COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2007
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.

DuffMan (7845) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2007
Depp mahogany with a thick head that generates a lot of clingy lace. Chocolatey aroma with some figgy fruit as well. The flavour profile is much the same. Medium sweetness. Very good, almost porterish, but overcarbonation brings it down a couple of points.

Bottle. Burgundy color, large whitehead. Lots of lacing which i like. Fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Strong finish, lots of bitterness , a bit of a floral taste here as well. Another good beer from this brewery.
