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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2003
12 oz bottle, mug. Creamy, off-white head slowly diminishes to a crown on a deep red-garnet body. Cookie, caramel malt (M); flowery hops (L); peat aroma. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Nice peat flavor in the finish, but the flavor seems a bit watered down. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: a little fuller and richer and this would be a rockin beer.

Nice reddish appearance but a very mundane taste.Nothing really going for it -pleasant to drink but boring.

Really liked this one. It has brownish-red dark color, a creamy head. A little bitter in the end, not the it matters.

Pours a good dark red to light burgundy. Small white head that is rapidly disappearing. Smells of soft ripe red fruits, some caramel. Opens up with a nice strong hops presence and a drier caramel malt and some darker candied red fruits. Ends very dry, maybe almost too dry. Light coffee maybe, more of a toffee. Moderate bitterness. Quite flavorful and good medium body, no thining at all. Carbonation leaves quickly with no problems.

Deep ruby red color, off white head. Relatively sweet all around. Slight hop bitterness at the end. Pretty nice.

Labeled as Moling's Traditional Celtic Beer. Nothing much to it, really. Leinie's Red is a better drinking beer.

Rubt red in color with a clear appearance,aroma was moderately sweet and malty.Caramel malts lend a sweet flavor from start to finish.
