Have you ever tasted that stuff? IMHO, it's AWFUL. I wouldn't put it in my beer. If you like the way it tastes when added to iced tea or other beverages, by all means, give it a shot.

Why not buy some lemons, slice one up and put in a plastic baggy in the fridge. Add a slice to each pint as you drink. It'll be fresh and make a nice presentation on the glass.

I know, I rarely use it myself. I only use it for emergencies when I need a lemon, but don't have any fresh lemons around. BUT, if one was particularly nervous about infection, this is probably the safest bet, and it would be easy to test with. If it weren't already primed, it might be interesting to prime a beer with frozen lemonade concentrate (undiluted)
