3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
19th December 2014
Very hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crispy. Light pale malts. Vibrant lemon and bergamot. Spicy pine hops. Light dry finish with a lemon spice linger. Punchy and very drinkable and a lot better than the Spoons cask version.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smelling peach iced tea, and a hint of melon. Taste is all tea, tea, tea. I drink exactly 0 tea ever, so my knowledge of particular kinds is lacking, but there’s a fuckload of tea. Quite bitter, but the bitterness clings to the tea flavours, making it something altogether different. I like it.

Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is freshly cut grass, grains, tea laves and citrus peel. Aroma is medium sweet and lightly crisp bitter and dry. Notes of citrus peel, green tea leaves, grapefruit. Finishes lightly dry and citrusy. Overall, ok IPA, decent tea notes

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange. Aroma is sweet with hints of toffee and caramel. Aroma does not dictate the taste. There's a lot of lemon zest going on and fresh cut grass with a 'massive load of earl grey blue flower tea'. Definitely an unusual mix of flavours but for some reason I keep wanting to go back for more!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 11/8/2014. Cloudy amber pour, hazy white head, a few wisps of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is a cloud of Earl Grey leaves, honeyed potpurri, soft citrus flesh, mild biscuit. Taste is round citrus, floral Earl Grey, spicy tea bitterness. Light medium body, drinkable, balanced. Very nice, the tea notes go well with the style- enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Keg at the bat. Hazy Amber, small off white head. Resinous tea nose. Bergamot and hops. Different and good.
27/2/15. Bottle from Cornelius. Lovely nose but less sure about the much bigger black tea flavour and slightly sickly stickiness that accompanies it. Not re-rating as I think it maybe is a duff bottle.
