2.45/5 rDev -27.5%
Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint. No visible bottling date.
Look- Light Amber, almost a blonde. Hazy. Two fingers of dense foam that falls over a few minutes, nice lacing.
Smell- Strong toasted bread with an almost acrid feel. Weird, not really sure how to describe it.... burnt olive oil?
Taste- Similar to the nose, almost-ashy biscuit. Moderately bitter, vaguely tangerinelike. Lingering grassy flavor. Not much going on.
Mouthfeel- Moderate carbonation, medium-light body. Drinks and feels like mineral water.
Overall- Not terrible, but I'm glad I only got the one. Too much bittering without substance and not much flavor to be found anywhere.

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!

Served in an imperial pint glass at the Vortex Bar and Grill in Atlanta, which stated in was their "house beer".
appears a dark copper amber color, with little head. mild aroma, with a taste that's a bit of sweet malt that is balanced by just enough hops. easy drinking, and smooth. medium body and carbonation level.

A-Pours russet. Head is medium in stature. It dies off to a tan shadow. Body is murky. Hard to tell how murky in such lighting.
S-Pleasant balance. Hops are woven into the malts. Hops are a mixture of spicy and citrusy. Malts are rich and they complement the unique hoppiness.
T-The spicy and citrusy hops really take the cake. The maltiness reminds more of caramel glazed sweet buns. This is a pretty tasty brew. I really enjoyed the spiced citrus hops. They even turn a bit herbal in the finish. Yum.
M-Has a casky feel to it. Light bubbles. Creamy and moderately dry. Bitterness lingers on the tongue for quite a while.
O/D-Maybe the best of the weekend for me. Just a nice little Amber/Red that boasts its own individual flavor profile. Pretty good! One of the only beers I had on-tap that I would have happily had a second glass.

Pours a hazy amber with a near white head but thin head that has decent side glass lacing but not much head retention.
Some mlild roasty biscuity malts and a tinge of citrus hops. Combines some bready maltiness with some citrus hops . All and all a fairly decent balance for for this ale. Has a dry and slightly bitter bite that stays through the finish for an all around pleasant brew.
Purchased at Nicko's.

When I poured this beer out, it has a nice copper color body with a nice thcik white head that hung around for a while till it layed down to a thin lace. The smell of carmel notes, with some sweetness to it. The taste has a strong malt presense here. It is well balanced with the hops. The mouth feel is ok no after taste. this is your average amber/red ale, but it is worth tasting.
