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.

Cask at the brewpub. Malty aroma. Reddish amber color with a beige head that laces a bit. Starts medium malty, smooth and creamy, medium mouthfeel. The hop bitterness only arrives towards the finish, and balances the remaining malt.

I felt that this red ale was much deeper in flavor than most red ales I have had, which isn’t that many. It had that same chalkyness I get from guinness, but the beer was lighter and less viscous making the chalk almost reasonable. Low hops for sure. Very drinkable.

scanman (149) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - DEC 11, 2006
This is a fine red ale. Pours a nice copper, amber with a nice head and fine lacing. Nice balance of malts and hops with a strong bitter kick. Recommended.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 22 oz bottle. Poured a dark amber with a tan head. Nose of malts and hops. Has a yeasty flavor and sweet and sticky mouthfeel. This may be decent for an Irish Red, but I am thinking this is not my favorite kind of beer.

The look of this beer is as far as this beer goes. It has amazing color and contour but overall this beer was too smooth for me. It offered no kick in the face like the Irish I know. I need some flavor Moylans. Give me the flavor. If I wanted water... I’d be drinking water.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Pours a rich amber color w/ a shallow creamy froth. Aroma is yeasty sweet with toasted grahm crackers. Nectar full w/ soft residual effers. Flavors of fresh baked toast with a fruity character, not sweet. The malt componant is not decadent, it’s more refined and balanced. It has a nice bittering on the finish. This is an amazing specimen brewed and true to it’s Irish yernings. Rich yet well balanced. Connoisseurs choice! Highly recommended.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
22 oz bottle, from BevMo. Pours reddish copper with a moderate sized beige head that diminishes mostly. Rich with fruity and toffee malts, light roast coffee notes, herbs and subtle spice along with floral hops. Earthy, roasty, caramel maltiness, vegetal notes, coffee grounds, brown sugar and black tea in flavor. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Enjoyable overall, I guess I don’t agree with the last several raters!

Ratman197 (9036) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a quickly disapating ivory head. Aromas of carmel, malt and a hint of chilies. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of malt, carmel, light toffee and a hint of chilies with a smooth malty finish.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Two inches of beer poured down the side gave 5 inches of Beige head; and a sour malty nose came from the Redish-amber body; flavor was fairly tart with caramel maltiness, but not any hops showing. Tart but not real sour, but not what I expected from an Irish ale!

This beer had a very malty texture, which made it more like drinking cough syrup than beer. Taste wasn’t all that apaealing, though it did have a hint of caramel in it.
