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.

(bottle) reddish amber to copper colour, pale beige head, slightly hazy. Nutty and toasted malty aroma, herbal hops, fruity. Medium bitterness. Medium body. Less good than the draught version I had at the brewery, but still quite nice. Tastes more like an English bitter to me, though.

Kaballo (3) - SPAIN - JUL 27, 2013 does not count
27.07.2013. Red Amber Ale con un intenso aroma y sabor a lúpulo pero sin pasarse. De cabeza cremosa y rápida disipación. Entra muy bien e invita a repetir. Su baja graduación, 4,2° la hace idónea para cualquier momento.
