BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Radiant Pig Craft Beers
New York, United States
radiantpigbeer.us

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An American Red Ale influenced by multiple beer styles. Intense citrus and stone fruits dominate the nose (or beak if we're staying with the duck theme), yet the bitterness from the hops is balanced by Belgian and American crystal malts. It smells like an IPA exploding with fancy American hops but has a smooth, malty-but-not-too-malty finish.

Don't know if it was my pour but seems over carbonated, had to pause 60 seconds to finish the pour.
Thick, thick head, darkish foam. Dark amber color. Aroma is orange peel, ash, hint of hops to come.
Taste is good balance of malt and hops, but very strong rye presence (whether it's in there or not I don't know), but in a good way.
Mouthfeel is just right. Nice beer, but you have to be in the mood for the style.
Tall boy can is impressive also. Matt finish is a nice stand out from a sea of gloss can printing. Can't say I like the product duck mascot, but the brewery logo and the info on the back are both pretty cool.

Pour - growler from Ronkonkoma Beverage.

Look - traditional amber to red color with an inch or more of tan head with thin lacing

Nose - malty hops. orange, toasty malt.

Taste - toasty malt, late hops, citrus, doughy,

Body - light carbonation, smooth silky mouthfeel

Overall - Nice red with the traditional taste and feel of an Irish red /amber ale. not too malty not too hoppy and not too high in alcohol to spoil the aftertaste. I could pour this confidently for my Irish family and friends without fear of reprisal. Good Ale, I will certainly buy another growler.

Malted up nose

Malted up on the palate, with just perhaps a fruity back note

Malty....not overly impressed wid this offering...better then usual Red ale is about the best I can say..

On tap at the Lark in East Northport. Pours very cloudy copper amber color with a foamy off white head that faded slowly and left OK spotty lace. Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel, orange peel, toasted grains, herbs and a malty sweetness. Hops jump at you first, then the malt settles in and adds nice balance for a very nice aroma. Tastes very similar, with citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon, sweet malt, caramel, light toffee, orange peel, toasted grains, tea leaf, flowers or floral hops, mild yeast and a malty sweetness that is bready and similar to a toasted cracker. Mouthfeel is medium with a feel on the slick side, carbonation on the light side and a sweet bready aftertaste that's got doughy notes which are almost buttery. Overall a nice amber with just enough hops in the flavor to give it complexity and balance.

A: The beer is relatively clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense off white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit and spicy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has strong undertones of the underlying malts, the latter of which stand out in the finish and lend some flavors of caramel to go along with the spicy hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer has a very good balance between the malts and hops.

Serving type: can
