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.

Bottle. [ Courtesy of OKBeer ] Light unclear amber red color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, moderate yeast, light jelly strewed strawbeery. Flavor is moderate sweet, light acidic and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

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.

500ml bottle-pours a thin retaining tan head and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-sweet toffee, peat, grass. Taste is light/medium malt-sweet toffee, peat, grass, English like/earthy/lemon-hops. OK effervescence. Thanks Ed Notch for sharing.

Lubiere (9788) - 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.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2004
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

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.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2004
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!!...

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 Pours dark ruby colour, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is a light but a bit of sweet malt sneaks out. Bit waifishly thin, flavour is on the sweet side with earthy Irish ale notes. Enjoyed it on draught at Rye's Deli in Fredericton NB.

DuffMan (6548) - 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.
