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.
