Dobry Red Irish Ale. Mosna, jakby kożuchowa piana i rudawy z odcieniami krwistej czerwieni kolor. W smaku intensywnie aromatyczno gożkawy. Polecam

Classic red ale from the best Brewpub you can find in Dublin. Malt caramel and medium alcohol. Good carbonatation and nice head.

Slightly roasted nose with a bit of hay, caramel, and bread in the malt - fermented fruit and grassy hop - a bit doughy - perhaps a hint of clove, raisins, and chocolate... Pours a great golden red that’s clear and sparkling, lumpen frothy off-white head (fairly generous)... Overall very sweet taste - mild bitter bite up front that quickly dissipates and then rounds sweetly into a caramel desert sort of finish - not as much hops as I would have expected from a red - I’d forgotten I was drinking Irish vs. an American red... Extremely palateable and approachable even for a novice - it’s light, thin, and creamy with a soft carbonation and a slow finish.
Overall, I’m a big fan of American Red Ales so this wasn’t quite what I was craving at the time - but put this alongside Killian’s and other Irish Reds and I’ll pick it in a heartbeat. This is quality stuff.

Nice red color but a bit hazy. Little head. Smells like they used a hint of chocolate malt. The taste is a nice sweet red ale taste with a touch of chocolate. As you continue to drink the taste grows on you. Its a light, medium bodied beer with mild hoppiness. Its not what i was expecting for an irish ale but good the same.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: moderate-low malt aroma with caramelly notes and slight diacetyl. clean fermentation profile and no hops discernible. APPEARANCE: dark ambar to reddish copper. translucent. low beige head with average retention. TASTE: very little caramel flavour with a roasted presence. medium-low bitterness with a dry and somewhat roasted finish. clean fermentation profile. PALATE: medium-light to light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a good irish red ale more balanced towards roasted and dry finish, but still a good style example.

Tap. Beautiful creamy head. Nice brown body. Balanced aroma of fruit and coffee. The flavour contains much coffee, some chocolate and a some sweet fruit. A full palate. Interesting combination of fruit and coffee, it works well here. I get a stout-feeling from this beer. (Porterhouse Dublin, 16.03.07)

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.
