A - Bright, clear, amber brew. Good looking burnt copper color. Relatively no head. Gentle swirl produces a small cap that doesn't really leave any significant lacing.
S - Some light maltiness with piney hop aroma.
Seems like it will be pretty well-balanced.
T/M - Get a taste of light crystal/caramel malts before the resinous hops kick in. It does come across as a good balance. Light to medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation.
O - Easily drinkable. Don't think they were trying to re-invent the wheel, just put forth a good beer. I generally like what SKA puts out.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new offering to me from Ska Brewing Co., acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. No abv listed on the bottle anywhere.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a coppery bronze orange colored body with just over a finger of foamy khaki head. Leaves some nice spotty lacing behind. Looks pretty nice.
S - The nose is comprised of sweetened caramel malts, toffee, toasted grains, a bit of soapiness, mild alcohol phenols. A bit of an earthy / twiggy / fruity / berry / herbal tea like presence as well.
T - Taste follows the nose - caramel malt, toffee, herbal / twiggy / earthy tea leaf like flavors, and some mild hop bitterness. Lightly metallic on the finish.
M - The feel is crisp, clean, and malty. Mild fruitiness / bitterness lingering behind on the palate. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, a solid example of the style from Ska Brewing. This is easily one of the better beers I have had from these guys, and one that is a likely contender for repeat drinking.
