Texas

3.63/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A solid ruddy amber color that is still relatively transparent. A foamy one-finger head with good retention; nice light lacing during drinking. Balanced aroma for the style, not too malty and not too hoppy, and overall not particularly complex. Obvious toasted malt taste with some sweetness, leading to good bitter finish from the hops with a somewhat lingering aftertaste. Not very imposing, with medium carbonation and smooth texture.

FourthBeer potential: AVERAGE. Overall this isn't a bad beer, but I can't see myself drinking too many of them due to the lack of complexity in the taste.

Serving type: on-tap

3.75/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
