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!

I noticed this clever bottle as I walked through Total and Wine and more in Kennesaw. The sign outside of the Vortex?? I must investigate!

Poured into a standard pint glass. Color is light red, mostly orange. Very clear. Not a lot of carbonation, but I got a decent amount of frothy head. It dissolved after a few minutes, leaving a thing slab of head on the surface. Good lacing.

Smell is bready with indistinct hops.

Taste is very good. Bready malts with some mild sweetness, dry bitter finish. Very nice.

This is a really excellent brew. Easy to throw back, but also great for slowly enjoying. I'm glad this will be available year round. This will make an excellent beer for grilling out!

Excellent tasting beer. Wish I could find more in my area (TN).
