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.

Tap. Nice peachy hop nose. Hazy amber, lacing offwhite head. Aromatic hops underlaid by a toasty earthy note, needs a tad more oomph in the middle . Somewhat light body, mellow mouthfeel. Apricot retronasal pleasant.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2013
Medium, rather dense cream-coloured head over rather still metallic amber-copper beer. Superbly fruity USA-hops. Citrus, resin, exotic fruit. Bitter, but fast gone impression, only to return, much diminished and more metallic in the aftertaste. Meanwhilie, try to imagine utterly dry, totally non-sweet caramel. Finish shows some of the USA hops from the nose. Very empty MF. Even keeping in mind it only features 4%, compared to some other, recent low alcohols, this is watery. Nose is great. If only the rest followed in the same vein.

Benzai (8111) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2013
Bottle shared by Joes. Clear light amber red color, small white to off - white head. Smell malts, lightly hops, a bit flowery. Taste malts, blossom, grassy, a bit hoppy, decently bitter. Very nice beer.

DutchDrebus (3956) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2013
Bottle @ joes. Orange to copper colou with a lacing white head. Smells hops, pine, fresh. Tastes hoppy, bitter, fresh, fruity, pine - but too thin. Watery, soft carbo.

pivnizub (8770) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, smaller stable off-white foam, hazy, fruity-hoppy nose with a skunky touch; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively dry and light bodied; lingering bitter-hoppy finish with that barnyardy touch again. Really not my personal favourite…

caesar (5046) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2013
Bottle @ de Molen. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of american hop, grapefruit, some pine, slight malty as well. Taste is a bit bitter and dry, quite thin and watery though. For 4% it’s ok and its very easy to drink, but it’s just a bit thin.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2013
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting, April 2013. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin glass hugging head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of American hops. It’s a little metallic too , but the hops make up for that slightly negative qualities!

dEnk (3775) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2013
Bottle @ De Molen. Aroma is big and hoppy, fruity mostly citric notes. Flavour is thin, crisp, hoppy and very refreshing, again mostly citric fruity hop notes. Long lingering. Awesome session ale.

Grzesiek79 (3177) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Dobre, choć nie rewelacyjne jak dla mnie i dla tego gatunku. Trochę mdławe i wyrznie chmielne, za malo slodowosci. Kolor takze jakby nie czerwony jak w nazwie, ale są to tylko odcienie w bursztybie. Piana za to fajna, ladna i trwala.

bierkoning (10138) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle, 4.1% on the label. Pale amber color. Grapefruit and floral hops in the slightly yeasty aroma and flavor. Thinnish. Fairly refreshing. Enough hops. Pleasant ale.
