From cask at Euston Tap. Pours clear and golden yellow to orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and grapefruity hoppy. Smooth adn yet rather distinct. Dry, bitter, peachy and slight mango fruity. But still dry and bitter into the finish. Ends dry, bitter and yet still lingering fruity.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Cask at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 2nd July 2010. Golden amber with a line of white head. Citric sharpness but overall quite sweet with a decent malt character. Some banana bread flavours. It feels a bit in-between; it doesn’t know whether it wants to be a golen ale or a best bitter.

Creamy yeasty aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with frothy head. Complex fruity flavour. Sticky on palate. Not bad.
