A clear light amber beer, an off-white head that leaves lots of lacing.

The smell is very, very floral and citric. Lots of summer flowers, fresh grass and grapefruit. Nearly overpowering.

The taste is full of hop, bitter floral and grassy and sour citric notes.

Medium carbonated, creamy mouthfeel.

A beer to slowly enjoy, with or without good company. Very soothing.

A: Pours a tremendously clear amber bronze color in my Riedel glass. Nice bubbly thick head which seems to dissappear too quickly, but it doesn't at all ruin my tasting.

S: Oh, I know that smell - and I love it! Great Amarillo aroma, very fresh and floral. I get grapefruit and lychees, light exotic fruits and a very slight but pleasant biscuity maltiness. There's absolutely a resin kind of thing happening here by the way

T: Mmm, very clean and thrist quenching. Much less hop flavor than aroma, but delicous nonetheless. Perfectly balanced, more malt character on the tongue than the nose. Caramel malts and grapefruit. Has an almost smokey, slightly alcoholic bitterness in the finish, but this just adds to the crispiness. It actually feels like a California Common, but with Amarillo rather than the usual Northern Brewer. Very fruity but low on esters and clean. Definitely a spring and/or summer beer, not too different from my own Amarillo Pale Ale recipe which I'm very fond of. This beer makes me dream of green, warm summers...

M/D: As I said, very clean and crisp. Thirst quenching and perfect body for the style. No unpleasant surprises. Very satisfying

Pours a clear golden/copper colour , with a large head that persist well, big bubbles!

Smells heavenly of tropical fruits, passion fruit, pineapple and citrus abundant, a really filling nose, especially considering that this is a single-hop brew. I seem to get some almond icing, and some additional nuts, hazelnuts maybe. Marzipan? If there is such a thing as tropical fruits flavoured marzipan, this is the smell of it.

Tastes weaker than the nose, but that was not unexpected, only amarillo in a brew like this doesnt really do it in the taste for me, it's wonderful in the nose, but it gets a bit one dimensional when it comes down to the composition of flavours. Some light maltiness backing up the amarillo, but make no mistake, this is amarillos stage, with its tropical fruits making a rather brief visit upon the palate and then fading out in a moderate bitterness, that still leaves you thirsting for more. I really think this might work great in the sun a sunny summer- och springday, it never gets heavy, but still feels slightly incomplete.

Mouthfeel is good, could have been a little lighter though I think, for the refreshing feel, but the carbonation is spot on.

A: Light amber. Small bubbles, medium amount of foam, white foam.

S: Hoppy with loads of citric fruits, not that much grape aroma. With citric ther are also a flowery smell.

T: Hoppy citric fruits, but expected more since there was more aroma in the nose. The bitternes is there and works well with the flavours.

O: A really well done beer, though hyped by friends and other reviews so I expected more. (The bottle I tested had passed the best before date, so that may also inflict my negative attitude.

This was part of a beer flight I had last noght and it reminds me of the first time i had DFH 60 minute on tap and how refreshing it was. This is a very well prepared deep amber robusto with deep carmels and sweet malt notes that really give this beer some teeth. The best part is that i had some delicious french freis to counter the floral and earth notes of this top-notch beer. I will look for this at beer shops from now on.

A: Golden orange with medium head that disappears quite quickly. Some lacing.

S: Exotic fruit, Citric notes, Hay, Caramel.

T: Exotic fruit, Citric notes, Hay, Grass, Caramel.

M: Initial taste is very fruity and then it ends with some rather pleasant bitterness. Lots of carbonation with mini-bubbles. Body feels just right. Refreshing!

A very nice APA from Oppigårds. Will definitely get more of this.
