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.

Holmen1 (2377) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2012
Fra fat på Cardinaltreff okt-12: 5 ulike humlesorter fra Yakima Valley, her var det lite særpreg. Syrligheten er ikke balansert med maltsødme. 4,3%. Tar neppe et gjensyn med denne.

On tap at Cardinal. Misty deep golden wit a fingerthick creamy light brown head. Nice fresh hoppy nose. Apricots. Medium body. Fruity acidic, hoppy bitter. Lovely aftertaste. Smooth and delicious.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2012
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with orange peel, rye bread, apricots and fresh floral, citric hops. Malty, slightly spicy taste with notes of crisp-bread, apricots, orange peel, a touch of honey and a gentle, citric bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Less hops coming through in the taste than in the nose, but still fresh, tasty and highly drinkable. Nice one.

Tap@DelftBierfestival. Faint hoppy aroma. Reddish colour, beige head, fair lace. Dry, light bitter, light nutty, toffee?, light herbal. Medium body. Flavour seemed OK but became annoying towards the end of the glass.

sic1314 (3217) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2012
On tap at Delft beer festival. Poured a cloudy amber. Aroma of hops and citrus/pine. Flavour similar with more malt and quite a bitter finish. OK but not great.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 26, 2012
Red cloudy amber ale. Nice pine hoppy aroma, yeasty but with a drinkable feel. Medium carbonation. Enough flavour from the low alcohol beer. Nice work not legendary. (At Delft Beer Festival)

Theydon_Bois (8294) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Tap at the Old Brewery Greenwich - 02/4/12. Amber red colour with a decent slightly off-white head. Piney hop aroma, background citrus and some sweetish malt. Tastes as nose with a little grassiness and can denote grapefruit. Lightish bodied, medium carbonation and a little lingering bitterness on the finish.

flip_soeperman (586) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2012
bread, hay, floral, red, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation. Too subtle for me. Ok on a very hot day, but not very impressive
