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.

Great color and nice aroma. I was not fond of the nutty aftertaste and strong earthy flavors. Not a bad beer just not for me.

Nocturne (843) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
650ml bottle. Clear amber pour with chunks of white head. Light twiggy hop aroma. Sweet caramel tones on the tongue. Light blackcurrant fruit lurking at the edges. Decent enough, with just about enough character to make it interesting.
