I’ll have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. I’ll have to try this again in the proper glassware.

Pours a copperish red color with a short lived off white soapy head.The aroma is a mix of pine hops and roster malt.The taste was bitter and metallic.The body was thin with a nasty metallic aftertaste.Just not a good beer.

Bottle. Deep red brown pour, dissipating off-white head. Malty, watery, something almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not much on the nose, however. Medium (barely) body. It’s okay.

Flat muddy mouth feel. Not a ton of flavor but nothing unpleasant. It’s a perfectly acceptable beer but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours rich amber with low level carbonation and a thin head. Hints of toffee and roasted crystal malt. Flavours of caramelized toffee and bready malts dominate proceedings here with some low level ester. Very easy drinking.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2004
I like hops in my nose. Red trolley is all that. Rusty red color with a very dry but mostly barley taste (?). Fair head retention and nice lace. Sampled on tap in San Diego.

Sampler on tap at downtown San Diego brewpub. Light caramel aroma. Roasty and caramel malt flavor, with hop bitterness at the finish. Nicely balanced.
