Weeping Radish "Ruddy Radish"
Weeping Radish Farm Brewery - Grandy, North Carolina USA
American Red Ale (ABV 6.4%) (IBU 24)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy medium copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) light tan sudsy head that receded steadily until fully diminished and had poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, light citrus hops and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester.

Taste was malty sweet with a touch of toffee at first, progressing with a mild fruitiness, a slight tartness and a citrus peel bite at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, with the light bitterness giving way to a mild sweetness that lingered on the taste buds for a short time longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a mildly dry texture and a fizzy carbonation.

Overall this was a very unique tasting Red Ale. Fruity yet bitter, sour yet sweet, most definitely an enjoyable brew...
