>The Midweek – Dunham’s White Amarillo

>

…This week’s midweek pint is a real thirstquencher; served in Arcadia in Headingley, Leeds.

When you get a beer named after the hop it contains you know what you’re going to get, and Dunham’s White Amarillo is no exception; not a lot of head, pale straw colour and as for flavour – citrus, citrus, citrus. At 4.1abv it mixed the floral, orangey flavours of an IPA without anwhere near the strength. The only downside was…it disappeared in about ten minutes. This is dangerously easy-drinking beer; however, another was soon ordered to restore balance to this idyllic scene. One I’ll be keeping an eye out for in the Summer.

  1. >Are these Amarillo hops still cheap/easy to get ‘cos it seems plenty of micros are producing stuff with them right now. The latest fad at Acorn of Barssley is to showcase American varieties and their Amarillo IPA the other month was delicious. Phoenix did something similar with them recently too I believe and another brewery whose name escapes me. I do like Durham a lot so will definately be on the prowl for this one!
