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.

Pours a blonde colour. Slight hint of lemon rind and air freshner. Not bad overall

BenOver (314) - 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.

foxo82 (899) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
Bottle at home. Defeinitely some detectable bitter lemon. Gives it a nice clean zing to accompany the bitterness of the hops, plus feels like it might be disinfecting my digestive passage at the same time. Two birds.

thejackpacker (420) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Cask at London and County, Eastbourne. Smells like a lemony cleaning product and tastes like a bad lager shandy / cheap lemonade. Nopeeeeee

Parmenion777 (276) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2017 A clear golden colour with a small white head. A citrus lemon and light grain aroma. A lemony taste, again some grain, sweetness and tart bitterness in the finish. Not keen.

3.2
Heidbummer (609) - SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Pint at an airport spoons. Pours pale gold, lasting white head. Aroma of lemon sherbet and grass. More of that on the taste. Crisp and refreshing, if uncomplicated.

3.1
kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2017

2.9
Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2016
Cask 1/3 pint, gravity dispense, at the 16th Twickenham Beer & Cider Festival. Pale golden colour, small white head. Moderate aroma of lemons. Lemony flavour all right, but not much more than that. Thin body.

3.2
teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 1, 2016
Cask at CBC Covent Garden. It pours a pale straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is dry crispy grainy with notes of hay straw melon citrus peel. Taste is also crispy citric with notes of straw and lemon peel. Soft to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, OK
