4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ BBF 2011. Hazy copper pour, thick solid white to gray (?) head. Aroma is very fruity, full of wonderful bergamot, like good earl gray tea, with some spices. Flavor is very fruity, sweet with nice floral bitter hops. Nice balance. Very drinkable. But the Amarillo is almost gone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark toffee/amber color. Big white head. Little lacing. Huge fruity aroma. Smells like fruity pebbles and hops. Tastes pretty much the same. Sweet, hoppy, bit of sugar and malt. Creamy. A subtle smokiness. Too fruity.

Draught at borefts 2011. Loved the nose of this beer. Truly reminded me of Earl Grey tea with a bit of lemon, which is of course present due to the Amarillo hops. First taste was really nice, and so was the second sip. After that it went downhill, I would not finish an entire bottle of this. Nice try, but no thanks...

On tap at BBF’11. Hazy orange amber colour, off white head. Aroma of lemon cheesecake, more of that, and citrus. Flavour is sweet, light malty, biscuit, lemon cheesecake, lots of that, orange peel, bittersweet finish. Medium bodied. Prefer the regular Amarillo.
