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.

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.

o_Merlin_o (202) - 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

cafgen (192) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Amber color with almost no head. Caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is totally caramel. Tastes similar to the Alaskan Amber. Good, but to sweet for a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavidAust (190) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Nice drop. Had several times in the last two weeks, must say I like it less each time - not sure why. Perhaps the batch was on it’s last legs by the time it got to Australia. The foam on the first few were reasonable and held OK, but the one last night hardly formed and didn’t hold. Nice reddish brown colour - tastes of caramel and malt. Length of palate is medium, longer than a larger - shorter than other dark ales. Overall happy, but will look for another Irish Red Ale to become a regular other than this one.

beerguy00 (186) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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.

Drank from a bottle. Nice, complex aroma. Strong flavoored caramel malts with hints of cherry.

Kurtos (181) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a Bronze-Red colour. Aroma’s of mainly caramel and sultana’s. Taste. Definitely can taste the Caramel as others have stated, but also notice Black liquorice flavours along with a slight currant flavour, almost no hop flavours but it does finish with a slight bitterness. Palate. This is quite thick and a little syrupy in the mouth. Overall. This is a beer that delivers a nice sweetness, yet isn’t too sweet and has no off flavours. This beer would be very good with sticky date pudding and other desserts.
