beer-yum (1656) - Wellington, - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 A love/hate sort of beer that I happen to like. Makes a nice change from the lingering bitterness of most of the other beers I enjoy drinking. A great way to start (and finish) a session.

jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2017
Can. Cloudy orange, off white lace. Earl grey perfumed nose, light almond, orangepeel, light yeast, medium light body, sparkly. A bit messy, not convinced of this combination.

comperchris (142) - - JUN 18, 2017
Can brewed at brewdog. Very hazy amber in colour with an off white head, slight floral nose but not much there. The addition of tea makes for a very refreshing IPA which hides the alcohol well.

3.2
Dredd (932) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2017
Deep amber pour with thin tan head. Sight citrus aroma, flavor is bread malt with some tannin and flavour presence from the tea. Interesting.

3.8

Can 330 ml from Waitrose. Floral and sweet aromas with notes of tea. Big and fluffy, long lasting eggshell-white head and clear gold-amber body (great looks!). Taste has bitterness and obvious tea notes, as well as floral sweetness. Delicious!

3.5
The_Osprey (7885) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
June 2017 - 330ml can at home in Richmond watching Planet Terror. As ’Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta’, 6.5%, BB Sep 2018. Amber orange, translucent, sparkling, dense foamy off-white head, thick lacing. Aroma is polished metal, applemint, wheat flour. Body is light, a little frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is wheat, crackers, floral, lavender, bergamot, lime peel, finishes crisp but also lingering dry and floral on the breath. Pretty interesting stuff. Maybe a touch perfumey to be something I would drink regularly.
