"At last an Irish Red Ale with a traditional hop flavour to balance the fruit character of the yeast and the luscious caramel flavour notes delivered from the malts used, as opposed to artificially added."
Ingedients: Pale, Crystal, Wheat and Chocolate Malts; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Golding hops.

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.

strugglebox88 (3) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011 does not count
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.

Had this one on tap at the brew pub in the Temple Bar District of Dublin. Reddish hue with a nitrogenated head. Roasty with some maltiness. Good nose. Overall very tasty.

KM (397) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
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)

Pinball (11365) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2009
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.
