Hazy amber beer. Little white head. Light palate, a little crisp and a little dry. A trace of toffee malt on the nose. Soft toffee malt, a trace of pear and aniseed. Creamy dry malt. Nicely joined up, a deft little beer from Pitfield.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO’s "Raise the Roof" tasting, 31st July 2010. Light brown with a bit of head. Strange spicy nose that I just can’t place, along with some heady paint notes. I didn’t like it and it was a let down after the Pure Gold.

Bottle. Dark brown with a cream foam. Aromas are rich and fruity, malty with berries and a mellow floral character. Also has chocolate and spices. Flavours are soft malts with lots of chocolate and berries. Spices towards the finish with decent bitterness and a nice level of warming alcohol. A good malty beer.
