Year Round

Red Trolley Ale is a medium-bodied beer with heavyweight malts. We brew it with a half ton of caramelized malts for a rich copper color and toffee flavor. After adding the perfect mix of hops for balance, we warm ferment the beer to bring out a hint of dried raisins and currants. The complexity of flavors makes Red Trolley Ale a hearty and truly enjoyable beer. 

Back in the day, we brewed Red Trolley Ale as our first holiday beer. In the spirit of the season, we made like Santa in a fat suit and stuffed it full of caramel malts. So many folks got on board that we decided to brew it year round. Years later, Red Trolley Ale remains the perfect beer to make any occasion festive.

Look
Nice red with a slight haziness and a small ruby head.
Smell
I smell tons of malt action going on.
Taste
Sweet, but not overly sweet. Has little to no hop bitterness.
Feel
The beer warms and complements a meal very nicely. The medium body gives great flavor without being too overpowering.
Drinkability
A very drinkable beer!

Look
Could be a little darker on the SRM... more amber in color than red
Smell
Nice sweet mild malt notes with minimal hop
Taste
Very clean finish with a nice balanced malty flavor. minimal hops noted as any good Irish Red. Could be a bit bolder...
Feel
Mouth feel is somewhat creamy and very smooth
Drinkability
Overall a very drinkable Red.... I'll be honest.... Karl should drop the trolly and just brew Off the Rails for us red head lovers ; )
