Bottle into dimpled mug.

Reddish brown body. Small head faded quickly to a thin bubbly film providing only 30% coverage. No lacing.

Smells of big caramel malt. Little roast... Very rubbery/synthetic hazlenut flavor. Do I detect a hint of bandaid? The beer is overly sweet. Again no hops. This brewery is not a fan of using hops in their recipes.

The body is ok. Kinda light, but a little syrupy... At least is isn't crazy overcarbonated like the other beers I've had from these guys.

Overall-- meh. Again.
This is yet another beer that makes me feel as though I've been duped. I really feel as though this brewery is a front for BMC as an attempt to lure "craft drinkers" back.
Don't fall for it.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

"Now you're on the trolley...the Barrel Trolley!" Taglines write themselves... This stuff pours a clear sunset topaz-amber topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises hazelnut, light booze, caramel, and some strangely menthol-y hops. The taste brings in more of the same, with the hazelnut coming through as artificial and some nice rubbery plastic entering the scene as well. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a kinda limp brown ale, one that's not necessarily offensive, but one I don't see myself ever drinking again on purpose.

Poured from a bottle into snifter.

A: Dark reddish brown with a one finger white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Good lacing.

S: Sweet malts. Molasses on the back end. Malty with no hop nose.

T: Not a whole lot of flavor. Malty and smooth. Lingering sweetness.

M: Moderate to high carbonation for the style. Thin mouthfeel.

O: This beer left me saying "eh." It was left in my fridge after an oyster roast. Not something I will seek out. Finishes too sweet for my liking. IMHO it would be a great beer for those who haven't yet ventured into the realm of craft beer; a gateway beer if you will.
