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.

Fairly typical Irish ale, with a nice berry note in the otherwise dry flavor. Unfortunately it’s overcarbonated; too bad because it was on its way to being a nice brew.

joergen (25140) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
Red colour with a small beige head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of grain. Malty flavour with notes of grain and caramel, with a hoppy finish. Very drinkable, but an average beer.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Pours a deep dark brown red color with a nice amount of foam slightly offwhite head. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly caramely and a tad bit of almost belgian spices. Flavor is very watery with a slight fruit flavor that quickly dissapears and replaced by a mostly dry finish. Overall, a decent watery brew.

UnsofistaCat (240) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Nose was practically absent. Amber red, with small lace. Pretty boring, I was expecting more. Grassy taste offset by some bitterness. I detected no sweet malt finish as promised.

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.

sunevdj (3731) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
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.

Bottle. Deep red/brown appearance is a pleasure to look at. Sweet malt aroma is complemented by fruity strawberry and pomegranate, and a slight whiskey note. Palate evolves pleasantly from gritty to smooth. Flavour begins with nice, dry malt, evolves to a fruity middle and then flattens out with a watery finish. Slightly above average overall.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Pours a dark reddish-brown colour with a full, off white head. Scattered polka dot lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasent, mildly malted, slight caramel and lightly roasted coffee. Taste is lighter as well, not a lot of carbonation, so retention is poor. But taste is sweet and creamy.

MishkinBeer (73) - , New York, USA - DEC 18, 2008
The pint is deep red in color as its namesake suggests. It has a thin body and watery consistency. Flavors include chocolate, molasses, and some nuttiness. Not too hoppy. Although the beer has a pleasant aroma before the sip, you are left with a skunky aftertaste which hurts the overall experience.

This was very nice, deep taste, off white head, bread notes and malt, nice
