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.

botella de 33 cl. Magnífico ejemplo de red ale. Corona de espuma beige, duradera..."manchando" el vaso como debe ser. Lo primero que salta a la vista es su aroma, delicioso aroma a malta y lúpulos (fruta madura???, madera??). Luego su color...ambar oscuro, precioso y por fin en boca, no defrauda, excelente para repetir...solo o en compañía.

Dark chestnut colour; nutty flavours, and earthy malt, drying out to a smoky finish.

Nice malty aroma. Body has hints of malt, caramel, and hops balanced quite nicely. An enjoyable red.

Nice dark ruby color and a very malty aroma. semmed a little ightly hopped for my tastes, but a very smooth balance of caramel and malt flavors made up for it nicely. A very good red ale.

nice,balanced with a good flavor very little after taste well worth getting more but the price i felt is a little high at $11/6-pack not priced in the heavy drinking range but well worth it if you wanna treat yourself once in a while

Monster nose -- ale, tobacco, dust, a little fruit -- reminds me of alt. Palate is decent for a session, a bit thin with a quick roast finish. Peaty, dried fruit and slightly smoked ale flavor. Very good. Good homebrew bottle. Dark red-brown, with a thin tannish head.

Really liked this one. It has brownish-red dark color, a creamy head. A little bitter in the end, not the it matters.

Pours a beautiful burgundy color. Light rusty head that eventually dissipates, leaving powerful lacing that’s fun to swirl around in the glass. Aroma is rather faint but chili and peaty, somewhat reminiscent of an imperial stout. I am rather impressed with Moling’s flavor – extremely pronounced malts and barley as advertised, with a club soda backwash. Has great carbonation and interesting metallic/chowdery aftertaste (in a positive sense). Also provides a high-gravity hops kick going down and in the stomach. At $1.99 for a 500 ml bottle this is one to put on the weekly shopping list!

Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest and labelled as Carlow Molings Red (same abv). Nice ruby ale. Roast nutty flavour. Lighter than a Stout, with some meatl, but very nice. Good balance and length of flavour. Liked this a lot.

I tried this beer on October 27, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a beautiful translucent red colour with a 1 inch tan coloured head. The aroma was hoppy and slightly sour. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The taste was hoppy as well, with some bitterness on the side of the tongue.
