A hearty meat ‘n’ potatoes Irish-style ale. Its malty sweetness coats the palate like candy, and is offset in the finish with spicy Goldings hops.

Mildred’s Irish Ale is the Irish Red dry-hopped with local Goldings hops from Southan Farms.

Bottle. Poured with an average-sized, creamy, light-brown head that diminished over time to about one-finger. Good lacing. Body was a dark-red color, and slightly hazy. Aroma was of toasted malt... nice. Light to medium body on the palate, and slightly thinner than I had expected, but still with some oiliness/creaminess to it. Sweet, malty flavor with a short finish... quite good, but not as impressive as expected from its appearance. A good representation of its class.

Bouteille de 500 ml. La bière est de couleur rougeâtre avec une mousse démesurée (3/4 de mousse 1/4 de bière). Au nez on découvre des arômes de malt caramel, de houblon et de pommes rouges. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen avec une effervescence moyenne élevée. On goûte des saveurs de grain torréfié, de grain caramélisé, de houblon floral et de sucre brun.

JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Pours a dark ruby red that’s fairly opaque with a thick tan head. The aroma is heavy on roasted coffee beans, celery, burnt cookies, and caramel. The mouthfeel is smooth, with low-medium carbonation. It’s a bit thicker than most Irish Reds. The taste is coffee, sweet caramel and a mild bitter finish. The Kent hops are there, but not as much as I’d like.

Ice-cold draught pint at the Hilltop Restaurant and Bar, Fredericton ND, May 2007. Hey it was the only bar near enough our motel to walk to, so shut up....pours dirty copper into the 20 oz frosted glass, with a touch of head...nose is reasonably malty/toasty, assertive, lightly cidery when cold....but alas, on the tongue its infected, cardboardy....the more you drink the more grossly vegetal and spoilt it tastes....low carbonation, muddy and slick mouthfeel. My guess is unclean tap lines or a very old keg at this place, which seemed to be serving 90% Bud Light to families and youngsters. I have a bottle and will re-try as this seemed a particularly poor sample.
