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!

On tap-Manitou Springs Co.-Poured a ruby red/brown color w/a moderate foamy head. Nutty, malty, roasted aroma. Pleasent sweet flavor w/strong malt presence. Full flavor, long finish. Very refreshing.

This beer is served all over the Colorado Sprinsg area where I live and I find it very dissapointing, I like other Bristol beers much better. Taste falls flat for me.

This was a really enjoyable beer. A really true on true take of what I consider a Scottish ale to be. Strong amount of maltiness with a bit of spice and caramel malt delicately balanced by the slightest bit of smokiness and some peaty funkiness, almost a medicincal smell throughout.

Lab is a good, drinkable amber ale. Probably my favorite beer from Bristol. It’s a staple local brew on tap in almost any Colorado Springs bar. I would recommend it to anyone. Won’t knock you off your seat, but won’t disappoint either.

12 oz. bottle from Weidert. Drank on 5/20/06. Clear deep dark amber. 1+ cm. light tan head. Creamy, but drops fairly quickly. Nice layer of foam and good lacing. Aroma - some smokey, roasty, peaty malts. Smells great. Flavor - fair amt. of bitterness up front. Smooth and really well balanced in the mouth. Some nice smokey, peaty malty flavors after the swallow. Nothing really strong though, which is great. A little sweet. Palate - light to medium. Smooth and a little bit creamy on the tongue., but the carb. balances that well. Overall - Really good. This is everything my 80/- wants to be. Really well balanced and really drinkable with some nice malty character and good amt. of bitterness to balance it out. Really good session and year round beer.

Nice orange smokey brown colours come form the bottle. Nose is Alcohol and honey, green cuts and bananas. Flavour is orange wheat with a yeasty rye character. Mouth is slightly foamy and thin. Fairly sweet. No smoke notes at all.

12 oz. bottle into tulip glass. Purchased at some grocery store in Brookfield, WI sometime in 2004. Smells like resiny hops: somewhat acidic, like Pine Sol Lite, musty pine needles. Red amber in the glass with a slight trace of off-white head. Full bodied for a scottish ale; cherry and butterscotch flavors with a tinge of hoppy acridity; coats the mouth, slightly syrupy but not sickly sweet or thick; a bit of bitter hops are all I get on an understated finish. Not bad; but not great either.

Thanks to Zuchinnicat for the bottle. Amber-brown body with a significant suspended particle load and a smooth beige head. Aroma of scorched malt, roasted marshmallows, molasses, and baked squash. Flavor of sweet malt, plums, roasted barley, burnt grain husks, cooked fruit, and some smoke and plastic phenols. Medium-thin body that dies in the finish. Bristol continues to disappoint me.

Light copper, filtered and clear colored, topped by a timid off-white head that slowly becomes a memory. Despite the intense filtration, surprising banana notes make their way through the otherwise rather typical nutty, fruity (dried raisins, wood berries) nose in which malt aptly dominates. It never develops too far in its sweetness, betting on a nutty and cerealic combo backed by the necessary fruits and smoke hints for balance. In terms of palate, it is well constructed, light-medium body with mostly engaging carbonation that lasts. Hops are almost neglectable, barely providing a light herbal kick toward the finish, while a graininess grows from sip to sip. Forgettable, but clean.
