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.

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.

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2003
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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2003
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

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
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.
