3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Cloudy medium amber pour with a thin white frothy head. Served cool and recently bottled. Only a hint of the hops in the aroma. Given the name I expected the Amarillo hops to have the dominant flavour. It's there, but I think the yeast has a bigger say! What peppery bitterness there is comes up front and the dies away quite quickly. This is a nice refreshing beer though and comes at the right price point to ensure its popularity. I'll certainly drink this again.

Sweet creamy banana bread and citrus aroma, unlike any I can remember. A milky gold and orange with loads of sediment floating around. A cream citrus tart taste. Has a smooth and tart feel. Pleasant and refreshing. Unlike anything else I can remember.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle split with Gyhallmanti and Richardvv94. Appearance: hazy golden with low white head. Aroma: banana, coriander, clove, citrus. Taste: medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of coriander, orange and spices. Palate: light to medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. I expected a more distinquished taste and bouquet, because of the used Amarillo hops. Instead of easy drinkable I’d rather say kind of boring.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour is golden dark brown with thick head, aroma faint and simple sweet and hoppy. Taste is mainly sugary with disappointingly weak hops and yeast. Almost tasteless. Aftertaste is bland, sugar flavors hanging, waiting for something to happen. For nothing. Could be in place on a sunny beach, server freezing-cold. better avoided otherwise
