Poured an orangish-red with almost no head. While being very malty, this is not my favorite Moylans brew. However, it is the best Irish Red I’ve had. Some citrus bitter taste at the end.

Bottled. A hazy orange-red beer with an orange head. The aroma is very light with notes of fruit and an even slighter acidic note of grapefruit. The flavor is slightly acidic malty with primary notes of grapefruit and berries, leading to a bitter finish.

Nice and sweet caramel and toffee aroma. A little alcohol comes through as well. Pours copper with no head. IS very malty and sweet. Caramel dominated with some toffee flavors as well. Rich and full bodied, this beer has low carbonation is very smooth and a little dry in the finish. Overall a nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
