COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 An intresting beer. Aroma is reasonably hopy, however a bit minimal. Taste is A mix of some sort of caramel malt, with corriander and peppered makrel, and some grassy hops in there too, dont worry theres no fish but it just reminds me of it. Rerate: 3 judges again. Far better condition, citrusy and floural as you should expect from this hop.

(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 31 July) Colour is golden yellow with green tinges, small head. Nose is fruity with lemon and grassy hops, a bit closed. Taste is fruity and hoppy with notes of lemon, but mainly with a long bitter finish with a nice grassy hop character and nutty notes. Light to medium body and rather dry. Very nice finish. Grows on you.

dogbomb (863) - ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Cask. Light straw ale with a thick white head. Slight haze. Nose very light, like flour. Taste is hoppy, but light. A light lemon or kumquat with a touch of lychee. A little malty flour and floral finish. Very much a summerday quaffer.
