COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a dark amber with a very good and complex taste. Not to mention the bottle looks pretty sweet. One of my favorite amber beers I have ever had.

Cybercat (3376) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick, yellowish, light tan head that sticks around - very appealing for any beer, and superior to nearly all amber ales. Aroma is crisp and malty with fruity and hoppy underpinnings. Pleasing flavor is mainly malty and has hints of fruit - mainly apple - and hops, with just a touch of bitterness. Texture is quite fizzy and lively. This is one of the best amber ales I’ve ever had. I have downed this before, but didn’t realize how good it is - maybe because previously I’ve had it only from a bottle.

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.

Laughing Skull has a medium, fluffy, off-white head, nice lacing rings, and a hazy, amber appearance, with lots of white and gray chunks floating throughout. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, and the taste is of the same, with an initially strong hop bitterness, which subsides. Sugar and a touch of citrus can be picked up as well. Mouthfeel is light and watery (lager-like, really), and Laughing Skull finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is an excellent beer. Check it out, y’all! RJT

12oz bottle. Available on tap at any TacoMac. Copper color. Aroma of caramel malts, earthy hop nose. Well balanced flavor. Tastes of caramel malts, some bread. Finishes with a hint of pine, hops. Tastes like a rusty American Pale Ale. Its good! (3607)
