This isn’t a bad trolley to be hit with, as it’s light enough to keep from squashing you flat. It tastes pretty good also, unlike that time when I was a kid and it was freezing outside and my brother told me the trolley pole tasted like caramel. At least I can taste the caramel in this one.

This had an average head.Color was a nice red-amber.Good biting dry aroma.This was a good tasting red,but it was more of an IPA to me.Not enough of the fruityness of a good red.It was tasty though

Doesn’t have the bite that I appreciate from a good red ale, but it does have a ton of caramel malts in it. Tastes something like a liquid werther’s original, with some hop bitterness. A bit unbalanced, but still tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2003 Nice ruddy color. Pretty malty. However, there was something about this brew that did not sit well with me, however. The floral notes at the finish were not balanced enough with the malts.

As with most beers it is better on tap, this one suffers a bit much in the bottle. great red color. the flavor is very well balacened so that a taster can focus on either the hops or the malt and then the various subflavors involved with each.

Pours red-brown with off-white head. Nose is bready. Well balanced malt on the tongue with some spicy hops. Chestnut and wheat notes drive this beer. Home. Not bad.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2008
served cold from tap. pours a nice amber, reddish color, with a good white head, and generous lacing. aroma is sweet, malty. flavor is pretty good, some hops but fairly mellow and easy to drink. it wasn’t a bad beer, but it was the best thing that they had on tap at the restaurant, so i gave it a shot.

grimreaperguru (251) - santee, California, USA - JUN 21, 2011
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.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Medium to dark amber. Nice head. No aroma. Somewhat malty and sweet, though not cloying. Not much hop character. Ultra clean finish. Bland.
