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.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
On-tap in the Rogue Pub on Union St, San Fran: 3rd Feb 2013. Headless pour: red hue to the dirty orange/brown body. Malts rule the roost here: both in the nose and the mouth. The hops do balance it out nicely and give a slight bitter finish but overall the malts sweetness pushes the flavours towards caramel and toffee like tastes. I like the sweeter brews so this was fine in my eyes (apart from actually looking at it!).
