Tasting Amarillo Ale (aka Alvin’s Amarillo Ale) and Ho Pale Ale (Fran’s Fruityalvin ale Ale)

Good news! Despite accidentally freezing both kegs of beer in my new keezer (portmanteau of keg and freezer) both beers went down well at Alvin’s and Fran’s wedding.

The corriander seeds in the Ho Pale Ale weren’t really noticable (need to add more than 2 tablespoons next time) but both were tasty and certainly drinkable. The Amarillo Ale was certainly more citrusy and happy – and the Ho Pale Ale quite fruity. I think both were quite fruity due to the high fermentation temperatures.

The accidental freezing didn’t have an impact on the flavour fortunately but sadly did make both beers rather cloudy. The keezer is definitely a work in progress.
