Not a huge fan of Ambers, not a huge fan of Karl Strauss. This one is just OK. Let's just say it's drinkable.

I’m a native San Diegan and I seriously wanted to like this beer to honor my San Diego roots, however, it just didn’t have the flavor I expected from it.

not bad, not too great, very drinkable but lacks any further distinction, especially in the flavor department. Taste is just average.

Dark amber rose--nice looking, small to medium tan head, rich tasting, almost musty "thick;" reminiscent of Christmas ale (julebrygg). Would be great with some grilled food, cozy next to a firepit--definitely for ale beer lovers! [Like the packaging too!]

When out to dinner I find myself trying new beers if possible, but having the dependability of red trolley is always nice too.

With hints of resin, herbs, caramel, cereal, nuts, and roasty undertones, this easily-consumed beer has lively carbonation which gives it a light, pleasant finish.

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

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

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.
