Fruity, slightly hoppy, but in the end it is another benign red ale. Luckily i got a single bottle.

Bottle. Very clear amber, weak head. Earthy hop and gruyere aromas, hints of caramel and sheep dung. Nutty malt, appleskin, grass, and spice flavors. Watery palate. Cramel and peanut shell finish, muddy aftertaste. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from the CASK Brewclub Banquet. Lightly floral and lemony hop aroma. Mild amber ale flavor, with a bit of caramel, light hop flavor and a little bitterness at the end. Very little aftertaste. Mild throughout, but completely drinkable. Not bad, not memorable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This gets an automatic one point appearance deduction for any association with the term "Laughing Skull". The namesake Bohemian pilsener was one of the foulest, and most memorably so, beers I have ever had. Clear plastic label, clear light brown beer with a big fluffy head. Light, slightly candied APA aroma. A little floral, a little toasted, citrus pith, lightly sweet. Not bad. Medium light body, lingering toasted and hoppy aftertaste. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
What is this, soap flavored beer? Itís a sickly, cloudy amber with a greenish tint. Head has very large bubbles, like soap. Aroma is nothing, but flavor is all soap. Palate is incredibly thin. I feel like this beer is cleaning my class for me. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly sweet and toasty. Feels thin. The flavor is slightly watery with some sweet notes and a touch of bitter. Weaker than I hoped.
