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.

Bottle pour head died quite quickly. Flavors more closely to a porter than a traditional Irish red. Reddish-brown in color, with pale yellow head. Sweet malty flavor, very little hops on the palate. This beer is better once it nears a room temperature, as it is cold, it comes across a lot more bitter. Slight light lacing on the glass. Generally okay session beer, but not spectacular.

Clear dark reddish brown color with a medium creamy off-white head that lasts a while. Aroma caramel, some grain and light fruit. Flavor of sweet fruit and caramel followed by grain.

Pours a dark red color with thick tan head. Fruit aroma along with caramel. Doesn’t really apeal to me at all. Flavor is the same but reminds me of Killians only slight better. Slightly being the keyword. Not good at all.

A little too sweet for an irish red I think. Red in color so that lives up to all expectations. A bit dry in the finish, and a little bit of a moldy grass flavor. Not the best thing I’ve ever tasted but not the worst. Its been a while since I’ve had any other reds so I really cant compare but I vaguely remember Murphys Red being a bit better.

Pretty reddish brown color. Fairly malty sweet aroma. Some nice malts, hops were a little lacking. Beer was pretty overwhelmingly sweet. Decent palate. Average beer.

Nice color, had a bit of a berry taste to it. It had a beautiful red color. Tried it as a "St. Patty’s day special."

On tap at Mahar’s on St. Patty’s Day 06. Very good session beer. Flavor was malty, a little too sweet, but good starter for sure.

50 cl bottle. Molings Celitic beer. Dark brown with tanned foamy head. Sweet with aromas of meduim-dark malts. Hints of alcohol and residual sugars. Short, light dry finish. Rather one-dimensional beer.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Good mahogony body with a medium volume white head. Very thin aroma, sweet malts are evident. Watery body, hops do balence the caramel malts, but the overall taste is thin. Cool ending with caramel aftertones.
