COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A panda enters a restaurant, sits down and orders a sandwich. After he finishes the sandwich, the panda pulls out a gun and shoots the waiter, and then stands up to go. "Hey!" shouts the manager. "Where are you going? You just shot my waiter and you didnít pay for your sandwich!"

The panda yells back at the manager, "Hey man, I am a PANDA! Look it up!"

The manager looks up the definition for panda: "A free-dwelling mamal of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves."

101 Bottles, Kent. Not bad. Yellow bodied with observed carbonation bubbles and a bit of soapy off white head. Green tea gave it a mellowing fruity side to the bitterness. A little funk aroma with the hops. Decent drinkability.

Got a nose allergy today after cleaning up a dusty area only smelling with one nostril... meh. Clearish orange pour. SMell is sweet sugar with candied citrus. Fresh-smelling. Flavor is sweet, candied oranges/orange juice/hi-c is the main flavor, th gree tea is evident and it also has some lemon-lime. It is alright but far too sweet, not balanced.

blankboy (5799) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Draught at Pizza Plant, Williamsville, NY. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small diminishing frothy white head and some minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, mild tea, hops and light vegetal notes. Decent hoppy flavour backed by caramel malt and some tea. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. Just good, not great.

BBB63 (5744) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle and served in GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a lasting nice frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of citrus and piney hops, light green tea, biscuity and caramel malts with a floral overtone. The taste is shockingly more bitter than expected and has a very heavy astringent tannic nature likely from the tea but seemingly from the grains as well. Moderately fruity and slightly spicey as well. The mouth feel is lively enough but the tannic overkill really ruins the drinkability of this beer. I was hoping for a refreshing summer beer like I had with the Brass Monkey Green Tea Pale Ale (RIP) back in 2008 but this was not up to my expectations.

#4500 Draft at Blue Monk. Copper pour. Menthol notes in both aroma and flavor. Herbal, green tea. Big caramel maltiness, malts dominate. Green tea adds some interesting flavors but too malty IMO
