I keep expecting Chorlton to fall down with their only making sour beer and all that, but every time I open a bottle I’m pleasantly surprised at what I find inside.
And this is no different.
Amarillo Sour has a lovely fruit salad aroma and sits a warm amber in my glass.
There’s a shortcake and honey malt and a good hoppy slap from the Amarillo, giving you lots of sharp zingy lemon and lime zest, grapefruit marmalade, satsumas and a metallic herbal tang.
The sourness creeps in right at the end of the beer, it’s rather clever brewing, allowing the sour hit to add a lovely freshness to the finish without turning everything sour and one dimensional.
