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.

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.

500 ml bottle, at Olympen, Oslo. Beautiful reddish colour, large to moderate off-white head. Lovely complex aroma of American hops, notes of various fruits, hints of spices. Delightful hoppy flavour, well balanced with the malts, notes of red fruits / berries, blackcurrants and blackcurrant leaves, extremely drinkable. Great with a mutton dinner, or alone. A "school example" of English subtlety paired with American quality hops in a moderate ABV "session" ale.

A clear amber coloured liquid with a small off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Smells like a picnic with biscuits and butterscotch in the middle of a citrus orchard. But once you drink it, it’s obvious the caramel and biscuit are really only there to balance the lovely flowery citrus bitterness that dominates the flavour. Goes great with Thai food. With only 4% ABV I guess this time less truly is more.

On tap, poured a beautiful dark mahogany. Surprised its just an amber, especially for the ABV, had a great red, hoppy flavor. Excellent.

JohnRMurdoch (4407) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2011
Tap @ The Euston Tap. Amber brown colour, not much head. Mild hoppy aroma. Strong dry hoppy flavour with lingering hoppy aftertaste. Served a bit cold but still not bad.

Vignale (3366) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2011
Bärnstensfärgad med väldigt lågt skum. Stor fruktig och bärig doft. Passionsfrukt, söta röda vinbär och björnbär. Smaken är också fruktig, främst tropisk frukt med en lite grässträv lätt efterbeska, lätt kropp som inte känns tunn, liten sötma. Ett riktigt bra öl på 4%. Kan på rak arm inte komma på många som är bättre. Riktigt god och extra trevligt med en lite lättare öl nu när all annan säsongsöl tävlar om att vara starkast, mörkast eller beskast. Ett fantastiskt gott öl.

Gehbe (259) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 11, 2016
Clear deep amber with a lasting creamy light tan head. Mellow aroma of caramel, baguette, pine, fresh forest boletus, dried fruit, herbs. Taste is light bitter with lighter sweet/sour notes in the background. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, some stickiness on finish. Nice, smooth, very drinkable.

Tutti frutti, jäst och ugli i doften. Ölen är välbalanserad med fin maltighet och humle arom och jag anar en ton av koriander. Kunde kanske varit snäppet krämigare, menmen. Behaglig beska och lång eftersmak. Lättdrucken...tänker på en varm sommardag.
