On Tap at the Brewery
Amarillo Hopping makes its presence well known in this deep amber Pale Ale. Small head continually refreshed all the way to the bottom of the pint. Crystal malts gives a middle sweetish point, but this beer is really bracketed by the orangey citrusy hops that start and finish on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with an off white head.
Aroma is a slight malt with a strong citrus floral nose like a mild IPA.
Flavor is medium floral front with a bit of roasted malt behind it(just a hint)
no real after taste pretty clean. pretty good for and American style pale ale but would be weak and watered down for a and IPA so good for it’s style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clean and crisp tasting with good lace and a thick, foamy head. Caramel colours and notes which give it a sweetness that is nicely balanced out by the hops. Very tasty overall but I feel it could have used even MORE hops to live up to its name.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Amber pour, off-white head. Aroma - plenty of hops! Flowers + caramel. Hoppy taste, slight citrus flavour and some caramel, though I don’t know if I’m just smelling that. A little bitter on the back end, but not unpleasant. My favorite Canadian beer!

6pack of bottles bought at the LCBO.
This is an interesting beer. I seem to have different tastebuds than the others, because I find it to be citrusy, more specific, lemony in both the taste and the smell. Of course the main thing that jumps out is hops, but I pick up on the citrus big time with it. Pours a clear amber color with a short lived head. The taste is.. again.. citrus/lemon, caramel, and hops. And I also agree with what another poster wrote with that it could use even MORE hops to balance out that citrus flavor I detect so much.. Either way, its refreshing and definitely makes you say "Hmmmmmmmm" after you’ve had your first sip. Not something I buy all the time, but have purchased it a few times now and would buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
May 20, 2011; 330mL bottle, refrigerated but warmed, BBD: None,
Strong fruity and floral (highly appetizing) aroma of mango, citrus, alpha
hops with a slight sweetness. Pours a very deep copper-chestnut with a puffy 1.5" off-white tanned head. Nice active carbonation with steady stream of small bubbles. Head stays there for the duration initially hiding the very nice lace. Taste isn’t as strong or impressive as the aroma. Fruity mango and citrus withe some floral to start with malty sweetness with a bit of caramel. Bitterness isn’t abrupt but lingers for a long time. Quite a light, slightly watery body with nice carbonated mouthfeel; almost
lager like. Not what I expected or hoped. Not nearly as refreshing as a lager nor satisfying like an ale. Solid beer but the taste doesn’t match up to the aroma and the body is a little light. I guess that’s what they meant when they said almost pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden colour and good head. Hoppy citrus aroma. You taste the hops right away but it doesn’t necessarily take over. Theres a nice citrus and malty flavour, but the hops is the star of the show. Good if you want something with a bit of a hoppy kick but not too much. Nice balance of flavours. Enjoy!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cor âmbar escuro com tons caramelo. Cristalina com espuma levemente bege, de média/baixa formação e baixa persistência. Pouco lacing;
Aroma pouco intenso de laranja e toranja com nuances de caramelo;
Sabor de início de caramelo que evolui para amargor bastante comportado (almost pale ale). Retrogosto levemente amargo. Boa drinkability.
