Moylan's Danny's Irish Style Red Ale has a very thick, foamy, cream-colored head, and a fairly hazy, extremely effervescent, amber appearance, with exceptionally heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweetness, some sort of citrus, and brown bread crust. Taste is of that unusual citrus (white grape juice?), brown bread crust, a bit of tea, sweetness, and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Moylan's Danny's Irish Style Red Ale finishes mellow and easy drinking. Overall, this is delicious!

Appearance was a nice dark amber, not much carbonation, small head. Smell was malty with some caramel notes, not bad. Was looking forward to this, but then: Not a whole lot of taste up front, very light despite the ABV. More-so in the aftertaste, malty, not much else. I was actually quite let down by this one. May try again in the future.

Orang red in the color. There was a small head at the table not sure what it looked like at the tap. Little to no lacing can be seen. Mouthfeel is smooth and sweet . The taste has a lots of malt carmel a hint of bread dough and a light bitter after taste. What you would expect in an Irish red.

On-tap in the Rogue Pub on Union St, San Fran: 3rd Feb 2013.

Headless pour: red hue to the dirty orange/brown body.

Malts rule the roost here: both in the nose and the mouth. The hops do balance it out nicely and give a slight bitter finish but overall the malts sweetness pushes the flavours towards caramel and toffee like tastes.

I like the sweeter brews so this was fine in my eyes (apart from actually looking at it!).
