On tap at the Atlanta Brewing Company

Pours a translucent yellow amber color with 2 fingers of creamy off white head. good thick lacing left on the glass.

Smells of citrus and slight pine hops with hints of vanilla, very subtle earthy tones mixed in as well.

Mild pale malt detected in the taste that is quickly taken over by a good amount citrus hop flavors. This beer finishes clean with a smooth taste of vanilla. Excellent flavors that are blended well with the creamy carbonation.

Mouthfeel is creamy yet not to heavy. Good carbonation mixes the hints of vanilla well with the hop notes.

Drinkability is good. I had three of these at the brewery before heading out. I could have stayed all day and kept drinking this one.

I loved this beer. To be fair I am a big fan of Peachtree Pale Ale and this version was excellent. If only they sold this in bottles so I could have brought some back with me to Mass.

On-tap at the brewery and named Ollie Oakenforth - inspired by Athens's own Owen Ogletree. This is the Red Brick Pale Ale put through an oak barrel, I was told it was the fourth run.

Pours an almost opaque copper color with a half-finger off-white head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of vanilla and oak backed by grainy pale malts and very light earthy hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Pale malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by vanilla and smooth oak. Midway through the sip hints of citrus and leafy hop flavors enter into things, carrying through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this was much smoother than the cask I've had previously. Well worth a shot if you see it around.
