Solid Red Ale, simple, but pleasing beer-flavored beer for any microbrew enthusiast.

Very nice clarity and medium mohogany color.

Smell pretty predictable and typical for a moderately hoppy beer.

Taste is also simple and predictable, but pleasing.

I would be happy with this beer if I brewed it. It would please a wide range of beer lovers offending no one but delighting few. Solid, but nothing remarkable for the variety.

I poured the Laughing Skull into a tulip style glass. The initial pour left a couple fingers of foam. This dies down into a light scum with a decent halo. The lacing is very light with this beer. The coloring is spot-on. The description of "Amber" is very appropriate for coloring.

The nose on this one is decently malty. I pick up minimal grassy hop presence. The smell on this one does not really jump out at you.

Laughing Skull has some funk on the first sip. On the back-end you get some nuttiness from the malt and more of the grassiness. I also get some metallic feel on this one.
