2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This ale poured a dark red colour with a tan rocky head. To the nose you could smell scents of sugary malts, beef gravy and caramel. First taste was thin and watery with flavours of very light malt and mineralized water. Slight metallic flavour, not bad but there. The finish is thin and malty but thats about it. Not bad but lacking in flavour depth. Ther palate is malt and thats it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some smokiness in the aroma. Red with a small fluffy head. Taste has an unfortunate metallic tang that diminishes the impression of the hops.
A tad thin as well.
Still, not too bad, just not worth the premium cost.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought as Moling’s Traditional Celtic Beer at the LCBO in Windsor Ontario.
A nice deep brown pour with a light tan head. Head linger fluffy like for a long time. Scent of caramel and fruit with more then a hint of nuts. Very full bodied taste with a watery aftertaste. Quite the oposite of way too many beers. I expect more in the finish then the flavour, and this is the oposite. Rather nice actually. Caramel, malts with a bitter hop end. A lingering smokey aftertaste that doesn’t kick in until a few seconds after putting your pint down. A rather nice, smokey dark ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/2 liter bottle
Decants a deep chestnut red...2 finger rich sticky cap lasts and laces well.
Aroma subtle earthy-nutty-malty..great nose to this one.
Good malt spine, slick mouth feel, mellow character.
Malty nutty flavor up front...no cloying, earthy hops and yeast tastes in the middle, finishes lightly drying with a smoky-nutty after taste.
Nice...not too many Irish red ales I take to but this one is sessionable and very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a dark brown body with average carbonation and a fair off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with some grassy and biscuity/grainy hints. Its taste is dominated by hoppiness and ends with a sharp bitter finish. This is a decent "everyday" Irish Ale.

Labelled Traditional Celtic. A very nice balanced ale with sweet meduim balance and nicely grainy finish. Hops in the supporting role. Good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle at the lcbo, not alot on the nose malts and some sweetness, amber color decent head but not long lasting, not a fan really didn’t really find any hops in this one, usually with beers from the british isles there is that nice even balance but this all i got was Malt and some medicinal flavor as well as slightly odd mouthfeel, happy to try it but not likely going to again

Bouteille de 500 ml, acheté au LCBO d’Ottawa (Rideau et King Edward), sous le nom de Molings Traditional Celtic Beer. Ambrée un peu foncée, petit collet. Légé arome de noix malté, avec un légé parfum floral. Goût de malte aqueux, un peu de soupson de caramel. plutôt ennuyant!
