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.

Vaiz (3257) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear amber pour, no head. Aroma of iced tea with loads of sugar, slightly creamy and some toffee. Flavor is quite sweet, spicy and watery. Boring and bland.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Clear copper color, small off-white head that diminishes instantly. Aroma is malts, a bit sweetish, caramel, maple syrup perhaps? Taste malts, caramel, sweetness, again some maple syrup or something similar. Average body and carbonation. Meh, not really great.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper amber colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee and grass. Flavour of toasted malts, pear, some nuttiness and mild grassy bitterness. Some metallic notes. Light bodied and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Decent.

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 10, 2014
On draught at Shade Tree Cycle - ABQ. Clear deep amber. Or with lasting white head. No big aromas but light-to-medium body with early malty flavor balance then dry finish. Clean hops and malt make for a nice easy-drinking ale.

boomerbrew (143) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2014
22 oz bottle- Aroma was light as well the initial drink but then hits you with some citrus from the hops. Medium body of malts flavors and mouth-feel with a nice bittering feel and flavoring that lasts afterwards, but not where it’s a bad bittering aftertaste. Off orange color with white head.

RiccelliAdriel (5) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 11, 2014 does not count
Fantástica "Red Ale" se não a melhor neste estilo, o retrogosto de caramelo é mais equilibrado que o comum, possui uma excelente carbonatação e um corpo incrível quase que cremoso.

SlackerMads (1410) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy to unclear hazelnut red brown with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Grain, crackers, raisins, caramel, dark berries, light herbal/flowery hop notes. Medium body, oily texture but the finish is a bit thin. Light/medium sweet and bitter. Pretty easy drinking malt focused brew, but I don’t find it overly interesting.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 3, 2014
On tap @ Moylans. Amber/orange pour with an off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel, earthy hops, and toffee. Kind of watery, though. Some light esters. Flavor is just kind of sweet. Watery mouthfeel. Earthy hops provide light bitterness. Caramel, toffee, and grass. A fair amount of apple, too.
