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.

Yeah okay. Head disappears in seconds, but does impress with quite delicious dark crystal malts; plums, raisins. Very malt driven, quite sweet. Hopheads will be unhappy. Strange tart yeasty finish though which sort of ruins the experience. By the of the six pack it tastes like VB. Strange but true.

Everyone says this is the best Karl Strauss has to offer. Its a decent beer. Good color, malty sweet with a lasting finish. Pretty thin, not remarkable. For a lighter beer, I think the Amber Lager is a much better alternative.

Had this while waiting for a plane at LAX - perhaps the airport tap was watered down ro something, but I kind of got the impression other rates did, but much more sedated/watered down. Served in a pint glass with a thin head and a amber copper color. Not too much aroma perhaps the hint of hops and malt. A nice smooth feel going down with a malty flavor but nothing really jumping out at me. Again perhaps it was the setting and the beer was served fairly cool.
