Burnt Orange in colour, Brewed with American Hops, this gives the beer floral and spicy notes. Initially soft on the plate, the flavour develops to that of burnt oranges and a pleasant herbal taste.

Gravity at Tucker’s 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.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2012
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.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Cask at the Manchester & County (JDW), Manchester, England.
Clear amber colour with tiny off-white head. Fruity woody malty aroma with mild English hops. Fruity English style hops, some caramel sweetness and woody maltiness in flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Good fruity Ale.

RichardW (1764) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2011
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 it’s a bit harsh on the back of the tongue. Hint ogf apples, which I’m never a huge fan of in beer.

imdownthepub (11475) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2011
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.

bhensonb (12585) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
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.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
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.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2011
Cask handpull, The Felix, Nuneaton. Brassy gold with a white top. Hay and mellow lemony orange peel aroma. Gentle biscuit character; good soft condition, orange tang, digestives. Not much Amarillo happening. Wet dough afters. Disappointing.
