"Didn't like it. Not near enough lemon flavor."

"This was very tasty but it does need to be thinned out a little with some more milk so that it can be drizzled over the cake..."

"This has a very light feeling to it. Perfect summer dessert. Slight lemon flavor. I personally would like slightly more lemon flavor. I am going to add more milk next time I make it as the sauce is a little thicker than I would prefer. Overall, though, it is very delicious and am making it again today."
