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.

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, itís more refined and balanced. It has a nice bittering on the finish. This is an amazing specimen brewed and true to itís 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 donít agree with the last several raters!

IrishBoy (3825) - 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!

irishliberal (4) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2006 does not count
This beer had a very malty texture, which made it more like drinking cough syrup than beer. Taste wasnít all that apaealing, though it did have a hint of caramel in it.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2006
22 oz. bottle $4.95 from Spirit Haus Amherst, MA: Pours an orange-reddish hue. Small sticky off white/orangeish head. Sweet grainy, vegetal, somewhat unpleasant baked bean nose. Sweet, caramel/toffee, nutty, wood, roasty grain, light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet sweet and sourish. Bitter, citric, dirty foot, stinky hops. Maybe we should revise the style, or maybe get rid of it...

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Disclaimer: Iím generally not a fan of reds, but figured that if anyone could make one that appeals to me, Moylan would be the one. Expectations were not fully satisfied however. Poured dark red with a nice fluffy head. Mouth had much more of a tart note than I expected, while not entirely unpleasant, it was enough to make me not want to finish the glass. Too bad that IMHO this was not up to the high standards of his other brews.

Was not expecting the tart notes out of this one, in fact there were no real flavors that I expected, I would not choose this to be representative of the style.

OldGrowth (2654) - North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottle, from Julioís. Ok nose, sweet. Malty, nutty, yeasty, caramel. Clean brownish orange color, good head that slowly reduced to a ring. Minor lacing. Bitter sweet flavor. Caramel, little bitter, lite fruity grape thing. Medium body, lite watery mouthfeel, mild bitterness on the finish. Tasty for an Irish red, had a similiar taste as the Kilt tilter, just milder.
