3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear brown/dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is berry-fruity with a floral and caramel note, lovely. Dry fruity and floral amarillo flavour with a dry caramel malt base. Dry bitter and floral finish. Flavour is a bit of a let down compared to the aroma.8-4-6-3-13=3.5
From tap at the brewpub as Amarillo X-Mas, thanks to Grovlam. Pours slight hazy amber with little lacing orange head head. Aroma is classic amarillo with a solid malt base. Flavour has notes of wood nicely blending in with a soft malt base of caramel malt. Decent bite in the finish from bitterhops.6-4-7-4-14=3.5

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. An unclear red-brown beer with a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and spicy combined with notes of grass and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light spicy notes of cinnamon combined with stronger notes of caramel. The body is a bit thin - not much residual sugars left, which for me is a drawback.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(On tap) Beautiful, warm, nutty brown with a creamy, lacing, beige head. Fat, lightly citrusy hop aroma. Medium body with some sweet caramel notes and then a weak but unmistakably whiff of peaty smoke and a discreet, ashy edge. Rather hoppy finish. They call this an American Red Ale - sort of an Irish Ale with American hops. 140707

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy red-amber color. The Amarillo gives a very nice fruity hop aroma. Medium body strength, but good caramel flavor complemented by the very good hop; the final, even if well hopped, tends to be a bit thinner. Very pleasant beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2008 On tap at the brewpub. Clear, amber body, with a small, off-white head that diminishes rather quickly. Fruity and quite piney nose with a fine maltyness to balance it. Some roasted notes as well. Quite hoppy flavor, with fruityness, pines and some resin. Medium body. Fruity finish. Quite mild and dangerously quaffable beer with a lovely fruityness. Rating: 7-4-7-3-14-3.5. (071006)
Bottle. A copper/amber colored beer with a small, off-white to beige head. Rich malty nose with beefstock and sweetness. Pinecones and a fruity touch too. Sweet and malty flavor too, with caramel and beefstock. Piney and fruity too, getting more pronounced towards the end. Almost astringently bitter, slightly sticky, and full-bodied in the mouth. Lasting finish. Better than I remembered, but with a quite similar score. (080829)
