Little in the way of aroma. A nice red color. Super malty flavor. Balanced and non descript.

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.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Sampler on tap at downtown San Diego brewpub. Light caramel aroma. Roasty and caramel malt flavor, with hop bitterness at the finish. Nicely balanced.

Kroney (200) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours reddish copper. Aroma is surprisingly bitter forward with the malt being the secondary and last thing you smell. Taste is a complete 180 -- all malt sweetness and very muted overall flavor. Decent session beer.

o_Merlin_o (193) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a beautiful red tinged golden brown. Zero head. And I truly mean zero. The top is crystal clear. Zero aroma. I can't smell a single thing. Tastes okay, but very watered down. No unpleasant off notes. Just plain and boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Pours a nice clear amber color with a white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, sweet malt, and caramel. Flavor matches aroma, very low bitterness, sweet caramel malt with toasted nuts.

keidjxz (183) - Fullerton, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours amber brown with a moderate head that leaves considerable lacing in its wake. The aroma consists of caramel, bread, nuts, toast, spruce, and wood. Tastes moderately sweet with little bitterness or sourness.

Not a very good beer at all. Your much better sticking with AleSmith and Stone beers. Malty, not very hoppy at all, did not enjoy the aftertaste.
