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.

Aggie80 (832) - Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Awesome color. Malty aroma rising from the head and a nice lacing going around the glass. Nice flavor that lasts well past the initial swallows.

3.3
mansquito (7131) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Pours with a tannish head that disappears really fast. Reddish brown color. Smoky fruits in the nose. Some malts in the taste along with some smokiness and some fruitiness as well. Taste is really toasted/roasted (not sure which one it is). Not a bad beer... a little different from the standard Irish Ale.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a reddish brown color with virtually no head. Dusty aroma, with light sweet caramel notes. Taste is basically the same, with an amount of astringency in the aftertaste. Hints of toffee and fruit as well. Light mouthfeel. A fine beer to try, but certainly nothing too exciting.

2.7
rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Very dark brown/black, thin off-white head. Nose is oily malt, slightly fishy, dark fruits, slight burnt. Flavor is sourish malt, too bitter, a hint of fruit in the finish w. some cocoa. I remember enjoying this in the past. Oh well.

3.2
piscator34 (2673) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Ruby in colour with above average carbonation. Aromas of vanilla caramels, a bit of fruit, and some malt. Surprisingly dry in the mouth, considering the malt forward aromas. Pale malt, minerals (especially chalk), a hint of roasted barley, and some light caramel. A pretty good session pint, but a bit too fizzy for my taste.

patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 9, 2007
bottle as Moling’s Traditional Red Ale - Pours dark read with a thin head. The aroma is of caramel malt and a little dark fruit. The flavor is of toasty caramel malts and mild fruitiness with just a little hops. It didn’t exactly blow me away and could have used some more hops bite, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit.

2.8
kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Final beer style! 12oz bottle. Pours a clear, amber-brown color; off-white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Light, dried cherries and candy sugar in the aroma. Syrupy cherries and cola in the mouthfeel: overly sweet, without all that much to it; kind of one-dimensional and bland, with a light roasted character coming through at mid-palate. Quick, dry and mineral finish.

2.9
leaparsons (10862) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Dark red and brown with a large off-white foam. Aromas are smoky and lightly roasted with caramel malts, metal and some Autumn fruit. Flavours are smoky and slightly burnt with quite a degree of bitterness. Some pear and citrus with a flat metallic note on the finish. OK.

3.2
onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2007
Dark orange with a medium head. Predominantly malty, nutty and caramel. Dry finish. A very nice Irish ale, all the more welcome given the poor qualiy of its big brand rivels.

3.1
beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Pours amber, very clear, with a soft white head. Caramel and lighly toasty flavor. Finish is earthy in the hops, dry and a faint smoked flavor. Great balance and smooth on the palate.
