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.

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!!

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.

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.

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

Wow, what a step up from Kilkenny. Great dark red colour with a solid white head. Aroma and taste, initially, are of roasted smokey nature. This eventually gives way to a nice malty sweetness. Very good.

Bottled. Strong aroma of raisin and herbal hops. Dark red color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, light bitter, herbal, very hoppy, raisin, light toffee. Very nice session beer if it was a little less sweet.

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.

Pours a clear dark red with a nice ig cream off white head that leaves tons of lace. Smell is some caramel and sweet fruit with a hint of roasted malt. Taste is a huge hit of sweet roasted malt up front with a bit of fruit on the finish and a very faint hop presence. Great beer.
