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.

On tap. Pours a nice clear ruby with a few beige bubbles. Aroma is slightly nutty malts, bread and hops. Wasn’t so keen on the taste as I found this rather stale. I’ll try a bottle and re rate.

Pours red with a tiny head, Found this surprisingly bland, pale malt dominates but little standout flavour or complexity.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - APR 21, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel’s friend! Clear red-amber. Aroma of skunky hops, slightly weedy, and some malt. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit toasty, hops, kinda skunky, a bit citric, and a dry bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Hallstein (260) - Skogn, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
Pours a clear dark red with a small, but nice head. Aroma has a surprising amount of complexity for such a low ABV. Slight roastiness, sweet malty caramel, and some slight floral/herbal hoppiness. Flavor is quite good, with a nice sweet caramely malty backbone. Some slight notes of wort, with the malt at the forefront. Hops are slightly hidden. Carbonation and mouthfeel are well suited to the beer. Not an overly bitter finish. But nicely balanced.

wiedrzensky (270) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Light amber with medium white head. Aroma of rose, red fruit, peach, honey, herbs, light grassy, candy like. Taste is light to medium sweet, followed with medium bitterness, raspberry and briar. Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation. Decent
