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.

jjsint (2689) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Handpull cask at the Five Lamps, Derby. Golden, clear with a small film of white head. Doesnt put me off but doesnt exactly scream drink me either. Soft and barely tangible lemon aroma. Clean and not soapy like so many lemon ales. Taste is sweet, more like lemon merengue than lemon peel, with a gentle hoppiness in the finish. Well executed and while it lacks the flamboyance of Salopians best work, it is a solid little ale.
