On nitro at the brewpub. Clear copper wtih creamy nitro head, more pronounced than the other samples. Aroma is light toast and caramel. Flavor is mild spicey and earthy hops with caramel, toasted, Munich malt, a little chalky. Medium to light creamy body with a surprisingly active carbonation level for a nitro beer. Not bad.

From tap at Charlies, Copenhagen as Dublin Red Connolly, porterhouse brewery ireland.
clear red, smooth thick vanilla head.
faint mild slightly fruity aroma.
flavor is fruity, "red" red berry sweet, very mild and round. it reminds me a lot of guinness in softness and palate even taste, only the flavor is more red berryish and a lot less stoutish than guinness.
