Bright orangey-amber. All crystal malt and bread crust. What more can I say - yawn.

Very dark auburn color. Light caramel and some fruit in the nose; some hops in there as well. The body is caramel sweet with just touch of hops towards the end.

Not particularly hoppy, which is just fine with me. A touch of sourness, which adds complexity. A conservative, middle-of-the-road ale. Aimed at not offending anyone, perhaps. The pic of Karl Strauss on the label looks like Mikhail Gorbachev, I swear! Lots of caramel malt.

This beer was pretty gross. Nice deep red color. Tasted malty and metallic.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Medium copper red color with minimal head. Sweet caramel malt body with decent palate, but a bland finish. Your standard "red ale".

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 13, 2003
The best of their sampler. A decent amount of hops and a touch of malt. Pretty good for a maligned style often horribly mangled by chain brewpubs.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2003
A deep amber color with a lacing head barely noticeable on the surface. A Bitter edge right up front with a metallic taste. God...I hate metallic. A little malty in taste and aroma. Hated it.

I would like to add to Dogbrick's comments... Micah managed to STEAL a Red Trolley glass from the Uva Cafe. Who steals from Disneyland, the happiest place on earth? I'm so ashamed! Anyhow, this was quite good, certainly above average.

Reddish amber with off white head.Carmel malt aroma with faint hops.Mostly sweet malt flavor with a light hop finish.

Got this on draught at the Uva Cafe in Downtown Disney, after pretty much giving up on finding any decent beer in the Disney parks. Pretty amber color with a medium beige head. Nice malty aroma balanced with a faint whiff of hops. Flavor is nicely balanced sweet malt and hops with a light hoppy finish. Worth seeking out if you are at Disney and are sick of only finding Bud.
