From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully gone head. Fruity hoppy aroma with a light spice note. Bitter and mild nutty flavoured. Dry and towards slight spiced. Bitter into the far finish. Smooth and easy. Light fruity from the back of the nose.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2008
Cask. Clear dark amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is subtle, hint of spicy hops. A bit of soap, but in all a nice enough flavour.

joe19612 (1924) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2008. Pours a amber colour with a thin white head. The aroma, has a hint of fruit. The flavour was all malt. Not a good effort.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2008
Cask at The Bishops Arms Luleå 4 Aug 08. Golden brown colored. An OK head that soon dwindled. Inviting aroma of caramel. Dry overall impression: Flavor of dry fruits and a dry aftertaste. Caramel in the finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. So how good is Shepherd Neame’s relaunched/rebranded beer, being promoted heavily at GBBF 08? The answer is not very good. It’s a lively light amber brew with no much head. The aroma is weak and the flavour is bland. Sorry, but it is rubbish beer. Now 3.5% also.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Re-rate in it’s 3.4% incarnation Cask at GBBF 2009. Gold, thinnish off white head. My god, it has some hop on the aroma, EKG I’m guessing. A bit watery in mouth, but that will be the low ABV, no real condition, some hop, flowery hop on finish 7 3 5 2 10 2.6/5.0
