some amazing beers tonight. this had two predominant flavours - black tea and apricots. thankfully the tea took the back seat to provide a base to the citrus and other malty goodness. utterly fantastic.

Keg at Spitfire. Pours clear amber. Nose is herbs, fruits, citrus, tea. Tastes fruits, tea, herbs, caramel. In a way I dont like tea in beer but this is quite good although the tea is quite dominant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg @ Birmingham Beer Bash 2015. Pours hazy gold with lively white head. Grainy cereal, vanilla and a sweet spiciness. Didn’t know it was earl grey they used til afterwards. Alright but the spiciness doesn’t gel too brilliantly for me.

On draught at the 28th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival. The aroma is distinctly earl grey tea. Somehow, the flavor is a nice balance of the hoppy IPA and the herbal and earl grey tea notes.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I usually dislike when people rate a beer when they have a fundamental distaste for the style. For example, if you don’t like hops than you shouldn’t rate an IPA low, just stay clear of it. But making a beer that tastes like your grandmother’s perfume is deeply off. Perfume is not something the human body should consume. I wish I had of read the label before I bought this. Tastes like floral perfume with only a hint of IPA. Dud idea. Sure taste is subjective but yeastie boys subjectivity is lame.

Unlikely to be everyone’s cup of tea, this is a spectacular beer with a full on whomp of earl grey to it.
