I like this beer. It’s pretty to look at, smell’s great, and is very flavorful, especially considering I’ve only had it from a bottle. It’s got a bit of sweetness to it with a bitter finish. Very smooth going down considering the amount of carbonation. My aunt lives right next to the brewery, so I should go try it from tap there.

Had it at Karl Strauss La Jolla. I thought it was pretty decent, it was sort of sweet with a lingering taste of dates.

A malty liquid that when languishing on the tongue reminds me of days gone by enjoying a butterscotch sundae with my parents

bread, spruce, floral, dough, leaves, banana, vanilla. I was a Fat Tire guy from Colorado before I moved to San Diego. This beer is all that Fat Tire wants to be with none of the hangover. Fat tire is a great beer but the hangovers are crushing. Not with Red Trolley

Not the sort of beer I would normally drink, but I had heard good things and wanted to give it a try. A beautiful colour, with what I thought was dark caramel/brown sugar aroma. Much the same on the taste, caramel and toffee. A much lighter body than I was expecting. Not a bad beer for a change of pace, I could only drink one of these though, not sessionable in my opinion at all.

This is the first beer I had from karl strauss and the one that made me a fan. I enjoy that roasted malts and toffee like flavors with hints of dates and currants amazing beer. The first dark beer that I enjoyed.

Very drinkable red ale. Good aroma, color and body. Enjoyed the beer a couple of minutes ago. Good caramel malt flavor.

This is a great red, full bodied ale. The beer doesnt taste like a full bodied beer because it is so easy to drink. Very smooth with a fruity like finish to it.
