maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from Asahiya. Buttery toffee aroma, some prune, too. Reddish-brown color, with thin head. Malty, cherries in initial; mid sweetens up more; final maxes out the sweetness to cherry cough drops. Thin-medium body. A bit flat. Overall, quite pleasant. The cherry notes certainly dominate.

Not the sort of beer I would normally drink, but I had heard good things and wanted to give it a try. A beautiful colour, with what I thought was dark caramel/brown sugar aroma. Much the same on the taste, caramel and toffee. A much lighter body than I was expecting. Not a bad beer for a change of pace, I could only drink one of these though, not sessionable in my opinion at all.

The beer that really started my love of craft. Sadly I have moved away from San Diego and I’m unable to get anymore.

The bomb.com! When I walked into the Liquor store, I was in the mood for something to celebrate Obama’s victory to. I spotted Red Trolley Ale, and I bought it . I figured I had nothing to lose. When I opened it, my palate went crazy!!! I loved the instant taste of toffee, which is another reasons why I bought it. Yes, it’s sweet, but not sweet enough to dislike. It’s like the perfect date, I thought! Anyway, It says it’s 5.8% alcohol, but I could swear it was more than that because i was feeling tipsy after one and a half! It was totally worth my cash,I mean my date’s cash, haha!!

imaragingbull (565) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear lightly hazy amber ruby with small off white head. Chalky malty floral aromas. Toffee, biscuit, sickly sweet malts, jelly, grapes, currants and floral aromas. Medium body, medium carbonation - a touch dry, but sickly sweet tofee and artificial sweetness through the finish with an ongoing floral hop character.
