Medium brown color with a reddish tinge. Sweet, moderate flavor with a hint of hops & bitterness at the finish. Not a bad session beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl bottle. Bright clear with nice head, quite carbonated for an english ale. Nice smell og fruit and roasted malts. Very thin mouthfeel and a bitternes that is a little bit sour. Pleasant roasted taste, but too onedimensional.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ruby colour under a nice, lasting beige head. Malty fruit aroma. Flavour begins sweet because it is so thin and watery, if that makes any sense. Moderate roasted bitterness at the end. Pretty ordinary, not bad just nothing to really distinguish it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Red/brown colour. Dense beige/white head. Fruity and malty aroma. Actually pretty nice, but with a not-so-nice disturbing element, which I can’t seem to identify. Very (sour) bitter flavour. Dry and slightly metallic. Malty. Not a lot of body.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful burgundy color. Light rusty head that eventually dissipates, leaving powerful lacing that’s fun to swirl around in the glass. Aroma is rather faint but chili and peaty, somewhat reminiscent of an imperial stout. I am rather impressed with Moling’s flavor – extremely pronounced malts and barley as advertised, with a club soda backwash. Has great carbonation and interesting metallic/chowdery aftertaste (in a positive sense). Also provides a high-gravity hops kick going down and in the stomach. At $1.99 for a 500 ml bottle this is one to put on the weekly shopping list!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big, thick, rocky head. Dark red color.
Aroma:coppery, flat, flinty, slightly floral, dry, vegetal.
Medium/light body. Very little going on here, especially where hops are concerned. That’s the Irish style, I know, but definitely not to my taste. There’s malt, and caramely sweetness, but nothing stands out. Bland.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at Mitchell & Sons in Dublin. Neat store. ANyway. Pours a nice looking read with a loose white head. Aroma is pretty fruity, slightly hoppy, with some molasses notes. Flavor is mellow, apple, strawberry, mild citrus, some roasted malt toward the end. Pretty interesting, just a bit bland. Very pleasant mouth feel, it’s a joy to drink, Revolution Red is by far the superior beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a one-finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear red/amber color. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Malty nose. Starts sweet and finishes with a slight bit of hoppiness. It is a different red, seems to be a mix of a red and a pale. $1.85 for a 12 oz bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.
