JLP86 (10) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2018
Kleur: Abrikoosachtig oranje, veel koolzuur
Smaak: fris, licht, hop aanwezig, maar niet overheersend, tonen van perzik en natuurlijk Earl Grey. Uitstekende manier om thee te drinken! Beer5000 (7001) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2018
Can. Slightly unclear body with a fine white head. Nice aroma that's actually smells like floral tea with some citric fruit and soft malt in the background. Flavor is rich, soft floral tea, fruit, a bit like ice tea with soft malt and moderate bitterness. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. An interesting version of an IPA, and it works great. CurlyJoe (470) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2018 Very flower-y IPA. Yea adds to the floral and fruit taste, not too bitter but it's definitely there. Great beer. DanielBrown (4605) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2018
Can from a service station Waitrose. Smells delightful - pressed petunia leaf, with a rainwater lime. Delicious taste: squidy citrus fruit, with melted sugar and lemon gum. Like a firm press on the trigger of a miniature water pistol. rodsquad (465) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2018 Can as gift thanks to Cam. Pours a hazy, apricot-orange gold with a creamy, fluffy off-white head. Plenty of bubbles in the glass makes a very attractive looking beer. Aromas of toffee and St Clements citrus. It's really bright and fresh. Right enough, there's a light touch of tea leaf that adds earthiness. There's also a sweet, sherbet quality that persists. On the first tasting it hits you straight away with a real lemony herb that is the stand-out signature of Earl Grey. They've got this bang-on for refreshment and not the gimmick. It's so light and fresh. It feels smooth and full bodied although the flavours lighten the experience. It has a bubbly, gentle level of carbonation. Really fresh floral and citrus lightens this beer leading you to an impression of something resembling sessionable. A dangerously tasty IPA.

Very nice kwik-lime (2243) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 Can at the Gatehouse in Tonbridge. Quite citrusey, hints of tea, moderate hop. Nice beer. alements (1) - - FEB 16, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 classic apa front end (hoppy, citrus) with a sharp finish, notes of earl grey tea coming through strong ruuurd (425) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2018 Orange-yellow hazy pour. The smell reminds me of a homemade ice tea with lemons. Fresh, but also with a nice, different taste! blueruin (354) - - FEB 2, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 1st rating:
Hops and some zest. I get some of the bergamot/zesty flavour I'd expect in earl grey, but I'm not entirely convinced it works as a beer. Almost a little soapy, but with some unneeded caramel sweetness? Nothing wrong with it, just not for me.
2nd Rating, Feb 18.
Can at home from beerbods
Deep orange-y yellow with minimal bubbly head
Aroma is grapefruit pith plus some cereal/malt. Some juicy orange tang going on?
Taste is juicy, more grapefruit. Not sure if I can taste the tea or just being suggestible, it’s decent enough. Think what i'd previously perceived of caramel sweetness is the tea/bergamot notes coming through. Finish is juicy and a little herbal – the tea?
Palate is solid,
Overall, this is nice, if pretty unusual. Not something I’d be desperate to have again, but nicely refreshing. Would need to be in the mood.
