Tea. Earl Grey. Cold.

Ok, I'm done.
So yeah, it's a nice beer.
The tea flavours coming through I initially found to be a bit... odd, but when I finally parsed it through my head I decided that it worked, it was a really pleasant drinking beer. Quite high on the alcohol content though so I wouldn't recommend making a session of it.
There is a nice fruitiness on the nose that just carries subtle hints of the tea flavour, it's smooth drinking bordering on slightly dry (not saying that's a bad thing) and as you can see from the picture it gives a pretty vibrant serve.
It's definitely one to bring on a sampling day with friends, or when playing a gumshoe detective on the holodeck.
