Red Trolley Ale – Karl Strauss Brewing Company (USA)

Red Trolley, yellow trolley, tread lolly yerrow rorry………. easy for you to say.

Red Trolley is an American ale with an ‘Irish’ flavour. Brewed by the Karl Strauss Brewing Company, it’s departure from their feisty Pintail pale.

Strauss calls this a ‘seasonal ale’ and it certainly has a winter feel to it. It’s a deep reddish brown and only very lightly carbonated. There’s caramel and rich, Christmas cake flavours. I’d prefer it with a bit more fizz, or maybe in a pint glass in front of roaring fire.
