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.

djoeye (896) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
Nice cone 33cl brown bottle pours; off white head - almost tan, red amber body, several small curtains inside glassware. Fresh fruity scents of pine, grapefruit peel, amber malts. Distinct taste; pine, hops, citric peels, grainy malts, slightly roasted, nice taste. Ok on palate, fresh bitter and alright body. Finishes with hops, pine, grapefruity dusts, smoked malts, average lingering. Overall good. B@EideHandel T@home.

ERB92 (171) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Malts, fruits, citrus and grass in the aroma. Amber with off white. Light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Dry in the finish. Overall a really nice fruity ale.

Simonsen (541) - NORWAY - MAR 22, 2014
Flaske fra roma sofiemyr. Klar mørk kobberfarget, medium karbonert. Fyldig, litt kremete skumtopp. Smaker malt, brød, blomster, frukt, blader.lett humlet ettersmak. Føles litt parfymert, men har maltsmak og masse frukt. Ganske god til å være butikkøl

Beertobealive (136) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2014
pours a thick cloudy jammy red. lots of fruits aromas but not only. Very nice length also and a nice bitterness compared to other fruity ales.

Pyrmir (2761) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2014
On tap at Brew Wharf. Amber color with off white head. Aroma perfumy, aromatic malt notes, fruit and wood. Taste is woody, toast, fruit with a balancing bitterness. Nice!

hens (486) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2014
0.33L bottle. Brown color, medium top, stays. Full hop aroma with nice orange seed. Good and simple amber. Ginger, citrus inside peel, enjoyable bitterness. Maybe raw malt and grassy. I like this one.

Hopsinjoor (6) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014 does not count
Bubbly froth quickly fades and gives a malty aroma. Initial taste is ok with some nice fruity hops but then comes the steel. There one hell of an industrial rusted iron offnote in this one. Just drinkable...

mmahut (627) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2014
Beer pours in dark bronze body with medium head. Aroma is fruity, floral, little bit grassy hop notes, dark fruits. Taste is fruity sweetness upfront with earthy bitterness notes, short lasting, goes away after few seconds. After few sips the fruity sweetness is gone replaced with more malty, almost little bit syrupy character. Body is medium with high, almost harsh, carbonation.

mgajdaczewa (301) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Amerykańskie chmiele w aromacie, słodkie, białe owoce, spora ziemistość, a także iglaki charakterystyczne dla Cascade. W smaku za to goryczka wyskoka, przyjemnie zalegająca, przyprawowa z lekkim leśnym akcentem, całość wytrawna, słodowość lekko zaznaczona. W aromacie amber ale, w smaku premium bitter, bardzo smaczny zresztą. Nietypowe i bardzo pijalne.
