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

SlackerMads (2356) - DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
Cask. Yellow with light haze and a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Mild nose with hay and dry flowers. Flavour opens a bit more, but still fairly mild. Citrus, flowers, hay, light sweet tropical fruits. Medium body, light sweet, medium bitter. Long dry finish. Nice enough to drink and easy to forget.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Cask at the Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint. A good looking pale amber beer with a smooth, white head. Not much to the nose but hints of cut grass and hay. Taste has well balanced slightly grassy sweetness and long dry, slightly resinous finish. Some pine in flavour. I was surprised to find there were Amarillo hops in this as it lacks their typical puckering citrus punch. That’s not to say it wasn’t enjoyable though.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Gravity at Bardfest 2015. Golden with a frothy white head. not much in the way of aroma. Slightly skunky perhaps. The taste is lightly tropical - a bit of pineapple. Pretty thin, but OK.

tdtm82 (1404) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Cask, Railway Tavern, Chelmsford, 5th January 2015. Nice golden appearance with a good solid head. Soft piney notes and tropical fruits on the aroma as well as some hey and straw as well. Proper session stuff this. Smooth on my palate and dry and fruity on the finish. Can drink a lot of this but I don’t expect anything else from the mighty Crouch Vale.

yngwie (15764) - 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
