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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

330ml bottle. Pours a semi murky gold with white head. Thick hoppy nose with lots of floral notes. Big resinous body with lots of hops, tea, and sweet fruits. Absolutely delicious!

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 This beer is what I was looking for when first trying gunnamatta. Strong aroma and firm mouthfeel. Pours thick and cloudy off tap and really satisfied as I do love a earl grey

Bottle shared at Chris & Ruth´s House. A slightly hazy pale golden beer with a small most good lasting white head. Aroma of green tea leaves, grassy hops, yeast, floral bitter hops. Taste of intense bitter grassy and floral hops, earl grey tea, leaes, long bitter finish.

Pours hazy mahogany with low white head. Aroma of earl grey tea, citrus, yup, that’s it. Nose is like a cup of tea that’s gone cold. Not sure whether to celebrate the effort or slam the absolute atrociousness of a beer that smells like a fucking cuppa. Taste is mellow to rich bitter, and yes, fucking earl grey again. Scratch any earlier doubts. If you love the Union Jack and sing along to Rule Britannia, by all means, you’ll enjoy this. For me, it’s basically a beer made with inflated rent, wall-to-wall carpets in the bathroom and fire doors every three yards, dry hopped with a sizeable helping of rain and over politeness.
