Mill Street Brewery Lemon Tea Beer – American Pale Lager at 5% ABV

Mill Street Brewery Lemon Tea Beer American Pale Lager at 5% ABV (On tap at Mill Street Brewpub YYZ)

Appearance: cloudy pale amber with one fat finger of creamy eggshell head, good retention and heavy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet lemon iced tea, light wheat. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (4/5)

Surprisingly drinkable for a fairly sweet beer. The hop presence is is fairly low, but it interacts well with the black tea flavour to give an overall bitterness that’s more emphatic than it would otherwise have been. It reminds me of sweet iced tea (but the real brewed stuff, not the cheap fake stuff). (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
