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.
