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.

Sigmund (5557) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2005
500 ml bottle, as "Molings Traditional Red Ale / Traditional Celtic Beer", bought in Denmark. Chestnut colour, large cream-coloured head. Very moderate aroma of malts and caramel. Malty flavour with some toffee and a noticeable bitterness, but not very complex or remarkable. Drinkable of course, but this is a beer that probably would be a lot better if cask or bottle conditioned. It’s not, which makes it not that much better than "average".

I don’t understand why this is rated so low. I thought the flavor was indescribably smooth and delicious.

Bright dark amber hue, with reddish highlights, a tan-colored foamy head, caramelized malt, roasted grains, bready, malty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palater with grainy, nutty, malty character, sweet roasted grains, toasty malt, caramel malt, in a low hopping finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
pours a dark brown with a reddish hue with a decent foamy off-white head, the smell is mostly of malts and spices but very light almost not present. flavor is mostly fruity with some bitterness at the finish, its a good beer, just not brag worthy

UnsofistaCat (239) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Nose was practically absent. Amber red, with small lace. Pretty boring, I was expecting more. Grassy taste offset by some bitterness. I detected no sweet malt finish as promised.

RichardGretton (4374) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2005
Bottled. Darkish beer with a red tinge and a foam head. The aroma is very light, malty and slightly stale, and the flavour is quite dry with a hint of malt. Overall a reasonable dry beer.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Pours a deep dark brown red color with a nice amount of foam slightly offwhite head. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly caramely and a tad bit of almost belgian spices. Flavor is very watery with a slight fruit flavor that quickly dissapears and replaced by a mostly dry finish. Overall, a decent watery brew.

Pailhead (5395) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very light but seems a little sweet or fruity. Pours a transparent amber with an insignificant white head. Flavor is lightly fruity with a touch of caramel and light roastiness. Very little hops at all. Rather plain and boring.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle from Peace St. Market, Raleigh. This one is very good. Deep ruby/dark brown with tan head. Aromas of caramel malt, cabernet, some almonds and cognac. Caramel malt in the flavor, with some toffee, cabernet, cognac, and some nutty and rauchy notes. Complex and fairly well balanced, and at the top of my list when I go back to Peace St.
