COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First appeared as a draught special in March/April 2011.
This is not the same beer as the Marks & Spencer Greenwich Red Ale. They are similar recipes, but are not the same. They use completely different hops and malts.
Brewed with 5 hop varieties from the Yakima Valley, Washington State.

TrefwoordPunk (943) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear reddish brown with a medium to big off-white head ad an aroma of peach, grassy hops, sweet malts and clotted cream. The taste is medium sweet with a long slightly bitter finish. Very nice!

explosivedog (183) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful copper colour. Aroma is clean and hoppy, taste much less clean, with a murky start leading to a nice bitter finish.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours rich red amber with plenty of bubbles and a fluffy head with slight orange tinge. Aroma complex with American hops - pine, citrus, berries, ash and biscuit. Very watery and thin in the mouth, which lets down a rather promising combination of hops.

Keg, Somewhere. Old phone notes. "Slight caramel and tobacco. 2.4" That’s all I wrote.

LazyPyro (524) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a thin beige head, good retention. Aroma is a well balanced mix of sweet caramel malt, and hops, some citrus. Taste is malty, dry bitter hops, fruit, a bit sour actually.

BeerViking (4104) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2016
Keg, red-brown with a fine beige head, toasted toffee and a hint of leafy hop nose, dry-sweet with toast and but notes and a hint of tartness.

TheKernOwl (174) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Tried this alongside its Meantime stablemate [M&S] Greenwich Red (notwithstanding that they are different beers) and M&S Cornish Red (by St Austell brewery).Promising new world nose (mild pine, faint orange juice – or cranberry juice?), combining hops and (caramel) malt, smells slightly thick and boozy despite low ABV. In mouth, it gets a bit thin, but no thinner (and probably less thin) than Greenwich Red –and still a good (red berry - cranberry?) vibe anyway.

I_LUV_BEER (172) - - MAY 9, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours clear dark amber colour with a stable beige head which slowly diminishes. Aroma is a pleasant combination of hops, berries and bread. Taste is a smooth combination of malt and red grapes with slight nuttiness, finishing off with a soft hoppy bite. Thin body with soft carbonation. Very easy to drink and enjoyable, very nice as a session ale.

ManVsBeer (8492) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Copper-red with next to no head. Has a light but steady malty-sweetness and some caramel notes..
