COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong Moylan's brew is what keeps those Irish eyes a smiling. Its deep amber radiance has been described by our brewer as the most visually enticing beer. This ale's rich malty flavor, full body, invigorating aroma, and expansive finish empower it to be extremely satisfying and repeatedly enjoyed. Great Western Two Row Pale Malt, De Wolf-Cosyns' Caravienne and Munich Malts are allied to provide the 1.070 beginning specific gravity, while Fuggle and Liberty hops balance this sweetness. A classic rich and malty ale from Ireland. Unlike most "want-to-be" red ales, Moylan's red has a rich caramel character balanced with a low hop profile.

The beer pours forth from the 22 ounce bottle an reddish orange with a demonstrative creamy white head that upon its erosion leaves a velum like coating to conceal the glass. Nose has a sour dough earthiness, somewhat sweet with a grassy tone, hints of oranges, caramel also peek though the maze. Start has a decent malt presence; mint like bitterness also present, with a touch, top is medium in feel. Finish has a stinging acidity, the hops blatantly spicy, dry as a bone aftertaste sticks to the palate like super glue, quite drinkable, a nice everyday beer.

22 oz. bomber bottle, the label states "Danny’s Irish Style Red Ale," since the ABV is 6.5%, I figured it has just been renamed, so I entered my review here instead of making a new entry. Blurb along the right side of label, sampled in a pint glass. Bottle conditioned cloudy appearance, reddish tarnished copper in color. A tight foamy pale tan head that settled into a thin, semi-sudsy lacing. Roasted caramel is the first smell I noticed, followed by toffee and a subtle fruitiness. Earthy herbal hops are in the background, hints of dry tobacco leaves. Smooth, airy moderate bodied mouthfeel, silky in the palate making this easy to consume. Gentle sweet roasted malty taste, caramel toffee and a touch grainy. Fruity tea-like hops that are mildly bitter, turn a earth spicy at the end. While the hops have a soft presence in the palate, the alcohol accentuated their fruity, spicy qualities. A lingering dry finish, sweet roasted malts with touches of spicy hops. A very nice Irish Red Ale from Moylan’s, a welcome new addition to my local stores.

Drinking from a bottle of Danny’s, Paddy presumably out of town for the day - It pours a slightly hazed reddish amber body with an okay off-white head. It has a musty yeast cake aroma covering a mildly sweet caramel scent. Somewhat flat. It tastes of overly ripe sweet apples with dull toffee and chewed caramel and a dirtiness that might be hops... oddly not tasting all that bad. The finish, however, is somewhat soiled.

Light hazy amber colour colour with a small off white head. Malty, light caramel sweet aroma with a hoppy, piney note. Malty, light sweet flavor with a hoppy and vague sour note.

Pours a hazy reddish amber with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor of green peas and hops, yuck, not good at all. The body is light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 Comments refer to bottled version. Also, beer I had was called DANNY’s Irish Style Red Ale, NOT Paddy’s. Upon opening cap, a gush of frothy white foam issued forth, running down the sides and making a good-sized mess on my counter. It did settle into the glass eventually as a dark amber fluid with a thin skin of long-lasting light tan foam covering the surface. Brown sugar and/or molasses greeted my nose upon opening, but the aroma faded fast. Subsequent sniffs provided a sublte aroma of smoky leather. Silky mouthfeel promises good things to come, and initial malt flavor seems to follow through. That is, until the metallic tang kicks in. That flaw seemed to fade as the glass of beer warmed up a bit, disappearing in favor of a barely-astringent malty flavor to linger in the mouth a bit after swallowing. For a beer relatively low in alcohol, there is still a bit of warmth to be felt. Hops are in the background and only tasted as the beer slides down the back of the tongue on its way to a happy belly. A malty, somewhat sweet beer.

Sweet burnt caramel notes, kinda cloying flavor. Much sweeter than I like, but I’ll finish the bottle.

Sample @ Wine Gallery, Boston, MA, 9/06. Pours red with a small brown head. Aroma is largely malt. Taste is malt, with heavy carbonation characteristics and a bit of caramel and rye as well. I liked this.

Bottle - 22oz. Mine was called "Danny’s Irish ..." Really boring ale. Very interesting malt body, a mix uncommon to most things I drink. That being said, its a boring complex kind of thin and very watery. The malt does have nice flavor but is really not supported by anything else and does not stand well on it own. A little sour as well.
