beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Poured at Belmont Station. Light hazy yellow with a thin white head. Very doughy malt nose like fresh bread dough, soft herbal hop character. Palate was very light, airy high carbonation, very dry finish. faint tart note. I didnt really get any of the green tea flavor from it, to light bodied to get the green tea sweetness.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Lemongrass and various citrus fruit gleefully scent this juicy, tart and dry summer quencher. An eclectic number which does not recall any sort of tea most people have ever had.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim film of foam covers the light yellow.
-Our program said this was brewed by Chinese black tea, not green tea...
-The spicy citrus component is dominant and combined with the nearly anemic body makes this extremely easy to down.
-A light weizen yeast character roams in the background.
-A drop of milk in your tea, sir? Uh, sure.

Bottle; best before April 2009.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle: Pours a golden yellow color with a light white head. The nose is grassy with some light wood and toasty pale malts, some mild yeast esters and a touch of green hops. The flavor is slightly astringent reminiscent of tea along with pear and some hop bitterness. Grassy, fruity and floral towards the end. Fairly timid yet it’s interesting for the whole glass.

oh6gdx (25464) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2010
Bottled@The 1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks MMM!). Slightly hazy honeyish golden colour with not too much head. Aroma is fruity, a bit wooden and also quite malty. Flavour is slightly fruity, some malts, mild grassyness as well. Some slight dryness. I had waited for something more dry with a tealeaf beer, but this works surprisingly refreshing.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2008
Cloudy straw color with plenty of fish food swimming about. Smallish white head. Hints of citrus in the land of lagerdom. Some light wheat and pale malt sneak out every once and awhile. Quite smooth on the palate, but a touch lifeless as well. Light pale malt start with just hints of citrus, and lemongrass. I dont find much unique in this one. Has some kolsch qualities and not much of a tea presence.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent, fat-bubbled retention. The aroma offers notes of coriander, white pepper and lemon. I dislike coriander so much that I would have preferred the olive/vinegar/caper aroma sensed by those who sampled and rated this brew before me. Alas, none of that in my bottle. Light to medium-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. The flavor is dominated by coriander spiciness with moderate pale grain sweetness and light pungency. Crisp, spicy, lightly acidic finish. Interesting, but spendy, and not really my cup of T.

Stew41 (1941) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 11, 2008
This tea based beer is a first for me. Light lemon /orange in colour; not disimilar to a German wheat beer. Soft of nose of mild sweet malts but not much else. Palate shows a little more; slightly honeyed malts giving way to a clear cold tea flavour with mild bitterness. The weiss flavours also hang around. Quite bland on one hand but points for being different. (EuR 8 from Bier & Fud, Rome).
