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.

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.
