look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - light, bright amber-red with a big off-white head that has great retention; a good amount of particles floating around

S - big bready malt and a faint fruitiness

T - bread, citrus, grapefruit, faint caramel

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is an incredible malt bomb. The malt is huge, heavy and bready. There is a decent, citrusy hop character but there's was no way it could compete with the malt character. This could use a bit of balance for sure.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a hazy copper/amber pour with 2 fingers of off white head.
smells of sweet molasses, burnt caramel, cereal.
the taste is very sweet up front followed up by a fresh grassy hop taste. hints of honey, caramel, slightly bready. light-medium body, moderate carbonation, slight amount of creaminess.

overall not a bad beer.. very traditional tasting red ale.. not very complex but refreshing and quite tasty for the style.

Slightly hazy orange/amber with a fingers worth of creamy white head.

Smell is malty and sweet. Nuttiness and dark fruits..honey

Taste is malt forward with just enough hop balance. Toasty sweetness with mild fruitiness, little bitterness.

Delicious stuff.

O, Atlanta Brewing Company, now Red Brick, why do you and I have it so hard right now? You disappointed me this weekend, but, when I had your beer at Taco Mac, all was forgiven. The original Laughing Skull died right as I was starting to love beer; the last one I had had been sitting around and was oxidated and flat. However, as the new version came out, I decided it was my job as an Atlantan to give the beer a new taste. I was impressed. The malted sweetness in this beer is highlighted by the addition of roasted grain. This beer is possibly one of the most drinkable beers made in the city. The body is fairly medium and finishes with a good balance. If you can find this beer on tap, drink it. It turns over fast and really packs a refreshing punch.
