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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
