Cask at the NWAF, Manchester. Clear gold with a thin to medium white head. Nice citrus and hop aroma. Flavour has hops but not as much Amarillo as I like, still a tasty enough brew though. Some vanilla type sweetness. Slightly grainy on the palate.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Biscuity malt with an earthy, woody background flavour then just a hint of lemony, citrus hops, could do with more, if you advertise Amarillo, let us have it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Another beer that i expected more from. Oddly-perfumed, with a bittersweet taste, edging towards dryness. Mid brown in colour, the taste does settle down, but it is quite a standard flavoured beer. The hop note is there, but itís a bit harsh on the back of the tongue. Hint ogf apples, which Iím never a huge fan of in beer.

Cask at The Lord Moon of the Mall on Whitehall. Pours amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruit. Flavor is fruit and earth. Citrus fruit - tho not zest. Mildly bitter. Goes a bit toward leather/wood with time. And always fruity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Crosse Keys. Pours a clear, dark gold with a filmy white head. Ripe citrus and toast in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, oddly roasty and smokey, some leafy bitters, some ash and wood. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Scorched earth, slight grass, citrus rind in the finish. Overall quite decent.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Gravity at Tuckerís Maltings Festival Where are Amarillo hops? Sadly not in this one. Poor aroma overall. Burnt caramel and bread in taste. Bitterness is rather lingering and unpleasant. Big disappointment.
