Picked up a bottle of Barrel Trolley's Pale Ale off the singles shelf at the nearby Binnys. The beer pours a pale yellow with thin white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent is bolstered by subtle fresh hops. The taste is a nice balance between the malts and hops. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall it's decent...reminds more of a blonde ale than pale ale. Would be fine as a session ale.

A: Dull dark gold. Greyish head. Good lacing.
S: Vinous, green grapes, strong Liebfraumilch and ginger.
T: Immediately I get prickly ginger plus Liebfraumilch but it dies after a second and you're left with a very flat tasting pale ale with an element of cardboard.
O: Weird. Most insipid.

Standard 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Shows a lightly hazed deep golden with perhaps a hint of copper. Light cap of white foam shows typical and average retention.

Aroma is muddled with some caramel and old hops. Indistinct from all fronts and warming doesn't help a lot if at all. Reminds me of the house beers at BevMo and might well be the same. Likely has some stressed yeast issues/underpitching.

Taste follows with a smooth and lightly carbonated delivery, touch of caramel malt and a very light hop delivery. Touch too malty yet without a balancing hop characer. Obvious house beer quality and previously seen at Ralph's/Kroger if I recall correctly. Brightens a bit on the feel with some spritzy, at times, carbonation. Lackluster finish. Boring and a bit harsh overall.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and citrusy perfume-like aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but the smell is a bit too artificial in my opinion.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Wow, judging by the sales-floor visibility and the talk, I'd say the Binny's foray into a "house label" (one that was already available in other chains in other states...) hasn't been much of a success. Oh well... This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises dry biscuit, old greens, and brown grass that's finally free to drink in the sunlight after suffering for months beneath a few inches of snow, but is too weak to do so right away. The hop presence is minimal at best and meek when it's there. The taste brings in more of the same, though that biscuit is now thoroughly buttered, and the greens are a touch brighter, having not spent as much time untouched in the fridge. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly watery feel. Overall, a sad little pale ale, proof positive of why this brand seems to have died a quiet, unmourned death around here.
