Tangerine hue with a large foamy beige head to start out with, sheet lace slips down the glass. While the retention was not very good, it did regenerate admirably with a swirl to the bitter lemon end. Smell was citrusy, tea aroma is unmistakeable with a lemon-lime backdrop. Taste is appropriately tart lemon with a doughy consistency, tea-like astringency is not offensive. This beer has huge novelty appeal, curious and interesting, well done for what it is and above average refreshment value. The mouthfeel has a cleansing quality to it but a slight artificial feel as well, a saccharine element of sorts that keeps it from being an exemplary beer. Still it is far superior to those coolers out there that pretend to be what they're not. Overall, this beer experiment works just fine and I'd recommend you try it, you might well want to have this on hand for a patio or pool party this summer, it would be a big hit in mixed company; bravo to Mill St. for making the effort.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

500 ml can from LCBO into a pint glass. I picked this up on a whim, feeling like something a bit different.

Appearance- Hazy, dark golden color, kind of like a darker hefeweizen. Impressive 1.5 fingers of head with great retention. Leaves a creamy white head, with a nice fluffy cap. Good lacing on glass.

Smell - Iced Tea, Lemon, Other citrus, maybe a hint of orange, oh and did I mention lemon?

Taste - It tastes like what it says it is. Crossed between lemon iced teas and beer, but not in a sickly sweet sort of way. Again lemon and maybe orange peel in there.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is noticeable, but this works since I think this is best served very cold. Very nice and refreshing and not too thin tasting.

Overall - Very enjoyable and not overly sweet. Perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day and plenty of flavor available as well.

Tall boy can. I was fairly convinced this would be horrible, but it's not that bad. This is not to say that it's particularly good. If I hadn't known this was 'lemon tea' I might not have noticed those flavors, but they are definitely there albeit subtle. The tea is in the initial taste while the finish is a standard, somewhat aqueous lager.

Pours a clear gold colour with a nice chunky head that quickly dissipated into nothing, leaving behind no lace. Smells of iced tea, lemon, and wheat beer. Apparently, they used a blend of orange pekoe and earl grey to make this beer. I could taste the earl grey. Reminded me of when I drank earl grey tea as a kid because of Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek. Strong lemon aroma, with some grainy malts and tea leaves. Tastes a little stronger than it smells. Like someone mixed in lemon iced tea with a rather boring hefeweizen. I could see myself drinking this on a hot summers day after mowing the lawn. Then again, I could also have an iced tea after mowing the lawn as well. Would I drink it again? If it were offered. Would I buy it again? No.
