COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Laughing Lab has a nourishing maltiness that comes from six specialty malts. Its nutty, roasted flavor is mildly sweet, but not too rich. Smooth and luscious!

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Heavy malt body that doesn’t meet expectations. Can taste the roasted malts. Deep red color has no head or aroma to speak of. It’s simply boring.

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a clear amber golden with a white ring around the top edge. Some light caramel and sorghum on the nose (literally on my nose--stuck it in the glass a little too far). Smooth, full texture. The caramel and sorghum noted in the aroma comes through in the flavor with a dimensional quality. A bit of horehound candy there toward the finish.

UncleKorm (887) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at brewery, poured a lightly hazed deep copper hue w/ a medium quickly diminishing beige head and broken lacing. Medium malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are sweet tea, lemon, rye and grass. Medium bodied, watery mouthfeel and a light doughy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good common drinking beer not to impressive or stylish but very good. Earthy aromas.

Mep3222 (574) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Carmel like malt flavor and aroma. Slight sweet finish. A bit watery on the palate and slightly flat. Descent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Machinari_Diem (58) - - FEB 24, 2014
Pours deep red/gold with a thick head that laces down the glass. Malty English ale aromas Flavor is malty sweetness with unexpected biscuit caramel nutty malts and earthy english(?) hops Comes across much more dry and complex than other Scottish ales with more hop flavor and bitterness than the style dictates. This is more of a robust red ale than a Scottish.

ajnepple (2537) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2013
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks glass. Brown and lightly hazy with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma of toasted malts, caramel, toffee, nuts, bread and light hops. Medium sweetness and very light bitterness. Light to medium body with a soft, creamy feel and a smooth, lingering finish.

Bottle @ FreshCraft, Denver CO. Pours a clear amber beer with a small, off white ring of head on top. Aroma is heavy malty, caramel and nutty. Flavor is moderately sweet, malty and sugary. Body is fairly thin with a short, light sweet finish.
