Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze in Barton. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Pleasant muted citrus sweet hoppiness in the nose, quite bitter and dry in the mouth with some hints of chalkiness and faint citrus notes, lingering hop bitterness in the finish that again is quite dry and faintly fruity citric.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Cask at Kingston BF, 28th June 2008, with renffisch. Bright yellow with a summery aroma of honey, lemons and floral hops. When you take a sip though, things go downhill. There’s some bitterness but it soon begins to taste like weak fairy liquid. Unbalanced, this is a bit of a dog’s breakfast of a beer.

Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow. Pale gold colour. Fresh as a daisy and just as floral. Brash, spicy hops. Intensely aromatic. Lychees and grapefruit in the flavour. Lots of bite on the finish. Just superb!.
