Back from the dead and better than ever! Like a zombie that just won’t die, one of the South’s favorite craft beers is back. This newly reincarnated version of Laughing Skull is a full flavored amber ale with a crisp, clean finish that’s sure to clear out the cobwebs. So crack open a Skull! You’ll be glad you did.

12oz bottle, I forget the date but a fresh sample.

Pours clear light amber with a two finger off white head that leaves nice cobwebs of lacing and holds a small cap.

Aroma is pretty typical for an Amber, a little fruity, a little caramel, a little nutty, some light floral and grassy hops. Good strength.

Flavor is caramel malt, light fruits, light citrus hops, somewhat sweet, moderate bitterness, little to no alcohol.

Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, a bit oily, medium carbonation.

A solid Amber Ale, but nothing spectacular.

eyes_wide_shut (107) - Haifa, ISRAEL - APR 29, 2011
At a tiny tasting in my home, bottle, in opening of the bottle exited smoke, pours cloudy bright orange with a very small head that dissipates quickly, nicely carbonated, fruity, hoppy and sweet aroma, dry, bitter, slightly smoked and twist aftertaste, medium noticeable body, and overall an excellent beer.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Light reddish tint with some amber hue. Slightly hazy with a thin bubbly head. Aroma has hints of hops and slight malt. Flavor is a bit hoppy with a malt backing. A pretty straight forward beer with no surprises.

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

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2011
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.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2011
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.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2011
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.

thirdeye11 (5860) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear yellow-orange with a film and ring of off-white bubbles. Nose of melon, honey and caramel. Taste of caramel, light toastiness, citrus bitterness. Medium thin body with soft carbonation and a bitter linger.
