Nice drop. Had several times in the last two weeks, must say I like it less each time - not sure why. Perhaps the batch was on it’s last legs by the time it got to Australia. The foam on the first few were reasonable and held OK, but the one last night hardly formed and didn’t hold.
Nice reddish brown colour - tastes of caramel and malt.
Length of palate is medium, longer than a larger - shorter than other dark ales.
Overall happy, but will look for another Irish Red Ale to become a regular other than this one.

Red Trolley Ale has a great red color and a dry pleasing taste. It's not too malty or hoppy and it goes very well with food.

Bottle from Costco. Sweet dark caramel with subtle apricot and grapefruit accents. Flavor is on the sweet side, with moderate dark toffee followed by low, stone fruit notes and moderate low bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

Draft at the brewpub in RB. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head. Tastes like sweet malt, faint hops and light bitterness, with some dark fruits. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet and rich bready malt, dates and faint earthy hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
OK nose .. cherry, berry, syrup, malt. Reddish amber pour. medium head. Medium body, with flavors of coffee, cherry, malt ... a bit too sweet. Oily on palate. A bit flat. Above average beer because of flavor and complexity, but a little weak on body/structure, and too sweet and caramel for me.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.
