bitter lemon

Here is my best explanation:

'drink' is the definition.
(bitter lemon is a kind of drink)

'beer on me possibly after end of poll' is the subsidiary indication.
'beer' becomes 'bitter' (I've seen this before**).
'possibly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'after' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'end of' suggests the final letters.
The last letter of 'poll' is 'l'.
'on'+'me'='onme'
'onme' with letters rearranged gives 'emon'.
'emon' put after 'l' is 'lemon'.
'bitter'+'lemon'='bitterlemon'
