Flavius: Sorry Meterman more bad news for the bottle. The medical journal Lancet reported that approximately 4% of all deaths worldwide are related to alcohol. It is also thought that costs associated with these complications account for over 1% of a countries GDP. For Canada that means over $13 billion dollars a year.
Meterman: Cheers to that!
Moylan's Irish Red Ale
Ratebeer 3.04 48th percentile

I know this sounds odd but it almost tastes red. Is is possible for colour to have a taste? Right out of the glass its starts with a slight bitterness mixed with good carbonation. The nose is lush with sweet caramel and flowery hops. After the initial bitter/fizz leaves, it is on to the next phase which is a full, thick caramel malt sweetness. Upon further tastings, one can pick out slight earth flavours and peanut butter. Just when you think it is all over, you are hit with a stealth hop bitterness. The bitterness is very tame.
The tongue tingling from the bitterness/alcohol doesn't last very long.

This is a great bitter/sweet ale, in the Irish style. I plan to get it again.

More maps for L4D are pouring into the Nightware4Dead server research department. Aqualung has been kept busy.
Anything by Moylan's brewery reeks of quality. If you like your ale's a little on the sweet side, try this one. Other notable Irish red ales include Smithwicks and Caffrey's.
