SKA "Pinstripe"
Ska Brewing - Durango, Colorado USA
Red Ale (ABV 5.15) (IBU 42)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear copper orange with some light peach highlights and an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing to a medium film and large collar and having fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light bread malt, grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was a lot like the aroma with a light bitter malty flavor with just a hint of caramel early on, progressing with a mild hoppiness and a light citrus presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a light citrus peel bitterness left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, dry texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall I found this brew to be a mildly hoppy and slightly fruity Red Ale with a very good drinkability...
