BEER INFO

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

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.

Could be a faulty line or batch but tastes metallic and has a rough aftertaste.

From 07/30/14 notes. On tap at Stags Head in NYC. 16 oz. pour into a pint glass.

a - Pours a deep burnt amber color with two inches of off white/light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of toasted malts, dark fruity malts, burnt malts, earthy notes, floral hops, and some spices. More fruit than the taste had.

t - Tastes of burnt malts, toasted malts, fruity malts, bread, grains, dough, earthy notes, and light spice.

m - Medium body and moderate to low carbonation. Smooth, little less carbonation and it would be amazing.

o - Overall not a big fan of this beer or the two beers I've had from them so far in general. This one just had too much burnt and toasted malt to it for me. Wouldn't seek it out again.

A: crystal clear; deep bronze in color; 1+ finger off white head that receded to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: balanced - earthy caramel with a bit of floral;

T: balanced up front; predominantly caramel from the middle through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: didn't have the hop character I hoped for - certainly not like an IPA as the label promises; no date on the can, so maybe it was old;
