Mostly clear burnt orange, fizzy short lived head of khaki fades quickly to thin ring, spotted lace.

In the flavor: oodles of grapefruit and lime, fresh grass, a bit of dank weed, some sweet honey and black pepper. Good hop profile; great for a pale ale.

The flavor is a bit sweeter than the nose. Pine, grapefruit, cereal graininess and honey in back before a dryish finish with moderate bitterness.

Medium light in body, it's a bit watery. Low, numbing carbonation with a bitterness that becomes more substantial as I go.

I wouldn't say this winter offering from Ska has flavors that really gel with the season, but it is a nice little pale. Not bad at all.

Poured from 12oz. can into a New Belgium globe glass. Beer was a dark orange color, with a thick, one-finger head. Heavy carbonation and thick lacing.

Aroma was hops, malt, caramel and fresh bread.

Taste was sweet malt up front, followed by a long, hoppy bitter finish.

Quite good and easy drinking. Well balanced. Would buy this one again.

A: Nice almost copper tint of orange. Head poured pretty thick at first, then faded into a nice thin, slightly orange froth. Laced the glass like crazy as I drank.

S: Citrus and pine in the hops, caramel from the malts.

T: Hops dominate beginning and middle, then fades into a sweet caramel flavor. This is seriously delicious.

M: Medium, slight creaminess, especially as it warms up a bit.

D: Very, very drinkable. Unlike most of the other winter ales in which I dabble in on a regular basis, this has a lower alc content, however there is not a lack of flavor in any way.

Notes: This is one of the best American Pale Ales I have ever had! I will look forward to this release every year. For those who are against cans, if you see this 6er, bite the bullet and get it.

Ska is impressing me more and more with each brew I sample.
