Broken Goblet Bubba’s Tea Bag

Posted: April 29, 2015 in American Pale Ale, Broken Goblet Brewing Company, Reviews

One Sunday, the other half and I decided to go explore Pennsylvania and hit up some breweries that were open. Our first stop was Broken Goblet, which was really nice. Their tasting room had really nice decor and we ended up getting a sampler. This was the beer that we liked the most. Plus, we liked the little growler, so it had to come home with us. We also hit up Neshaminy Creek and Forgotten Boardwalk. Anyways, let’s see how this one was.

ABV: 5.9%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “CONVENIENTLY LOCATED IN BUCKS COUNTY, PA. WE HAVE BUILT A BREWERY & BREWPUB FOR BEER LOVERS, WHO ARE READY FOR A TWIST ON THE TRADITIONAL TASTING. BROKEN GOBLET BREWING – LET US BREAK YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON HOW YOU EXPERIENCE CRAFT BEER … BECAUSE BROKEN CAN BE BEAUTIFUL.”

Random: I didn’t have any beers at Neshaminy that I hadn’t sampled before. It was somewhat disappointing.

This beer poured with less than one finger of white head. It dissipated instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a slightly cloudy, pink color with high carbonation visible. The nose was really fragrant with berries and lots of black tea. This is one of the first times that I’ve had a beer that used tea as an adjunct and I could pick it up in the nose. The taste started with floral notes, but followed up with a lot of tea and then berries. There was slight bitterness from the hops, but tea was definitely the star of this one. The body was medium thickness with high carbonation and went down really easily.The finish was lengthy and floral with the same tea note. This beer was really good. I wish it came in a format other than growlers, because it would definitely be in my beer fridge a lot. Even the other half liked it.
