3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’10, gravity dispensed. Reddish copper with white head. The first thing you notice with this is how strongly bitter it is, cheek drawing, lip pursing bitterness with a dry malty background. The Amarillo’s give hints of the wild west. A decent brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (handpump) at the Roebuck Inn (JD Wetherspoon), Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Amber / gold colour with lasting fluffy white head. Wouldn’t have really said there was much red in the colour. Excellent lively condition. Some biscuity malts in the aroma. Very lemony on the palate. Clean, firm mouthfeel with a persistent dry, moderately bitter aftertaste. Extremely drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A quite dark blonde colour with a pillowy white head. Aroma of peppery hops, caramel and malt. Quite malty flavour also with quite prominent bitterness and a dry finish. Just OK.
