Poured this into a pint glass and the modest creamy beige head tops the flat amber body.
The aroma is woodsy, biscuity, and malty all around and balanced out just right. I'm not picking up any hop whiff at all with this.
The flavor is all about toasted grains, butter cookies and sweet malt, all topped with a mild hop kiss that just about screams comfortability.
The mouthfeel is medium to light. Smoooth.
Overall, a great brew. You could drink this all night long and not grow tired with it at all.

Red Brick Laughing Skull Amber Ale
12 oz. brown bottle, code date is illegible
$2 @ Whole Foods, Tampa, FL

Appearance: Very deep amber/caramel colored body. Hazy. The frothy off-white head holds quite well, and leaves walls of rolling craggy lace surrounding the glass.

Smell: Distinctly caramelish and toasty. Bready sweet. Some hops come through behind the malt.

Taste: Richly malty backed by a good smear of spicy, floral, and grassy hops. The malt is caramelish, toasty, bready, and slightly chocolatey. It's almost like a candy bar. Surprisingly, although it does falls towards the sweeter end of things, it's balanced by just enough hop bitterness and flavor that it never really becomes 'sweet'. Drying, lightly malty lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a dextrinous edge. Creamy and smooth with a moderate, fine-bubbled carbonation.

Overall: A surprisingly well-balanced amber ale in what is now a sea of over-hopped ambers from the U.S.. Very pleasant. Really enjoyable. Easily accessible to the uninitiated, yet satisfying for even the biggest beer geek.
