imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear lightly hazy amber ruby with small off white head. Chalky malty floral aromas. Toffee, biscuit, sickly sweet malts, jelly, grapes, currants and floral aromas. Medium body, medium carbonation - a touch dry, but sickly sweet tofee and artificial sweetness through the finish with an ongoing floral hop character.

Pours a clear dark copper with a diminishing tan head. Caramel on the nose. Starts with a caramel taste but finishes with an odd yeasty flavour.

Nice drop. Had several times in the last two weeks, must say I like it less each time - not sure why. Perhaps the batch was on it’s last legs by the time it got to Australia. The foam on the first few were reasonable and held OK, but the one last night hardly formed and didn’t hold. Nice reddish brown colour - tastes of caramel and malt. Length of palate is medium, longer than a larger - shorter than other dark ales. Overall happy, but will look for another Irish Red Ale to become a regular other than this one.

Bij de clam chowder uit plastic glas of fles. Ruikt zoet. Rodige kleur, prima schuim. Prima smaak, lekker fris fruitig.

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 (2686) - 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 (3061) - 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 (62) - 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.
