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.

burg326 (5247) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12 ounce bottle that pours a light orange/amber color with aromas of resin, caramel, and earthy aromas. Flavor follows suit, an ok sipper for the Florida heat.

bhensonb (13726) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours light amber with an off-white head. Light caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Near med body. Flavor is caramel with a very light touch of citrusy hop. Finish is sort of bready.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours a too light amber. A very grainy malty nose. Not very complex. Same with the flavor though it is a little better. Pretty crisp, which is nice, but not at all exciting.

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Draft. Pours a clear amber color with a beige head that lingers nicely. Not too impressed with the aroma or flavor on this one as both seemed to be quite subdued. It did have a crisp, clean finish making it easy to drink but not very exciting.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Draft sample at the 2nd Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Amber in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Subdue aroma of toasted malt. The flavor was also subdued with toasted malt and a slight earthiness. Medium body, sweet, slightly chalky. Subdue overall and not that exciting.

pintocb (651) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Between golden and amber in color. Some presence of hops in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Balanced. Not bad.

drowland (7798) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2010
7/25/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. Malty caramel aroma with a hint of medicinal astringency. Very plain malty aroma with a hint of caramel. Meh.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2010
On tap in a shaker at a restaurant in Atlanta, this has a nice orangish/brownish color with crisp malts and a slightly bitter finish. It is what it is, a decent amber that isn’t going to wow you, but it’s nice for Atlanta restaurants to serve something besides macros and Sweetwater.

msgdob86 (4) - Florence, South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2010 does not count
Nice head, good amber color. Slight fruitness, no particular "wow" factor as many reviewers have commented on here. Decent lacing, not super prevalent. Smooth on the palate, overall decent brew.
