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: YAK’-i-maw

yngwie (13945) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014
Cask, at the Wharf. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Citrusy, peachy aroma with a faint malty touch. It’s medium bodied and smooth, quite dry, with flavors of citrus peel and peaches. A fine bitterness too, dealing easily with the light malty sweetness. Lasting fruity finish with peaches and grapefruit. A tasteful and easy drinkable beer I could have a few of. 141026

SzopPiwosz (156) - - AUG 27, 2014
Piana: Bardzo drobnopęcherzykowa, sztywna, beżowa. Warstwa około 5 mm - nalane niemal po brzeg szklanki. Kolor: Klarowne bursztynowe. Zapach: Intensywnie kwiatowy, owocowe estry, nieco przypieczonego biszkoptu. Smak: Bardzo rześkie, owocowo-kwiatowe. Dość wytrawne. Tekstura: Wybitnie gładkie, kremowe. Lekko cierpkie. Nasycenie: W zasadzie zerowe. Goryczka: Średnio-wysoka. Pijalność: Ekstremalnie wysoka. Drugie było własnie Yakima Gold. Mam takie wrażenie, że nawet jeśli okazałoby się paskudne, to ja i tak bym się nim zachwycał. A to z takiego powodu, że pierwszy raz dane mi było przebywać w pubie na terenie Zjednoczonego Królestwa, a tym bardziej pić piwo z nalewaka z ręczną pompą. Pubu specjalnie nie szukałem. Akurat byliśmy przy Oxford Street, pubów było dość sporo, rozglądałem się jedynie za napisami w stylu "cask ales" czy "real ales". [...] Piwo wywarło na mnie piorunujące wrażenie, choć teraz z perspektywy czasu wiem, że okoliczności przyrody na pewno mu w tym pomogły. Na uwagę zasługiwał na pewno bardzo intensywny, jaśminowy zapach uzupełniony brzoskwiniowymi estrami oraz fantastyczna konsystencja - praktycznie zerowe nasycenie i niezwykłą kremowość budowały fantastyczną pijalność tego piwa.
