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.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a ruby red with a soapy off-white head. A sour-sweet aroma with notes of pineapple, apple and caramel. Taste is watery and dry, with a higher alcohol percentage the taste would’ve been better. Has a nice bitter taste, a bit hoppy but could be nicer. Not a very noticeable finish. Average carbonation.

A ruby-red, clear beer with a firm layer of foam. It has a sour aroma, that comes along with the scents of apple, pineapple, mango and other sweet fruits. The sour bit comes along in the taste, but is also accompanied by some bitterness. Unfortunately, almost no aftertaste. Een robijnrood, helder bier met een stevige kraag. Een zuur aroma, maar wel met de hint van appel, ananas, mango en andere zoete vruchten. Het zurige gaat mee in de smaak, maar dit is vergezelt met een bitterheid. Helaas weinig tot geen nasmaak.

Pours clear amber. Aroma is on the malty side. Taste is clean, malty with bread. Nice but not special.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. No special aroma, some alcohol and hop. The clear orange red beer has a small brown head. The taste is watery, lack of alcohol to give the taste a boost, the five hops are not really noticeable. Low carbonated.

Beperkte kraag, Koper/amber....hoezo rood? .... Aroma van caramel en lichte hop. Smaken zijn vlak/flets/dun. Nee ik ben er nu al uit .... Dit is niks.... Licht hoppig maar de waterige tonen zijn te nadrukkelijk aanwezig. Ben er wel klaar mee....

A slightly frothy ale, which is brewed on the American model. Limited hoppy aroma, but a nice full-bodied ale where especially Amarillo hops typical floral and citrus aroma can be recognized. It is not provoking or remarkable, but simply and good.

Alengrin (4254) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015
Draught in a pub in London opposite to the Olympia. Thin but stable, off-white head, hazy reddish amber colour. Pleasant aroma of dried berries, toasted bread, hazelnuts, caramel, leather and white pepper. Subdued fruity taste, smooth and lean mouthfeel, soft carbo, malty main character, toasted and nutty, with an aromatic and lightly spicy ’hop bite’ in the end. Quaffable enough.
