BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

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.

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

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.
