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.

Bottle. A tan brown colour with a small head. Aroma of citrus and yeasty malt, bitterness evident even on the nose. Flavour fairly acidic with citrus and coriander, some hoppy notes. Aggressive carbonation giving way to a watery finish. Poor and not at all enjoyable.

Bottle; pours clear copper with a khaki head; aroma is grapefruit with some caramel; taste starts sweet with caramel and then becomes bitter with grapefruit and orange; finish is bitter with more citrus; pretty good ale

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
5th May 2015: keg half-pint in Royal Oak somewhere in London. Red hue to the amber body, on top an off-white crown of foam. The nose had a mild malty aroma with some background earthiness. Taste, a blend of pale malts and slightly bittering hops: not as much going on as I hoped for. Not bland, but not flavoursome either.

33cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small slightly off-white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, malts, herbs and spices. A decent amber ale.

On tap. Pours a nice clear ruby with a few beige bubbles. Aroma is slightly nutty malts, bread and hops. Wasnít so keen on the taste as I found this rather stale. Iíll try a bottle and re rate.

Clear deep amber reddish color, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dried fruits, honey, spicy hops. Dry sweet taste with subtle bitterness in finish and dry hoppy aftertaste. Thin body and average carbonation. Nice beer, very drinkable.

Keg at the White Horse. Dark red, hazy, still, very big dense foamy tan head, full lacing. Aroma is fruit pastilles, perfume, turkish delight, rose garden. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is earthy soda water, rose, more fruit pastille, lemon. Dry with a soft bitterness. Good.

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

DSG (12153) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 21, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Arielís 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.
