Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2011

Rune (11355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2011
Taster, draught, as Amarillo, at the brewpub. 4.3% abv according to the beer menu. The bartender said that this was the same as Is This The Way. Unclear, yellow-gold body, no head, spotty lacing on the glassware. Citric hoppy aroma. Bittersweet citrus fruits in flavour, along with a dash of earthy malts and herbs towards the ending. Oily palate. Average, or perhaps below par, for the style (Oslo, 27.04.2011).

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Tap sampler at Schouskjelleren. Labeled "Amarillo Pale Ale" and ABV 4,1%, but like larsga, I’m assuming it’s the same.Cloudy, pale, straw yellow with a white, creamy head. Looks more like a weissen than a pale ale. Excellent lacing. Cat piss, light malts on the nose. Sweet, bitter and a little spicy. Watery, light to medium body. Dry finish. Medium carbonation. "Ooh, I’ll kill that cat!"

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 27, 2011
Medium white head. Hazy opaque pale yellow body. Mealy citric papery aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweetish papery mango and citrus taste with herbal earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Not too fresh. Dry-sweetish citric resiny mango aftertaste with fruity wooden notes. Nice, but the good parts rather drown in the paper. (0.4l draft at brewpub.)
Earlier Rating: 10/16/2010 Total Score: 2.9
Small white head. Muddy pale yellow body. Mealy papery aroma with sulphur notes. Dry citric papery resiny taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, muddy mouthfeel. Dry papery fruity citric aftertaste with lingering mealy notes. Not good. Basically, they sold it before it had finished fermenting. (0.4l draft at brewpub. Will rerate later when they have things under more control. This was labelled just "Amarillo" and 4.1%, but assume it’s the same.)

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - MAR 25, 2011
Cloudy golden look, average white head. Fresh herbal aroma with grass and spicy notes. The aroma is similar to a wheat beer. Medium sweetness, very light sourness in the taste, some subtle citrus notes. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation and a hopy and lightly bitter finish.

bergstaden (2458) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Hazy golden with a white head - hoppy aroma with hints of citrus - some malt in the body and with hop bitterness with hionts of citrus/grapefruit - good and drinkable

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2010
On tap at the brewpub - the 4.1 version. Cloudy yellow. FAirly light beer. There is a vague feeling of burned rubber tyres that diminishes the enjoyment. Otherwise fine Amarillo hops. A session beer, not intrusilvely bold.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2010
From tap@the brewpub. Foggy, very pale straw colored. Small white top. Grassy and citrus-zesty hop aroma. A scent of dry and sharpish grainy pale malts. Not really thin, but very light. Dry, restrained malt body. Lemony and grassy hop flavor. Clean and tight hop bitterness. Fruity hop linger in a short, bone dry finish. Would probably improve with a fuller body. But overall a very referhing one. One for ’hot town, summer in the city’.

espenra (996) - Kurland, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2010
On tap. Pale, yet hazy light golden colour. Aroma is slightly hoppy with notes og grass. Flavour is a bit thin. Hoppy with notes of citrus, grass and water. Some grains as well. Short and thin aftertaste.

daje (4123) - NORWAY - OCT 2, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Pours a nice golden color with a somewhat messy head. Rich hop aroma with a soft finish that leaves very little bitterness in your mouth. A solid starter at this new microbrewery!
