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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - 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 (7037) - 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.

Gorbalev (2958) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2006
My bottle shared with hogtown Harry and Blankboy. Deep red, nice sized bubbly head. Looks great. Aroma. Wow, lots here! Fresh coffee, very dry, sweet toffee - a fantastic aroma. Taste follows through on the promise of the aroma. Lovely fresh coffee roast taste, very nutty and sweet. Maybe just a little thin, but the mouthfeel is medium and foamy. Wow, an outstanding quaffable Canadian beer. Maybe this is what an Irish ale is supposed to take like and every one else has just got it all wrong.

blankboy (6286) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry and tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear deep ruby with an average size lasting foamy off-white head. Nice aroma of Goldings hops and roasty malt. Sweet flavour follows the aroma along with some fruit and a decent bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Pretty good.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, tupalev’s bottle. Deep clear ruby with an average creamy-foamy beige head. Surprisingly roasty dry malt aroma, sweet and dusty, nutshell bitterness - like a mild sweet old style porter - perhaps a little syrupy. Taste is similar, quite grainy, strong tangy-yeast and bitter nutshell finish but give it credit, roastiest "red" I’ve ever tasted. Slightly wan body, bitter and astringent, very long linger on the tongue, a tad harsh - interesting, well done.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 650 ml bottle courtesy of OKBeer. Deep copper-coloured brew with a thin off-white head. Nice sweet malty aroma. Toffee, toast, caramel and sweet dark bread. Light earthy aroma in here as well. Flavour is as it smells, sweet toffee, toast and an earthy yeast. Just enough bitterness to balance it off. Lingering bready sweetness with a hint of spicy/earthy golding flavour. Nice tasty session beer.
