5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Amber in color, fairly clear, slight caramel hue, moderate to small frothy white head, dies
quickly, strong lacing.   Whoa, big time grainy/earthy aroma.   Thankfully not a strong on the tongue, but
still grainy with a pale earthy aspect.   Slight cardboard.   As it warms the aroma picks up more cardboard
and butterscotch.   Slightly astringent, with a hint of metal.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Lingering graininess.   Better than the Pale, but not by much.   Wait a bit longer and overcooked vegetable
comes out.   Meh... killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Pint(s) @ Pillager’s. Decent red ale. Nothing special, which unfortunately seems to be the norm from Three Skulls. Looks pretty (dark ruby red) but that’s about it. Some hops (but not too much). A little bland. odinstyr (794) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011

heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter,
medium body, slick feel, creamy, average carbonation, long cloying finish, Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 8, 2010
THOUGHTS: A little sickeningly sweet, but not too bad because there was just enough bitterness to keep it from remaining too cloying. Very malty, but somehow not great. Decent though.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very clear copper that looked like a new penny in the light and an old penny in shadow. It had an average to large, off-white head that left mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was heavy dark bread, cookies, toasted and nutty malt and caramel; apple, brown sugar and maple syrup. The initial flavor was rather sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was very sweet and light to moderately bitter. There was caramel, simple syrup artificial sweetener, nutty malt, dark bread, toasted malt, and then some grassy and metallic hops. The medium body was syrupy and then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and very dry finish. dmac (6198) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2010
22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Poured a lifeless deep red/amber body underneath an average sized foamy off white head. Aroma of vegtables, cardboard, toffee, caramel. Palate is solid with a medium mouthfeel, almost chewy, softer carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Flavor is better then the vegtable soup aroma with sweeter caramel/toffee and cardboard dominating. Gimicky beer with the art work doing the majority of the sales but it’s drinkable as long as you don’t spend to much time smeling it.

Beautiful red beer with a slight head. Easy grainy flavor and decent mouthfeel. Restrained hops, but along with some tannic grainy notes, provides a good crisp drinking experience.

Nice red ale with lots of hops and a good mix of malts. Lively beer this was with spice and a light bitterness in the finish.
