COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2004
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.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2004
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.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2004
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.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2004
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!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
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.

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - SEP 28, 2004
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.

jimhilt (2397) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2004
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.

badgerben (4392) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Pours a nice, dark, ruby color with a medium brown head. Very malty aroma with a slightly spicy hint. Strong raw barley flavor with more spice rounded out with hops. Much better than I was expecting.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2004
Pours a nice light tan head on a dark amber body. Slightly weak in the aroma, some malt, fruit and spices. Flavor of malt with an ok roasted tone. Little bit of hops and cheesy tones also. Well made but boring is an appropriate description!
