COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong Moylan's brew is what keeps those Irish eyes a smiling. Its deep amber radiance has been described by our brewer as the most visually enticing beer. This ale's rich malty flavor, full body, invigorating aroma, and expansive finish empower it to be extremely satisfying and repeatedly enjoyed. Great Western Two Row Pale Malt, De Wolf-Cosyns' Caravienne and Munich Malts are allied to provide the 1.070 beginning specific gravity, while Fuggle and Liberty hops balance this sweetness. A classic rich and malty ale from Ireland. Unlike most "want-to-be" red ales, Moylan's red has a rich caramel character balanced with a low hop profile.

22. Pours deep ruddy amber with a thin grayish film and maybe a smattering of lace. Light toasty and somewhat sweaty nose. Medium body, active carb, Toasty, nutty mid-palate. Not much happening here. I generally expect a heck of a lot more than this from Brendan Moylan. But, then, Ive only really tried his famous stuff. Everybody has their fallback beers they sell to the general public. :-)

jefcon (1684) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Dusty red in color with a small ring of head. Aromas are malty with a generic candy sugar sweetness. Surprisingly sweet on the palate, full but short mouthfeel. Sweet finish is also slick and wet. An odd, but drinkable, beer.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2008 Pours a very dark opaque red with a small white head. Smells very malty. Taste is initially a little metallic, kind of sweet, good finish, better than a Killians. I like it, I would buy it again,

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Poured an orangish-red with almost no head. While being very malty, this is not my favorite Moylans brew. However, it is the best Irish Red Ive had. Some citrus bitter taste at the end.

Ungstrup (35679) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-red beer with an orange head. The aroma is very light with notes of fruit and an even slighter acidic note of grapefruit. The flavor is slightly acidic malty with primary notes of grapefruit and berries, leading to a bitter finish.
