Aluminum can into a Samuel Smith's conical pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are average; Ska tends to be underwhelming.

Served cold. Side-poured. Not paired with food.

A: Pours a three finger head of nice cream and thickness, and light white-khaki colour. Retention is good. Decent lacing. Body colour is a clear textbook copper with no visible yeast particles. No bubble show. Par for the style. I like the head.

Sm: Nectary and floral hops. Caramel. Pale malts. Sticky sweet malts. A hoppy appealing aroma of moderate strength.

T: Nectary and floral, with some evident hop bitterness. Caramel and pale malts form the unobtrusive foundation. It's incredibly simple, and the balance isn't quite good. I do like it, but there's little to say about it in light of its simplicity. Lacks subtlety.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Somewhat refreshing. Standard carbonation. Not as crisp as I'd like. A bit too thick. Generally good for the style, but it's far from custom-tailored to the flavour profile.

Dr: A drinkable IPA from Ska. I've had this from the can and it's much better from a glass. ABV is well hidden. I doubt I'd get this again; maybe fresh on draught. A passable IPA with high ratings that I don't understand. Another meh beer from Ska.
