Bottle: Poured an dark amber color with a little head. The aroma was sweet malts. The flavor were dark fruits, sweet malts and a thicker than normal feel in the mouth, for an amber ale. Overall, this beer was flavorful and enjoyable to drink.

Appearance was clear orange red with creamy off white diminishing 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, pale malts, fig, dates and toffee, no hops or alcohol. Taste are sweet malt of toffee, caramel vanillas, touch of date, fig and chocolate. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with meduim body, average length slightly English sweet dryish finish. One of the best red’s out there.

Thick white head on top of nice amber colors. Minimal aromas. About zero on the hoppy bitter side. Watery sweet caramel malt. Easy to drink lacking much character.

Bij de clam chowder uit plastic glas of fles. Ruikt zoet. Rodige kleur, prima schuim. Prima smaak, lekker fris fruitig.

on tap at karl strauss in carlsbad. okay for an amber, shame this is one of their flagship beers because it’s nothing special. very fruity like their other beers, with hints of toffee and caramel.

355mL bottle. Pours a clear deep mahogany with a nice fresh toffee apple aroma. The flavour is very very sweet toffee wow, very nice with a very light low alpha hop backing. Personally i prefer hoppy red ales but i really cant fault this beer its sweet and flavoursome.

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.

A decent amber. Slightly thick and sweet on the palate. Lots of malt character that is well balanced by the hops. I drink a lot of this at the airport every time I’m in town.

Poured from 12oz bottle an orangy-amber with little carbonation and a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel and malt with a very slight graininess. Flavor is mostly caramel and malt with a hint of nuts and honey. Palate is syrupy with a mild sweetness and a little spice on the tongue despite the lack of carbonation. Overall, a nice sipping beer not great but good.
