with many ‘traditional’ Pubs running the beer as a regular through the spring and summer. It has found favour at competitions too, winning an award at CAMRA West Midlands 4 years on the bounce as well as at SIBA West Midlands too.

2.1
Turtles (2967) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2017
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear and pale golden, small and lasting white head, poor lacing. Grainy and malty nose with perfumed lemon. Light and fairly crisp mouthfeel. Grassy taste with lemons, the lemon flavor is on the cough drops side of things and kind of mess this up.

Benters (76) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2017
Pours a clear golden colour with average carbonation. Aromas are subtle lemon and citrus, slightly earthy hops. Taste is crisp, refreshing, slightly bready, lemons and herbal flavours prominent with nicely balanced hop bitterness. Finish is slightly bitter. Good golden ale.

Cask (Private purchase) - Well I don't know how this beer isn't getting better ratings on here as myself and my friends think it's absolutely outstanding for the style of beer that it is. I'll leave the tasting notes to others but I would happily drink this dry, refreshing, thirst quencher day in day out. In a word, outstanding, and in my opinion an imrpvement to Salopian's delightful Hop Twister.

2.9
BenOver (329) - SLOVENIA - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours golden, just like a non-filtered lager. Medium top, quickly diminishing and white coloured. Aroma is strong acidic, some buttery notes, slight yeast hint. Taste is much fuller than what I expected from the colour. FUll, low carbonated upfront, not hoppy, more sweet, later evolves in to a sour and dry finish. Something new. A good one.
