It's good quality, very smooth. Just wish it didn't taste so bland.

Poured a amber body with two finger head that dies quick with no lace and the aroma is slightly bready and caramel malt but mostly a artificial sweet (I guess this is the honey) edge. It goes down easy and smooth, I'll say that. Other than that there is really nothing here except minimal bitter hops, a mediocre malt presence that is somewhat breadlike and a bit of sweetness. Had one and that was enough...good enough for mainstream consumption.

Barrel Trolley Amber Ale pours a clear, light-amber, golden color with a large off-white head. Head has okay retention and leaves moderate/low lacing. Smells of musty grain and malt, with just a hint of fruit and hops.

Taste starts with stale bread, grain, and malt, moves on to a strange metallic-ness, with a fruity sweetish, slightly bitter, more rounded finish. Greatly hurt by the metallic note here, without that it would have an okay/good taste, but is kinda ruined by the cloying metallic bite. Mouthfeel is lighter than average with average carbonation for an Amber Ale.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and biscuit aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and apple cider flavors on the finish. There is a very 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 a pretty poor beer that has a fairly decent smell but the apple cider like flavor I am getting is weird.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

The last of the never-vaunted Barrel Trolley series, and something tells me Binny's is as thrilled to see it leave its store as I am to try it out. It pours a clear amber (how thoroughly appropriate) topped by a short finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flaky biscuit, very light flowers, and a kiss of butter. The taste brings in more of the same, but with a bit of orange zest, helping to bring some semblance of balance to the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying-ish finish. Overall, a mediocre amber. 'Nuff said, really.
