Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Cask, four pint take out from the brewery shop, 2nd Oct 2010. Perfectly clear bright amber with no head. Lovely citrus and raisin nose. Good dry flavour behind a palate that is full without being too heavy. Perhaps it could do with a little more spice and quirkiness but overall a lovely pint.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2011
Cask at The Wharf. A clear, golden beer with a white head looking like it’s from a cask beer, which of course it is. Sweaty, toffee apple aroma, barnyard-ish notes too. For a moment I wondered if I was smelling some English cider. The flavor is pretty much the same, more on the citrusy side than the aroma, and with a nice citrusy, piney bitterness. A bit thin on the palate. Decent but strange, especially on the nose. Drinks easy though. 101204

This is a delightful beer. This by far was one of my favourites at the Eastbourne beer festival last year. Harveys keep on coming with very good quality ales
