COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Biscuity malts and strong fruity esters with soapy, floral hops in the nose. Clear, amber coloured body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, off white, nitro (?) head that lasts throughout and coats the glass. Caramel malt flavour is cut short before being allowed to express itself by overly strong bitterness that lingers. Fruity esters are also buried beneath the strong hops. Medium body with lively, lightly prickly carbonation that almost makes up for the nitro blandness. Sampled on tap at the brewpub in Temple Bar (May-06).

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2004
Draught at The Porterhouse WC2. A mid brown beer with a nasty creamy head. The aroma and taste are mostly malty with a bit of fruitiness. OK I guess.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 8, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 20. This draft brew from the Porterhouse brew pub in London poured a small sized head of foamy white colored finely sized bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing and a uncarbonated transparent red brown colored body. The aroma was mild with malt hop sweaty sock notes and the mouth feel was smooth with a mild malt hop flavor.

harrisoni (12666) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden with Yogi Beera, Pivo, ChrisO and Kook. Too cold to get a good aroma, but I was assured by the others that it smelt of sweaty shoes. Some red berry fruit, not a lot of other flavour. Creamy and a bit bland

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2010
Draught at the Wharf Aalborg, on St. Patricks Day, under the name Red Connolly. The colour is amber/redish, with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, sweet malts and some fruity notes. Flavour is the same as the aroma. There is also a small amount of bitter hops, some biscuity malts, floral notes. It has a medium body and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall an average beer, and deffinetly not the best Porterhouse beer!
