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

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2014
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 (9589) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask handpump at FFTMC, Oxford on the KBO Christmas night out Monday 9th December 2013 Can’t believe that I hadn’t 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. It’s simple, it’s fruity, crisp and finishes dry, the amarillo is not quite the fashionable hop it once was with new kid’s on the block but it’s still a corker when used in this fashion.

Cask at Bow Bar. Pale straw color, translucent. Lovely hop nose. Grapefruit explosion, I love it. This one is all citrus but does it well.

Half pint, cask at Charlie’s Bar. Low bubbly head that remains at the top of a clear golden coloured body. Plain fruit hoppy aroma. Fresh hoppy taste with a lemony impact. Mid-dry, sharp bitter ending. Quite well bodied. Enjoying (Copenhagen, 23.03.2013).

Cask @ Cask & Pub Kitchen
Aroma has fruity hops, some vanilla and resin. Flavour has fruity hops, some resiny malt and touch of berries. Quite good for this ABV, although the berry notes disturb a bit.
