Cask; Permanent.
The name comes from the predominant hop. Amarillo is a light and floral American hop. On its own it makes a beer that has similar qualities to a light white wine. The addition of Goldings hops add a little more spice. The result is a deliciously fragrant light session beer. Amarillo and Goldings hops.

Fresh amarillo nose, slightly biscuity, light earthy hop character. Good balance, though I might prefer a bit more brightness.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Aroma is hoppy bitterness, maybe a bit citrusy. Perhaps a bit watery in the mouth, yes there’s a bunch of hops, but not very interesting.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 Cask at The Flowerpot, Derby, 08-09-07 Poured light golden with a light, fresh, zesty aroma. A zippy, pithy, fresh beer that was slightly dry in the taste. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7 Had this again on Cask, handpump at the Cask & Kitchen, Pimlico, London 07.01.12 in company of Loz, Lynn, Barry, Nick & Anna Pours light gold with a white head. I found this a little thin and not really what I would expect from Durham, thugh to be fair having been drinking at Kernel and Brewdog today maybe this was being a little unfairly judged along such hoppy beasts? However I found that this really lacked a distinct hoppiness and bitternes, it was fresh and the finish was dry but the midle was rather plodding and therefore I had to re-rate and alter my opinion of this.
