COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Pretty much a permanently available beer now. Very pale with delicious Amarillo hops, therefore earthily aromatic and highly drinkable. Yakima Valley is the area of Washington State in which the hops are grown. pron: YAKí-i-maw

Pours out of the bottle in a quite clear (with little pieces in) golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of fresh hops, citrus, grass, spruce, flowers, nuts and honey. Wonderful to drink and I specially like that fresh touch at it. Highly quaffable and enjoyable.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask handpump at FFTMC, Oxford on the KBO Christmas night out Monday 9th December 2013 Canít believe that I hadnít rated this? Anyway had two pints of this tonight, absolutely lovely. Straw coloured, excellent clarity, sparkling, it looks marvellous good temperature, small white head atop. Itís simple, itís fruity, crisp and finishes dry, the amarillo is not quite the fashionable hop it once was with new kidís on the block but itís still a corker when used in this fashion.
