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.

Cask. Light straw ale with a thick white head. Slight haze. Nose very light, like flour. Taste is hoppy, but light. A light lemon or kumquat with a touch of lychee. A little malty flour and floral finish. Very much a summerday quaffer.

Its a shame that the brewery couldn’t use these American hops in an American style. Powerful hops relegated to an afterthought in its taste profile. Watery, light funk aroma and a bit bitter. Could have been so much more.

Cask at CPK, London on 21st January 2012. Golden amber with off white head and plenty of lace. Hoppy aroma, grassy citric and a ta soapy. Fruity liquid then a cheesy touch before citric-led finish. Light mouthfeel and body.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Cask at the White Horse, 12th July 2008 with renffisch. Yellow with a small head. Sports a predominantly citrus aroma with a leathery hint. In the mouth it is your typical citrus refreshing golden ale with a sharp finish. OK, but not a style I love.
