Friday's Beer!

JUST because we are zeroing in St. Patrick's Day I thought I'd open a couple of these .....

It's Moling's Traditional Celtic Beer!
And we delved into this back in February and when I tried it then I thought to garner a couple more for the store room and a little St. Paddy's treat!

They Call it Celtic Red Ale ..... Check out the web site for Carlow Brewing of Ireland.

It's a 500ml bottle at 4.3abv......

This one pours into a substantial cream coloured head and the body is clear and deep in the amber range. The froth settles down within a few minutes to a thin cap of lace and the beer continues to produce a steady stream of effervescence as long as there remains something in the glass.

The aroma is strong on the hops and these ones are very much like a citrus garden. I smell the earth and the flowers and it takes a while with the nose in the glass to pick up the malts. They are there but the hops just come on strong. I find it really quite pleasant.

Over the tongue this beer is smooth and clean. There's a little bite from the hops and then the toasty taste of malt ....... leaving a pleasant and clean feeling at the back end of it all.
Very nice and I could certainly enjoy one or two tall glasses of this grand gargle!

And so .... an Irish Toast : May neighbours respect you, Trouble neglect you, The angels protect you, And heaven accept you.

Shucks I almost forgot ..... get on over to dustmybroomdotcom for Darcey's picks of brew and blues!
