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.

Beer pours in dark bronze body with medium head. Aroma is fruity, floral, little bit grassy hop notes, dark fruits. Taste is fruity sweetness upfront with earthy bitterness notes, short lasting, goes away after few seconds. After few sips the fruity sweetness is gone replaced with more malty, almost little bit syrupy character. Body is medium with high, almost harsh, carbonation.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Amerykańskie chmiele w aromacie, słodkie, białe owoce, spora ziemistość, a także iglaki charakterystyczne dla Cascade. W smaku za to goryczka wyskoka, przyjemnie zalegająca, przyprawowa z lekkim leśnym akcentem, całość wytrawna, słodowość lekko zaznaczona. W aromacie amber ale, w smaku premium bitter, bardzo smaczny zresztą. Nietypowe i bardzo pijalne.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 LIght body and watery on the palate. Bubbly head which disappears quickly (sounds like a lager head..). quite bland aroma but more interesting in flavours. nice smooth maltyness with a dry finish, but it’s a bit underflavoured for a red beer. It’s a little overcarbonated as well. In general is a great beer but I would expect more from the Meantime..

Smakte litt for bittert for min smak. Var frisk og lettdrikkelig. Rød øl. Lys men litt mye smak

On draft. Red amber hue. Solid head that stays with, lacing. Smooth. Clean pilsner type taste, overriding focus on the bitterness. Pleasant bitterness, lingers.

Koskela (275) - Marysville, California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Very syrupy smell and a vit of tartness in this mostly clear deep red beer With a small offwhite head. A sweet bitterish taste come with thie beer and also a bit almost tart bitterness throughout. Its a medium body and good carb. Not horrible but not wotyh another buy. The tartness really throws me off
