Poured from a can into a NB globe.
Look: amber brown with a nice tan head. Nice lacing on the drink down.
Smell: mild malt aroma.
Taste: really quite nice malty taste with a hint of bitter.
Feel: medium mouthfeel but really quite good for this style as so many other ambers just seem too light for me.
Overall: I"ll be looking for this one again as it is getting hard to find an amber as good as this one.

Heavier nutty taste than expected out of an ale. Laughing Skull is a full bodied amber ale. This beer pours a brilliant amber color, with an off-white head. Willamette hops provides an earthy and mild bitterness, which balances the bready, malt character.

Poured from an undated bottle: almost ruby red and slightly hazy with a sustained off-white, foamy head that receded slowly leaving some nice lacing.

Faintly fruity aroma with some sweet malt accents.

The flavor profile was much better than I expected given the reviews. Roast flavor with hints of caramel with a refreshing fruity aftertaste. There is a nice hop presence that keeps the ale interesting and nuanced.

Not the best amber I have experienced but worth seeking out.
