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.

Pours mahogony with a fluffy offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of citrus fruits. Flavor is malty with notes of fruits as well. Drinkable but nothing special I didn’t think. Import price will likely keep me from drinking this again.

One of the best Irish Ales out there. From Ireland. Delicious beer. Nice amount of malt with some hoppiness.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Called "Molings Traditional Celtic Beer" in my version. Mahogany in colour with a reddish tint and a rather stable, light brown head. Sweetish and malty with notes of caramel and smoke. Very pleasant Irish ale. 200304

A just OK irish red. Color more copper than red. Some hops to the flavor, but a little bland for an irish red.

red, obviously, carbonated throughout, a coffee-like after-taste, not bad, not worth the price.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2005
Bottle. Mild slightly roasted malty aroma. A few grassy notes. Garnet amber color with a frothy off-white head and nice lacing. Thin, somewhat bland to start, turning quite roasty and a tad bitter to finish. There are some fruity notes in there as well. Slight metallic notes. Thin. A little better than the Murphy’s I just had.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Dark brown with a fleeting tan head. Aroma of peat, earthy malt, caramel sweetness. Lively carbonation and watery texture. Flavor was watered down brown ale. Nothing commendable.

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
Red colour with a small beige head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of grain. Malty flavour with notes of grain and caramel, with a hoppy finish. Very drinkable, but an average beer.

Nothing special in the nose. Maybe some hints of skunk. Pours a rather attractive deep red color. Taste is slightly bitter. There’s just nothing special about this beer. It’s not bad but at $9.99 a six pack I could get something just as good from a local brewer for a few bucks cheaper.

Fairly typical Irish ale, with a nice berry note in the otherwise dry flavor. Unfortunately it’s overcarbonated; too bad because it was on its way to being a nice brew.
