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.

50 cl bottle, Winnipeg. Slightly reddish amber colour, nice hop aroma. Lighter bodied than expected but nice flavor regardless, smooth with a clean finish.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
500ml Bottle: Pours dark red and brown, very small ivory head. The aroma is sweet malts, grains, and faint hops. Flavour brings through the sweet malt and hops, adds in touches of breadiness and fruit. Well balanced, tasty.

I tried this beer on October 27, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a beautiful translucent red colour with a 1 inch tan coloured head. The aroma was hoppy and slightly sour. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The taste was hoppy as well, with some bitterness on the side of the tongue.

Aroma is caramel, yeast and floral. Brown color with ruby hilites. Beige head that lacked retention. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is malt, floral, almost chocolate notes. The finish is low level roasted malt and a very light bitter. Drinks very well.

500mL bottle: Poured, looks like a glass of cola with nice frothy tan head. Aroma is slightly methanic with hints of malt. Spicy, dry with lasting bitter aftertaste. Decent palate. Good beer.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 9, 2007
500ml bottle under the name Molings Traditional Celtic Beer.
Pours a deep cherry brown with a small tan head. Aroma is pleasant. Nutty, bready, a little yeasty and sweetly floral as well a nice chocolate note. Warms up adding some smoke and red grape scents. Light bodied feel. Low carbonation. Flavour has some chocolate malts and a little bit of fruit, Ending dry and lightly chocolaty, bitter and smoky. I think this one is a little underrated. I loved it, one of my new favourites, for sure.

3.5
StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
500ml bottle - pours deep reddish copper, clear, and white a medium off-white head. Looks good, leaving lots and lots of lace behind. Aroma is light with dark fruit, some caramel, some grain, but fairly average in terms of distinctiveness. Flavour however is muh more interesting - begins with sharp herbal hops, cherries and sweet caramel malt before slowly moving towards a roasty, smokey finish with traces of chocolate and nuts. Aftertaste is quite long as well. Good stuff. Hindered only by a slight metallic flavour at the beginning of the sip which last somewhat into the finish.
