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.

50 cL bottle. Pours golden deep hazzlenutbrown with a creamy light tan head. Spiced and caramel malty aroma. Flavour is medium dry caramel malty with a tobacco spiced hops flavour following. Goes reasonably bitter after this and into the finish. Light fruity note appearing from the hops too.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2003
A dark amber beer with a small fast disappearing head. The aroma is weak but slightly sweet. The flavor is wheaty (?) - too sweet and boring. All in all an average beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Called "Molings Traditional Celtic Beer" in my version. Mahogany in colour with a reddish tint and a rather stable, light brown head. Sweetish and malty with notes of caramel and smoke. Very pleasant Irish ale. 200304

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.

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
14th July 2010. Bottle at Brew Wharf. Clear dark brown beer. Good white head. Fresh palate - a little dry and quite crisp. Even minerally malt. Would be a boring beer but the crisp palate which has a real carbonated sting in the finish keeps some interest.

Beautiful red-amber color. Malt nose, with a strange light herbs hint. Dry taste, some malt and very light roasted malt. Sufficient.
