Red, malty, dark caramel flavor without being obnoxious. Sweetness under control. I thought the aroma was similar. Slightly nutty, mild bitterness. rejtable (2624) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014

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. Illywhacker (12) - - JUN 23, 2015
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.
