2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep orange colour, between fizzy and frothy carbonation. Pleasant bitter smell of, well, Amarillo. Bitterness is also present in the taste - although some metal and some water makes it not as rich as one could have hoped. Overall, though, very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kopparfärgat lätt beslöjad öl med vitt ganska lätt skum. Doft av citrus med dragning mot apelsin och en hint av tallbarr. Smaken är en bra balans mellan malt och karamellsötma och humlebeska.

330ml bottle, many thanks to Garlic of Doom! Pours a deep, reddish amber with lasting white head. Ticks all the hoppy, fruity, citrussy boxes required of Amarillo. Decent easy-drinking APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear orange body with a scarce head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose is mild with sweet notes of berries, flowers and rapeseed. The nose is quite different from my experiences with amarillo. Taste is sweet at first which backs up the hefty, lingering bitterness. Fairly soft carbonation and ample palate. Quite nice and well balanced hoppy beer.
