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.

Red Trolley Ale has a great red color and a dry pleasing taste. It's not too malty or hoppy and it goes very well with food.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle from Costco. Sweet dark caramel with subtle apricot and grapefruit accents. Flavor is on the sweet side, with moderate dark toffee followed by low, stone fruit notes and moderate low bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

snoworsummer (2949) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Draft at the brewpub in RB. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head. Tastes like sweet malt, faint hops and light bitterness, with some dark fruits. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet and rich bready malt, dates and faint earthy hops.

Rex_Remes (54) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - MAR 12, 2015
OK nose .. cherry, berry, syrup, malt. Reddish amber pour. medium head. Medium body, with flavors of coffee, cherry, malt ... a bit too sweet. Oily on palate. A bit flat. Above average beer because of flavor and complexity, but a little weak on body/structure, and too sweet and caramel for me.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.

Caramel, roasty nice freshness and fruitness, maybe have to have more body and structure!
