Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 21st April 2010 (33rd Birthday drinks). Hazy light gold with a line of white head. Citrus nose, light fruity taste of white wine grapes and some berries. Soft palate that hides the strength well. Pretty good.
