bread, spruce, floral, dough, leaves, banana, vanilla. I was a Fat Tire guy from Colorado before I moved to San Diego. This beer is all that Fat Tire wants to be with none of the hangover. Fat tire is a great beer but the hangovers are crushing. Not with Red Trolley

theread (58) - Wagga Wagga, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Dan Murphy Wagga. Poured nice red colour but the head was thin and didn’t last too long. Nice caramel and dried fruit taste but not as strong and lasting as I would have expected after being told about this one. Easy to drink and could cause dramas with the 5.8% alcohol as it could sneak up on you if you had a few.

bastarda (294) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
shared with Konfuzzi Dec/15. aromas of dark caramel malts with a nice hint of wood/oak. Tastewise quite a let-down, too watery, diluted caramels, flat, boring.

Rating #1534 - 20.03.2015 - On tap at San Diego Zoo Nice amber/orange colour with a decent white/tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is sweet, toffee malt,. Taste is very strong, caramel malt and a hint of currant. Bold malt forward amber that is quite drinkable.

Fisler (297) - Bamberg, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2015
Schöne rote Farbe, zügige Perligkeit. In der Nase Röstmalz, Pflaume, Karamell. Im Trunk kräftig malzig, leichte Frucht, mittig alkoholisch, im Abgang nochmal stärker Malz. Sehr schön rund und doch komplex. Sehr lecker.

AgentAle (1314) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Aroma is roasty sweet malts, caramel, raisins, cream and buttscotch. Taste 8 sweet and as aroma. Well balanced light hop profile. Appearance is a clear bronze body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

matthewjk (1022) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Looks good and is smooth, but doesn’t strike me as a good red. I can’t detect it on the nose or tongue. It should have a,little bite, but this thing is too caramel right through. One pint pour.

Pours red, bit of foam. Taste is malty. Smooth and a bit caramel-sweet. Simple, not hoppy, sessionable. Red ale. Bit too much caramel for me though.
