UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 A Mes rate: Bottle at Ealing Beer Festival.
Amber brown with a thin beige head that comes back easily with a swill. Nothing unsusal just some glorious Amarillo with an excellent malt base. Really good fruity notes. Lovely dry finish, very drinkable. Really good stuff.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2008
(Bottled, 0.75l) Very hazy amber with a medium, lacy and quite lasting head. Fresh Amarillo aroma with caramely malt, but also some ashy "homebrew" feel - a bit like Nøgne IPA, with less fruitiness. The same solventy "homebrewness" continues in the flavor, along with a solid malty base, and aromatic-floral hopping. Finishes dry, bitter and mildly ashy. Medium-bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. Very nice for a 4.5% brew, despite the unclean homebrew feel.

Bottle@Home. Grassy, fruity and floral aroma. Light amber color, beige head, good lace. Light fruity, floral, grassy, malty. Little thin, could need some body. Refreshing and flavorful.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Draught Good yellowish, very fine head, leaving some lace over fully hazy amber-straw beer. And now for Amarillo jumping out of the glass, with a background of slight malt sweet, and dry hop bales finish. Very good nose. Soft citrussy hops in the taste, with lemonpeel, grapefruit and many yeasty esters. Thick, yeasty-creamy MF, medium bodied. Sample maybe too shaken (newly opened keg). Good, very aromatic beer, but ending a bit thin in the palate.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle. [After party @ Papsoe, thanks buddy] Average creamy white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Light cloudy golden color. The aroma of Amarillo came out with notes of dusty mild pine, apricot and light grape. Over the palate came lovely dusty sweet hoppy feel. Mild fruity and caramel notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light to moderated sweet and light bitter flavor. Dry and dusty hoppy like sweet apricot finish. Quit nice.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Corked bottle at Ølfestival 2008, Århus
Hazy deep blond color. The aroma shows initially a powerful american hop, then elderflowers too. Dry and quite thin mouthfeel, too simple. Strong bitterness, with some good hop oils.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Light golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped (fruity) with light notes of malt. The flavour has a lot of nice, fruity hops, citrus, pine & spruce, mango, a nice bitterness and a delicious caramel with light sweetness. It’s a beauty of a beer – with a LOT of flavour in few %!!
