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.

330ml bottle from Utobeer, London:
Biscuit malts and citrus notes make up the smell initially, along with a slightly astringent aroma and some fruits around the middle that consist mainly of orange and citrus ones. There is some caramel towards the end.
Light copper with a thumb sized head that is a foamy white before roughly halving in size.
Caramel malts and a slightly sweet taste kick things off along with some biscuit malts from the nose and a light, earthy taste that is coupled with hints of fruit as well.
Light medium with a bittersweet mouthfeel and a slight citrus tang. The beer is smooth for the most part and leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Not a bad amber ale and one that had a nice balance to it between the biscuit malts and the bittersweet flavours than became more pronounced as the beer had time to settle.

ads135 (2921) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Milder than I was expecting having had other more assertive meantime beers. Should’ve looked at the alcohol. Very nice, though, with a subtle orange and citrus flavor.

Silvan7 (674) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle @home. Buonissimi profumi freschi ed intensi di luppolo aromatico (amarillo?) e di erba appena tagliata. Il fruttato è flebile, tendenzialmente lamponi. Ha anche note speziate, forse zenzero. Colore rosso rubino, appena opalescente. Schiuma biancastra non molto sviluppata ma decisamente persistente. Gusto pungente, tipo APA, ma meno deciso, vira presto sul maltato. Asciutta e bilanciata.

Light haze on this amber beer, little white head. Palate is light and semi dry with a decent amount of minerally carbonation. Light dry malt, a little cream. It’s also slightly lager like. Mild orange hops, fresh tasting but somewhat repressed. Touch of peel. Dry finish with a mild bitter linger. A touch insipid this beer but ultimately fine.
