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.
