danjs5 (241) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2016 Deep amber pour with thin head. Slight sour, hoppy and caramel aroma. Light to medium body. A light crisp, fruity, nutty, toffee, malt balance of flavour. Quite pleasant. A reasonable red disguised as a clean finish mid ABV ale.

Bottle. Deep red brown pour, dissipating off-white head. Malty, watery, something almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not much on the nose, however. Medium (barely) body. It’s okay.

Pours a beautiful red tinged golden brown. Zero head. And I truly mean zero. The top is crystal clear. Zero aroma. I can't smell a single thing. Tastes okay, but very watered down. No unpleasant off notes. Just plain and boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Little in the way of aroma. A nice red color. Super malty flavor. Balanced and non descript.

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.

Amber color with almost no head. Caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is totally caramel. Tastes similar to the Alaskan Amber. Good, but to sweet for a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours rich amber with low level carbonation and a thin head. Hints of toffee and roasted crystal malt. Flavours of caramelized toffee and bready malts dominate proceedings here with some low level ester. Very easy drinking.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2004
I like hops in my nose. Red trolley is all that. Rusty red color with a very dry but mostly barley taste (?). Fair head retention and nice lace. Sampled on tap in San Diego.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Sampler on tap at downtown San Diego brewpub. Light caramel aroma. Roasty and caramel malt flavor, with hop bitterness at the finish. Nicely balanced.

3.7
Kurtos (200) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a Bronze-Red colour. Aroma’s of mainly caramel and sultana’s. Taste. Definitely can taste the Caramel as others have stated, but also notice Black liquorice flavours along with a slight currant flavour, almost no hop flavours but it does finish with a slight bitterness. Palate. This is quite thick and a little syrupy in the mouth. Overall. This is a beer that delivers a nice sweetness, yet isn’t too sweet and has no off flavours. This beer would be very good with sticky date pudding and other desserts.
