Karl Strauss Brewing (San Diego, CA)
"Red Trolley Ale sets the standard for Irish Red Ales. Each batch of this multi award-winning beer is brewed with a half-ton of caramelized malts for a deep copper color and toffee flavor. After adding the perfect mix of hops for balance, the brew is warm-fermented to bring out hints of raisins and currants."
At $10 a 6, this brew is outta my normal price range so when I saw it was on sale at Sprout's I had to grab it. So glad I did. This red ale is one of the tastiest beers I've had in months.
In a way, I am sorry I tried it ... now I want more.
