500ml bottle, bought at Sheringham by my Dad, drunk 30/06/13. Fuggles & Cascade. Barley from North Norfolk coast. Bit of a lively pour. Good white head, lasting well. Cloudy gold. Med-High carb. Aroma - Quite a nice, strongly cereally malt, bit yeasty and spicy-peppery, citrus hop. Taste - Lightly sweet, good pale malt, caramel, with good, tangy, mid citrus hop finish, lightly bitter & drier. Some nice, soft, juicy citrus flavour. Slightly yeasty & slightly wheaty. Lightly bitter, citrus aftertaste. Med body, rounded & soft. A nice, very drinkable, lightly citrussy golden ale, with a solid malt body.

BlackHaddock (3642) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Gravity poured pint at the CAMRA AGM in Norwich on 20 Apr 2013. Very pale golden brew with not a lot of head on show. Hoppy with a citrus base, nothing too strong: refreshing without testing your taste buds or sense of smell too greatly. Pleasant enough brew, but lacks a punch and body-depth in my eyes.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the Wig & Pen, Norwich, "Post-Xmas Crawl Part 2", 28th Dec 08. Clear golden amber. Lots of citrus flavours. Dry & refreshing but not unbalanced. Good palate - very quaffable. Would have been even better to have been drinking it in summertime.

imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Cask conditioned at Norwich Beer Fest ’08. Gold with white head. Particularly fresh tasting beer, not surprising I suppose as the Fest had only been open half an hour. Quite hoppy, bittersweet and tangy fruity. Quite reasonable and it looks like it is better in cask than bottle.
