Pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a note of sherry, light butterscotch and a very subtle bitterness. Full bodied and smooth.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Poured from a 22oz bomber. Pours a deep red, with malty aromas, and big frut aroma as well. Almost an apple or pear. Soft on the mouth, light earthy hop flavor. This is a pretty good beer. Not great but pretty good. It’s too bad this isn’t just how red trolley is always made.

jonno (2441) - JAPAN - AUG 12, 2012
Some people were going gaga over this, nut i found it a plain, if oddly rewarding easy drinking big beer. No great projection of flavour - some burnt sugar, sticky toffee and a moderate to heavy bitter finish. Nothing really distinct, but enjoyable all the same.

rosenbergh (9922) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/19/14. Thanks to Timo A! Clear red amber color with a small tan head. Berries, sweet dark fruits and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is sweet hops, dark fruits, strawberry, grainy malt and mild bitterness. Quite balanced but not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
