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.

12 oz bottle that pours a hazy orange with an enormous foamy off white head (so much head that I had to let the glass sit for a bit to pour the rest of the bottle into the glass) that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of lemon, apricot, honey and caramel malt. Taste is apricot, honey and caramel malts. Very carbonated - medium body. Okay brew but nothing outstanding for sure.

Draft. Poured light amber with a smallish white head. Aroma and flavor were mild, some bready malt, some citrusy, grassy hops. LIttle bit o’ honey, perhaps. Nice and drinkable.

Bottle. Drank from bottle, well about a third of it. Was hoping for a fairly fresh hoppy amber but this turned out to be fairly grainy and watery. Oh well.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle to a nice creamy and lasting head, with a cloudy amber color. The aroma was malty with a sour hint. Ok hop taste, with a very watery finish. It doesn’t suck.

bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy dark amber, good cream head cover, strips of lace. Taste is heavy malt and dark fruit spread on toast, finishing with a modicum of hops. Swallow sits hard in the stomach, leaving a chalky residue on the tongue. I expected better.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium sized off-white head. No overwhelming aromas or flavors. Has a nominally hoppy, mostly malty earthy taste. Medium bodied. Quaffable.

Draft @ OTH Strangely enough this one reminded me a lot of RB Peachstreet beer. Light amber color, white head. Aroma and flavor, fruit and hop citrus presence, leaning on a peach side. Mild notes of malt giving the beer a thin caramel and roasted malts in the profile. Just never imagined this one to be an amber.

The aroma is corn like and slightly toasted with butter, hay, and leaves. The appearance is light amber with a sudsy, medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a clean, yet slightly soapy, finish. The palate is average for the style. Overall it’s not a bad beer but it’s not really what I expect from an amber.

Draft at the Vortex, Atlanta. Cloudy brown red pour. Not alot of smell but there is smoke here. Taste is bland, not much to commend.

Cool bottle.. Below average beer. A bit too carbonated with no balance or resounding character.
