Review and Tasting


Sampled on 12/02/2017

Appearance:

(sample bottle best before 31/May/17) Opaque in centre and clear at edge, pale grey-green (more indicative of lime than lemon) with quickly dissipating rising bubbles.

Aroma:

Lemon and lime oils with faint quinine.

Taste:

Bittersweet with mouth puckering citrus acidity and dry quinine balanced by light sweetness.

Aftertaste:

Candied lemon and lime peel, citrus acidity and lingering quinine dryness.

Overall:

Like other mixers in the Schweppes range, this Bitter Lemon has its own very distinctive flavour, quite unlike other brands. If you’ve grown up with this – particularly in the UK, then other brands of Bitter Lemon are just not quite Bitter Lemon. However, its green hue and flavour are perhaps more suggestive of lime than lemon.
