Navers (258) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2017
Pours golden, very small head. Aroma is dominated by bergamot, lemony tea, with some sweet and herbal hints. Taste is also full of tannins, juicy and zesty tannins, tart, semi sour, herbal and mildly hoppy. I am a tea maniac so this beer was just perfect, refreshing experience for me, that I want to repeat.

PabloZab (1718) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 01.2019). Hazy golden colour. Thin white head. Aroma is malty, sweet like candy with delicate note of tea. Sweet-candy flavor is balanced by medium herbal bitterness with delicate eral grey note in aftertaste so the finish is quite tannic.Beer is quite light like for 8 ABV, fresh and for sure has characteristic candy-tea taste.

GBBF Day 2. Bottle shared with Keen. Light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry and has good fine carbonation. Big Earl Grey - Bergamot citrus. Dry finish. Does what it says on the tin. Refreshing!

jooilakon (291) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Bottle 330 ml from HonestBrew. Aromas are rich with notes of tropical fruit and tea. Hazy golden body and cream white head. Taste is rich and bitter with Earl Grey and fruitiness. The Earl Grey is very prominent in this DIPA. Very enjoyable.

tricksta_p (5224) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2017
From tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Aroma is lots of herbal bergamot, hops, nettles, soft citrus, and malt. Strongest Earl Grey I've ever tasted in a beer, it's intense. Flavour is light sweet with a bitter finish. Body is above medium. Quite tasty if you dig a healthy dose of herbal tea in your IPA.

MelvinKalksma (1764) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2017 Aroma: 6 Slightly/medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, tea, hops and citrus. Appearance: 4 Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head. Taste/Palate: 7/3 Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends medium bitter and dry with tea, hops and citrus. Overall: 13 This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. There is so much Black tea in here, that it makes all the other flavours go away. Just a slight trace of sweet fruit, but nothing else really. Great appearance though.

simontomlinson (627) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2017
White bubbly head on a hazy light copper coloured body.
Soapy malt aroma.
Medium bodied. Clean on the palate - cloying on the back.
Tea! I love the beers with tea tastes & this definitely has it. Bitter pith, grapefruit & under ripe fruit.
God one.

Maris (1596) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2017 From a 330ml bottle on 23/8/2017. Pours a hazy golden with a small head. Has a relatively slight aroma of raspberry cordial and Earl Grey. The taste follows suit - seriously a combo a raspberry cordial sweetness, some light bergamot, and a fairly assertive dash of hops at the back. Fullish body with moderate carbonation. This is an odd, bordering on crazy brew, which is actually pretty intense. I liked the Gunnamatta, which has more Earl Grey in it for mine. But this really grew on me as it went down.
