APPEARANCE: This is one of the most crystal clear beers I have ever seen. Very pretty. The color is a very light orange and hundreds of bubbles are popping up from the bottom of the glass into a slightly off-white ceiling of head. The head is about a half-inch thick, but quickly loses half of its height.
SMELL: The aroma is quite pleasant with a strong dose of orange, maybe a little coriander and a little citrus.
TASTE: It's funny how the first sip of this instantly takes me to Durango. I first had this beer there a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is what a summer night in Durango tastes like to me, but enough gushing about Ska - the caramel malt comes through in a big way up front. Citrus and some dark fruit emerge towards the end of the sip before an ever so small hint of earthy hops finish it off.
MOUTHFEEL: The malt makes this a medium-bodied brew that starts out a little dry, but finishes a little sweet. Very solidly balanced in this respect.
OVERALL: This isn't the best beer in Colorado. It isn't the best beer that Ska makes either. It is, however, a wonderful session beer from a great brewery.
