Backlog of reviews from the last week in CO, KS and KY. This was reviewed fully to my phone at time of consumption in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.

A- Golden bodied ale is poured from the 12oz bottle with a clear appearance to a goblet. The white head rises to one finger with a foamy texture. Pretty good head retention as the cap dies to a puffy ring and some clouds.

S- Saaz hops come to mind first with the lager yeast being a close second. Spicy, herbal and floral Noble hop character with pale fruit esters and fresh bread beyond that. Slight malts.

T- Pale fruit notes from the lager yeast pick it up more here as well a definite cracked pale malt and cereal grain sweetness. Deep bready quality. Saaz remains the focus but not by a ton bringing spicy, grassy and herbal qualities.

MF- Light bodied overall with a crisp fizzy and lightly frothy texture. Carbonation comes in on the high side with a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Saaz and lager yeast atop a pale cereal grain malt base. Spicy, grassy and bready with a crisp refreshing feel.

Best by 11/2/14.

Pours a clear light golden-yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

12 fl oz. can, with best by date September 11, 2014 printed on the bottom of the can. A new canned offering to me from Ska Brewing Co.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours the typical clear golden yellow straw colored body. Some decent clarity when held to the light. A finger and a half of frothy white foam head. Some spotty strands of lacing. Looks good for what it is.

S - The smell is good for what it is, also - crisp, grainy, grassy, and wheaty. Light lemony pith noticeable.

T - Taste is the same - crisp, grainy, grassy and wheaty. A simple no frills beer experience, but the quality of the ingredients definitely shows when pitted against swill like Bud Light or Miller Genuine Draft.

M - The feel is fluid, crisp, and clean. Lightly grainy aftertaste.

Overall, it's a good drink for what it is, but it's not something I would seek out again. I'm glad I got a can of this as part of a mixed six pack instead of paying the full price. The quality of the ingredients is noticeable, but flavor-wise it's not much above a Miller Lite.
