330ml bottle from Utobeer, London:
Light copper with a thumb sized head that is a foamy white before roughly halving in size.

Biscuit malts and citrus notes make up the smell initially, along with a slightly astringent aroma and some fruits around the middle that consist mainly of orange and citrus ones. There is some caramel towards the end.

Caramel malts and a slightly sweet taste kick things off along with some biscuit malts from the nose and a light, earthy taste that is coupled with hints of fruit as well.

Light medium with a bittersweet mouthfeel and a slight citrus tang. The beer is smooth for the most part and leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Not a bad amber ale and one that had a nice balance to it between the biscuit malts and the bittersweet flavours than became more pronounced as the beer had time to settle.

A: Actually pours kind of red, more of a coppery red with a creamy head.
S: Hmm nope.
T: Tons of toffee and a little strawberry?. Very malty.
M: Good carbonation with a nice crisp finish.
O: Was excited by the name, suggesting a beautiful Yakima hop character but it's not here. Maybe it's an old bottle and the hops have dropped.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours dark amber with a quickly fading white head.
Nose shows some bready biscuity malt along with soft earthy and spicy hops.
Similar flavours, mainly toasty and bready malt with just a hint of spicy hops.
Carbonation is a little high.
Could be a bit more daring.

Pours more amber than golden. Good head and lacing.

Smell is orange rind, Grand Marnier, chalky, thin toffee.

Taste is more like a doppelbock or musty English ale. Not really getting the US hops here.

Mouthfeel features a mounting bitterness from mid to back palate. Toffee in the finish.

More of a traditional English-style beer with the US hops adding more of a twist to the beer rather than being the main star.

Still, I found this beer somewhat disappointing considering the pull of the "Yakima" name.

Bought this as usual at the Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Poured it into my Palm snifter.

Pours a small fine head that reduces soon to a thin layer leaving only little lacing. Body shows lots of fine carbonation and very clear light amber colour.

Smell of citric hops and darker malts.

Taste follows the nose with citric hoppiness, some bitterness and also little of a slightly roasted malt. Additionally there is a sourness that reminds of a mineral water.

Very strongly carbonated. Feels like like a mineral water like San Pellegrino and its brothers. I wouldn't call it watery though. Highly refreshing without being too burpy.

Very drinkable and highly enjoyable for such low ABV. It reminds me strongly of mineral water. Maybe the connection comes from my choice of glassware, but this could be a Palm beer spritzer. This is the coldest days of the year as the Grachten are freezing here in Amsterdam, but this beer makes a really good thirst quencher on a hot day with its low alcohol content. Definitely better than your mass produced pilsner. I think I will try that again in approximately 6 months...
