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.

Dark red, very weak caramel/creme brulee aroma, somewhat creamy weak hoppy finish. A good beer to have with a pub meal - By itself, I would go for Picaroon’s Best Bitter.

Pours red with a creamy barley wine look. Lasting hop bitterness. Toffee, toast, vanilla, and earthy malts. Some citric hop in the finish. Quite nice.

Floral hop aroma. Mahogony red. Biting but also mettalic. Peppery and creamy, sourish finish. An interesting session it was. Bit of nuts. . Light even watery on palate. Nice effort and pleasant surprise again from New Brinswick. Thanks for sharing Mr_kimchee

Red fruit with a light citrus touch...Lacks caramel for the style and focuses too much on the sweet, cough-dropiness of the fruity (cranberry, cherry) malt...Light roastiness tries to add complexity but the overcarbonation shies it away...Thanks OKBeer!!...

Fruity, brown sugar, mocha yogurt aromas. Clear brown with off-white head that recedes to ring. Fruity up front chased by roasted malt bitterness. Light body. High carbonation. A bit watery. Bottle (sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere). Thanks OKBeer.

Reddish brown hue. Nice head initially quickly becomes a decent off-white film. That’s one shy nose, which I guess is fine with the style. There’s a mild roasted malt character in here as well as a cranberry fruitiness and a nougat coffee thing going on. Palate is fruity with more of that fruity roasted nuts, cherries, maybe maple even as this is quite sweet. The beer in itself is drinkable, but the style’s potential is so limited in my opinion.. A bit overcarbonated mouthfeel, rather thin. Mild Bitter finish. Your average beer.

Amber-chestnut colour. Fruit aroma (apricot, plum) with liquorice, hint of bubblegum. Fruity palate - plums and bubblegum again, with watermelon. Background of light bitterness and wood. Kent Goldings seldom do it for me, but if they do you'll probably like this more than I as it is a decently made, balanced beer.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
Dark red/amber colour with a frothy, mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is toffee and a bit of milk chocolate. Flavour is moderately sweet (toffee and caramel) and nutty. Somewhat sour finish with a nice smooth surrounding bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly creamy, but refreshing mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 This is a great red beer! Certainly one of the best that I have had. It has a very flavourful taste and a good aftertaste - reminds me of dark chocolate. I highly recommend this one for anyone visiting the Maritimes!!
