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.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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 (7180) - 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 (6374) - 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 (9267) - 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.

naber (1) - CANADA - DEC 18, 2005 does not count
Its just a great red. A good long lasting head wether its from the tap or from the bottle, nice light sweetness, slightly reminisant of maple syrup. Great colour, good body, goes down smooth and easy winter spring summer or fall.

Lubiere (12802) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2005
Lightly hazed red copper ale with a medium off-white head, dense and resilient. Lots of butterscotch, fruits and herbs in aroma, with vanilla notes. In mouth, a bit too sweet, with the butterscotch/diacetyl becoming a problem, in my POV. Rather thin in mouth. Nice light hops come and help, but doesnt quite do it for me. Still, a decent offering. Thanks Bobby! March 2005 from OKBeer.
