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.

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.

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.

Tap at Old Brewery. Gorgeous, fruity, Hop aroma. Red, dark amber. Lacking in flavour,

Bottle. Red clear. Good hoppy nose, lots of citrus, piny caramel. Body lightish, somewhat thin. Good flavours though.

Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, 4.1% ABV
Bright copper-amber color with medium head. Very nice fruity aroma, and toffee-caramel. The flavor is more disappointing, the body being weak, the caramel tired, with a touch of cabbage, chicory bitterness without much hop quality, apart from some resins.
Mediocre.

(Bottle). Nice aroma of floral hops and tropical fruits. The taste is aromatic hops with hints of flowers, citrus and pine. In the aftertaste is a nice dry bitterness. A tasty beer!

Keg 3rd August at Bold Tendencies- Peckham Car Park. Dark amber (at least I think it is. I'm at a gig in a multistorey car park at the sun is going down) with a think retaining head. Medium carbonation.Nose is berries with some resin. Flavour is more orangey than I expected. Overall one of my preferred efforts from Meantime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask down the Vice. Most pleasant, wasn’t expecting much in truth but Meantime delivered. Love Yakima, a good hoppy kick, amber to look at. Check out Shige. Gypsy Gentleman 7. If I’m going I’m going to get some PR in for stuff that you you need to see first.
