3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve always had a thing with Amarillos, ever since I first encountered them in my first Gumballhead: it taste like a cat box. Don’t ask how I know. Research online says tasters should refer to the smell as "durian," after the stinky fruit. It’s my job instead to convince people my description means it’s a good thing. What gets me on this topic is this beer, with a hazy orange Pale Ale color and a thin head. My impression is that the, um "durian," but a trail this strong will dwindle as the beer ages a little. A slightly creamy malt taste helpsmitigate the sensation slightly, leaving a more lemony citrus punch at the end.
