2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Draught at airport. Slightly resinous hoppiness in nose leads to a slightly thin-bodied, pretty average pale ale. Earthy and medium bitterness, this brew could have used slightly more girth. Still, a nice BBQ beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden color with an orange hue and no head. Citrusy hop nose and flavor with crisp grainy undertones. Moderate carbonation. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden body with then white head. A very hoppy and grassy aroma. Flavors of spicey hops and citrus with a grassy bitter after taste. An overall ok pale ale.

On further tasting this beast has taken on a much less abrasive bitterness. Amarillos are much more pronounced then they ever were before. Still bitter...still attractive, just more so.
Nothing too impressive. Not subtle either. (hoppy) More malt balance please. Only slightly sweet. Cascades for aroma, fuggles for bittering methinks. Earthy and slightly spicy. Niceley and subtely carbonated.
