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.

caesar (5120) - 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 (4341) - 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 (3803) - 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 (3205) - 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 (10206) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (3805) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, off-white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of pine, grapefruit and tangerine. Taste is bitter hoppy, cautious hints of grapefruit and pine. Nice one.

Blade86 (577) - Wrocław, POLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Amber, clear, hoppy aroma, no foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, little sour, light body, watery feel, average carbonation, short bitter finish; too light too thin but other than that not bad and drinkable

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, 4.1% abv) Hazy, amber colour with a beige and firm mid-sized foamy head. Flowery, citric and delicately piney hoppy aroma with a mildly cara-malty background. Moderately bitter flavour, fuller body than the abv might suggest, crisp mouthfeel. Dry cara-malty base with present spicy, piney and fruity hops; dry and quite lasting hop bitter finish with a delicate touch of caramel in the aftertaste. Good. 26.II.13

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 22, 2013
0,33 l bottle, Sörmanufaktura, Bp.
Poured clear amber-brown with a small white lacing head. Aroma of some nuts and some cereals, light herbs. Medium bodied one, toasted caramel, light roasted-smokey feeling with a bit of hops in the finish. Easy bittersweet finish. Excepted more.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2013
bouteille 33cl. Cuivrée, col blanc fin. Arôme, bouquet fleuri, fruité léger, malté moyen avec ce côté cône de houblons renfermés, pointe de levure et note de menthe verte, agrumes et léger résineux. Palais est sec et fleuri, note citronnée ponctuée par une sorte de bouton fleuri. Le tout est accompagné par un côté malté agréable, sec et tirant sur un style anglais. Fini herbacé-citronné légèrement huileux-houblonné. Léger et désaltérant.
