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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Des petites céréales délicates qui évoquent les raisins secs et autres fruits sèche et une touche de caramel. Les houblons sont déposés avec parcimonie sur le lit malté.
