3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

Cask Conditioned at The White Lion, Fewcott, Oxon. A red beer with a dry caramel tone, almost powdery on the palate. There is a sign of hops through a boiled vegetable flavour though bitterness does come through in the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Glorious ruby amber brown clear with medium size very pale beige orange head. Aroma is caramel honeycomb malt when cool and even more honeycomb when warmed. Medium woody cask bitter, grain and lighter metallic sweet malt start. Chewy medium strength roasted bitter finish and aftertaste. Didn't get much coffee. Very pleasant drinking

This beer looked good but, had no taste. I don't have anything more to say but, you have to have 75 characters so you just looked at this for nothing.
