As with most beers it is better on tap, this one suffers a bit much in the bottle. great red color. the flavor is very well balacened so that a taster can focus on either the hops or the malt and then the various subflavors involved with each.

I would like to add to Dogbrick's comments... Micah managed to STEAL a Red Trolley glass from the Uva Cafe. Who steals from Disneyland, the happiest place on earth? I'm so ashamed! Anyhow, this was quite good, certainly above average.

very cremey, smooth, and quite malty. peanuts, toast... hops are slightly pronounced with floral and citrus notes. aroma of toffee, primarily. downfall is the prickly, yet crisp, but watery mouthfeel that seems to override the cremey palate. whatever, i liked it a lot. but i think having it at a hookah bar in downtown San Diego helped a lot...

I like this beer. Itís pretty to look at, smellís great, and is very flavorful, especially considering Iíve only had it from a bottle. Itís 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.

Bottle: Poured an dark amber color with a little head. The aroma was sweet malts. The flavor were dark fruits, sweet malts and a thicker than normal feel in the mouth, for an amber ale. Overall, this beer was flavorful and enjoyable to drink.

Pours a clear amber brown with thin white head. Aroma is earthy with notes of almond and caramel with notes of rye. Flavor is nutty with vanilla notes with an earthy hay. Body is light with medium carbonation.

Very good beer. After a day of tasting over 100 microbrews at a local beerfest, the Red Trolley was the only one I felt was worth the purchase. Easy to drink, easy to enjoy. Enjoy.

Draught from Disney California Adventure Park. A very deep bronzed copper colour with as all light tan head. Good flavour with plenty of caramel flavours with hints of butterscotch.

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.

A very nice red. Pours a dark amber color, with a small among of tan head. Smells great, lots of vanilla. Taste is similar, refreshing, not too hoppy, fruit and vanilla. One of the better reds I've had. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
