Growler from Liquorland Fitzroy. Pours a deep copper with a mediums sized head. Big aroma of Earl Grey, along with some peach. Taste is a big whack of Earl Grey, a bit fruity, a bit malty, high bitterness. I like the tea there, but Im a tea drinker. Definitely an interesting brew but it also works well. Definitely give it a try if you see this.

From bottle (brewed in Australia) into shaker. Pours a rustic amber with frothy white head and aroma of bergamot and bath salts. An interesting combo of beer and Earl Grey that seems to work and makes for a dry almost soapy finish

Sampled @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. A slightly hazy deep golden beer with a mid sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of tea, Green plants, mild citrusy hops. Taste of green tea, herbs, citrus hops, nice.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 Can from Asda. Cloudy, brown, off-white head. Aroma is all citrus and bergamot. Taste is very floral- I don’t like Earl Gray tea but it’s not bad in beer form!
