COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Permanent.
The name comes from the predominant hop. Amarillo is a light and floral American hop. On its own it makes a beer that has similar qualities to a light white wine. The addition of Goldings hops add a little more spice. The result is a deliciously fragrant light session beer. Amarillo and Goldings hops.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Cask from The John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint I’m a sucker for anything with Amarillo hops but found this very pale interpretation to be let down slightly by its thin palate and aggressive bitterness overcompensating for its citrus lightness. Still plenty of positives, aroma is particularly enticing and a fine summer beer.

2.9
ManVsBeer (10467) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Cask @ The Works, Sowerby Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. Has a crisp and thin fruitiness with a small hoppiness evident. More stated in its nose than taste.

3.5
