This review is an 8.5%.

Pours a nice amber colored ale with a decent cream colored foam that quickly disappears. No lacing.

The aroma is sweet, sweet malt, caramel, dark plum, apple and some reminders of candy.

The taste is big sweet malt. Some dark fruits are also present, plum, pear and apple. There is a touch of a hop kiss on the drink as well.

Overall this was better than I expected. It was a wife "pick" and not bad at all. I thought the Red Trolley Ale meant amber and got a little concerned, but this definitely drinks like an imperial red. It is a bit sweet, but alas, that's the style. Worth picking up and sipping.

8.5% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, toast, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet caramel and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice caramel and fruit presence in the smell, but the taste is super malt forward in my opinion.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Nice deep red color, okay head.

Smell: Big caramel in the nose.

Taste: Sweet and malty, with hops punching in mid-taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body.

Drinkability: Smooth and balanced. Off The Rails is my go to beer for something with big malts and then some big hops.
