4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours amber-orange with a thick white head. Aroma is a mingling of citrusy hops and bergamot. Taste is Earl Grey upfront with hoppy citrus following. Some pleasant lingering bitterness and bergamot. Body is on the lighter side with a decent amount of carbonation. You have to like Earl Grey to get into this beer but if you do, the combination with citrusy hops works very well. I love Earl Grey and I love this beer.

Slightly hazy copper with a fast fading head. Amazing nose that is at once full of tea but also reminds me of the beach. Wonderful tones of earl grey tea and mango and light piney resins with some light grapefruit, and sunshine. Smooth earthy flavor with some leafy floral bitterness, loads of earl grey, a smack of bittersweet grapefruit rind, finishing on pine and earl grey. Wonderful.

My two favorite drinks combined. Love the bergamot aroma. Pours a dark amber with thin white head. Tropical fruit at the front of the palate giving way to the tea/hop bitterness which has a moderately long finish. I’d imagine this would be quite dangerous on a hot night

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Great, extreme beer. Aromas of coriander, caramel, grass. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

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.

pale, golden, amber, creamy, I was very happy with this beer at the recent wetherspoons festival. I had 2 pints of this which is quite a lot for me. I like earl grey tea too so combining tea and beer was quite ingenious. Best one that I tried at the festival this time.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Golden-light orange body. Moderate sized white head. Distinctively brewed with earl grey tea. The bergamot orange is unmistakable and is accented by a perfume-like floral profile and some grapefruit. Flavor is similar, soft and pleasant. Medium to light bodied, appropriate carbonation, lightly bitter finish. A great change of pace and well done offering.

From a 330ml bottle on 10/10/2012.Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a big fluffy white head. The aroma is dominated by strong Earl Grey tea with a light fruity background. In the mouth, there is both sweet and tart citrus fruit, a hint of grapefruit, and heaps more Bergamot orange/Earl Grey tea flavour. The bitterness is medium to high, and sticks around well after it goes down the hatch. This is an extremely unusual, impressive and delightful brew.
