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.

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.

Pours a copper colour, with two fingers head that vanishes soon. Aroma of caramel, muscatel, hints of dark fruits, resine and some citrus. Light body, a bit watery, not much carbonation. Taste is sour, sith some toffee, muscatel, resine and citrus. Not really the best of Meantime.

Bottiglia 33cl. Bel colore ambrato, schiuma poco persistente. Il buon profumo di luppolo e malto con note citriche mi faceva sperare in qualcosa di più... in bocca mi ha un pò deluso. Molto "watery", finale asciutto, luppolo.

Butelka 330ml. Piekny ciemny bursztynowy kolor o lekko be?owej pianie. Piwo raczej wodniste o malym wysyceniu. Zapach zdominowany przez amerykanskie chmiele i cytrusy. W smaku jest podobnie - goryczka owoce cytrusowe orzechy i ziemisty posmak. Ciekawe piwo o pieknym wygladzie.
