    June 2010 - On tap. Not all that bad. Deep amber color with smallish frothy head, some toasty aroma. Plenty flavorful with roast, cocoa and lactic notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Definitely passable.

    Tap handle stated name as "Red Brick Brown Ale": on tpa @ Barley's in Knoxville. Deep clear garnet brown with an ample head and nice lacing. Slightly nutty aroma with some bready notes, a bit of toasted malts, slight coffee and bittersweet chocolates and slight hops. Flavor is much in line with the aromas with a nutty smooth taste and very slight hops finish. Easy to drink brown.

    Overall, the Red Brick brews I tried weren't the most fascinating for my palate. Ok at best. Slightly watery body. Light amber, little head. Taste is soft, mildly fruity and aroma of bread. Also has slight cherry in it.

    Asked the waitress to pick a beer for me, while at Stone Mountain. She brought me this one. Not too bad is about the best I can say. Nice color with no head and just a tiney bit of lacing. Malty with a hop twist that does not bite. Its an okay beer.

    Aroma is fairly strong, malty and yeasty with a hint of molasses. It pours a clear cola brown with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale yellow-tan head that sticks around. Flavor is mainly malty and has a bit of a yeasty tang to it, hints of molasses and caramel. Texture is smooth and just a little on the watery side, but it is still fairly drinkable.

    This brown ale pours a dark brown color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, nutty, citrusy and roasty. A medium bodied brown ale. The malts are nutty, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Good balance. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    This is much better that my original rating 2 years ago. In fact, it’s so much better, that I deleted the original rating completely instead of doing my usual addendum to the original rating. I had originally given this beer a 2. The body is a clear copper with a small, short-lived white head. The aroma has a bit of toast and a follow up of caramel. The flavor is light, but not bland with a surprisingly blatant bitterness that melds into the carbonation to tingle the tongue. There’s a suggestion of tartness that starts to build but never quite activates the sour receptors on the tongue. Overall a pretty decent beer. It’s apparently got that hop that leaves me with creasote burps. I wish I knew what hop that was.

    Pours with an amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet bitter and slightly smokey with a slight hoppiness and a little fruit. Medium bodied, slightly dry and smooth.

    aroma as when your cookin it up. the flavor is, to say the least, burnt. Definite bitterness up front, reminds me much of scorched popcorn. In time the flavors do come through, lots of burnt butlike malts, becomes thicker. Not bad if you like the burnt thing. Decent beer, especially after the bashing i heard from shag about their products at ABC.

    As a US Navy military contractor, I fly a lot. And since I fly a lot to either Jacksonville, Charleston, Pascagoula, and Norfolk, that means I often fly through Atlanta Hartsfield Int'l Airport. That, in turn, means I get to taste this very interesting ale quite often during layovers -- not a bad deal, that!

    Although described as a Red Ale, I agree with this site's assessment that this is closer to a Brown Ale (with perhaps a few reddish highlights). That's a good thing in my book, since I am most definately *not* a fan of the red ale "style" (finding it too sweet and cloying, generally speaking). But a beer like this, on the other hand, is quite tasty.

    Nice pleasant maltiness to this -- almost reminds me of a Marzen, flavor-wise. Hopped decently, as well, with enough bitterness to actually take notice (a rarity in airport bars across the country). Probably could be a bit more complex..., but I can understand if they rather not put out an IPA or Dubbel for an airport bar!

    No idea how well distributed this is (my only exposure to Georgia has been Atlanta's airport), but this worth checking out if you get a chance.
