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.

Vielen Dank an Sean! Dieses dunkel-bernsteinfarbene IPA ist mit fünf verschiedenen (und leider nicht benannten) Amerikanischem Hopfen aus dem Yakima-Valley in Washington-State veredelt worden. Sehr schön grasig-malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist hopfenintensiv, toll grasig und harmoniert interessant mit der spannenden Malznote des Körpers. Zum Hauptteil hin baut sich diese Paarung noch weiter aus, es entstehen leichte Kaffee-Gras Aromen, Röstmalz ist vorhanden, wird aber von den Hopfentönen deutlich überlagert. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr angenehm extrem hopfig, aber nicht zu sehr (so dass man noch Aromen schmecken kann), und sehr lang anhaltend. Total trocken. Dafür frisch und süffig. Tolles Bier!

Gehbe (263) - 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.

TrefwoordPunk (983) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear reddish brown with a medium to big off-white head ad an aroma of peach, grassy hops, sweet malts and clotted cream. The taste is medium sweet with a long slightly bitter finish. Very nice!

explosivedog (361) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful copper colour. Aroma is clean and hoppy, taste much less clean, with a murky start leading to a nice bitter finish.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours rich red amber with plenty of bubbles and a fluffy head with slight orange tinge. Aroma complex with American hops - pine, citrus, berries, ash and biscuit. Very watery and thin in the mouth, which lets down a rather promising combination of hops.

Keg, Somewhere. Old phone notes. "Slight caramel and tobacco. 2.4" That’s all I wrote.

LazyPyro (595) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a thin beige head, good retention. Aroma is a well balanced mix of sweet caramel malt, and hops, some citrus. Taste is malty, dry bitter hops, fruit, a bit sour actually.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Tried this alongside its Meantime stablemate [M&S] Greenwich Red (notwithstanding that they are different beers) and M&S Cornish Red (by St Austell brewery).Promising new world nose (mild pine, faint orange juice – or cranberry juice?), combining hops and (caramel) malt, smells slightly thick and boozy despite low ABV. In mouth, it gets a bit thin, but no thinner (and probably less thin) than Greenwich Red –and still a good (red berry - cranberry?) vibe anyway.
