Three Fat Pigs Red Riding Hood I.R.A (500ml Bottle)
Red Riding Hood Indian Red Ale – 5.0 ABV - 42 IBU.
Heavily hopped with a more robust malt backbone than its pale cousin this beer pours a luxuriant red with a fine white head.
For this batch we raised the temperature a little more at the end of fermentation and left it on the yeast for slightly longer.
Giving this beer a drier, crisper finish with a bit more hop bite.
A style without definition, amber ales range from bland, vaguelly caramelly beers to products with a fairly healthy malt and hop balance. Often the differentiation between a quality amber and an American Pale is that the amber might have more dark malt character, or a less assertive hop rate.
