COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Fresh leafy hops nose, some caramel and candied malt, clear ruby, with a small tight toffee head, nice lace. Taste is caramel, treacle, malt, hops and a good nuttiness as well. Well balanced, light bodied, a fine toffee creaminess, dry, bitter finish. Good.

rustan (13) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2008
underwhelming. pour light copper with 2 finger head. aroma unremarkable. palate thin and flat. flavor tawny, balanced and slightly acrid in the end. more of a session beer.

drpimento (3642) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Kind of like this beer. Poured with a nice head which mostly dissapated and some lace. Good reddish amber color. Mild malty and roasty aroma with little hops. Perhaps a little fizzy in the mouth which also leads to a sharpness on the tongue. Still, it’s not overly sweet and is drinkable. It gets even better as it warms a bit. Having a draft of this in Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2008
pours a dark caramel color with a one finger fluffy cream colored head. aroma is toasted malt and a touch of hops and nuts with a little dark fruit. has a light to medium body with good lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with dust. i will pass.

alobar (3800) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Reddish brown color with no head. Not much aroma. Some hops, but not much better. A decent Irish Red-not much to brag about, but nothing to offend either.

2.5
zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2008
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is smoky and a little malty with some earthen notes. Flavor is a little sour at the start with flavors of boiled vegetables, stale biscuits, and some dampness. Metallic finish. Not very good.

thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Very nutty and smokey aroma, with a dark red color. Bitter smokey flavor. I really enjoy this beer. I don’t know what it is, but I like drinking it.

Viper666 (3287) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2008
Bouteille 500ml étiquetée sous le nom de « Moling’s Traditional Celtic Beer », courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur rouge-brune et claire. Nez malté de caramel aux petites notes rôties, léger de biscuits, de pain et de houblon herbeux, (rappelant le thé) aux faibles notes terreuses et florales ainsi que des notes fruitées (agrumes) et des traces de tabac de cigarette. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen (notes croustillantes) et une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes aqueuses. Notes fruitées (agrumes) accompagné d’un léger goût de tabac de cigarette ainsi que des notes de grains de malt lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel moyennement sucré et aux notes rôties ainsi qu’un léger goût de pain grillé et de biscuits au miel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume asséchante de houblon floral, légèrement herbeux (thé et herbe mouillée) et aux notes terreuses jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec des notes de tabac de cigarette et des traces de noix.

3.5
Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 13, 2008
pours a clear reddish-brown colour under a robust pale beige foam; nice lace; earthy and biscuity maltiness; some notes of ginger bread and a touch of berries; medium-bodied and with a fair earthy bitterness; rather high carbonation; quite dry biscuity and fruity finish - a nice one
