Super malty aromas, all caramel and bread. Pours clear copper-red with a white head. Caramel flavors and a sweet finish.

Can you say Scotch Ale? If there were any amount of hops in here it isn’t much. Aroma is soft caramel, hints of toffee brown sugar. Appearance is cloudy red with almost no head. Taste is sticky sweet and not in the vinous way, malt malt and more malt but in a simplistic way. Palate is thick and heavy. Not what I was expecting or hoping for. Quite heavy and simple.

Taster + growler. Pours clear amber. This is, as advertised, a darker, hoppier version of Red Trolley. Predominately sweet, the hop profile is subtle but welcome. Very easy drinker; 8% is well-hidden. I would be happy if this was in KS’s regular rotation.

Pours a slightly ruby red with slight lacing from a head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel. Definite caramel and slight souring taste. This is a darn good beer. Pair it with pork (I did - excellent choice).

22 FL OZ ($9.99) pretty good beer. first taste is a lot of fruit and finishes with alcohol on the palate. head a good head, and an easy taste. I had the 2014 release and is rated at 8.5% ABV and 40 IBU. very easy going beer if not for the alcohol, needs a better masking to make this any better.

Appearance: Nice deep red color, okay head.
Smell: Big caramel in the nose.
Taste: Sweet and malty, with hops punching in mid-taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body.
Drinkability: Smooth and balanced. Off The Rails is my go to beer for something with big malts and then some big hops.
