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.

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.

joergen (21730) - 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.

Bottled, had it as Carlow Molings Traditional Red Ale. Reddish brown colour. Hoppy aroma, with hints of fruits. Very fruity and fresh taste. Smells more than it tastes though. Pretty much carbonation.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Clear deep copper red body, big puffy light cream head. Metallic, earthy, hoppy nose with rough grain notes hiding in the background. Very dry body, mostly earthy hops, toasty and without much caramel or fruit development that I expect from the style. A couple more sips and it’s apparent that there really isn’t much flavor at all. Ugh. A waste of money.

From what I hear, a new beer, and one that’s going to take over the market from Killian’s Irish Red... well go ahead, I don’t know many people drinkin’ Killians. Anyway, could this take over? Sure... it’s virtually the same. Same plain, malty taste, with a hint of metal. I was not overly impressed here.
