COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

on draft the medium brown color poured with large frothy head and it lingers for a bit. the aroma of nuts, malts caramels dominated the glass. something like i would make but the flavor was a little twisted. not matching the aroma. you could taste the malts and caramels and a little nut flavor. just didnt seem to match but it was decent enough.

Deep brown with a thick cream head. Nose is malts, sweet, nutty, and caramel. Decent on the palate, flavors or caramel, light malt, dough, and a nut finish.

unclemike (2269) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a brown color with a huge tan head and almost a gushing bottle. Aroma of toffee and other lighter malts. Astringent malty flavor includes some chocolate and possibly some sweet hazelnut or vanilla. Light palate and very overcarbonated. Maybe I had a bad bottle, but I was rather disappointed.

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle at the sugar land saucer. Really unimpressive. Clear brown with a fast fading beige head. Mild aroma of toast, sweet malt and faint nuts. Taste is malty, soapy, watery and slightly metallic. Medium-thin bodied, a little creamy and watery. Glad I didn’t get a six pack.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle as shown at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a medium frothy off white head that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is Light roasted malt and nuts. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt with caramel and raisin. Easy to drink, a good brown ale frkm SKA.

Cavie (3801) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle from Central Market. This beer pours a clear brown color which is a dark brown with touches of red. The head is tan and foamy. 

Aroma is caramel sweetness with a nutty nose. Slight roast and bitter. A decent nose. 

Flavor is a dry nutty taste with a roasty finish. A bit too dry I would say.

RobertDale (3550) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes brown with an average biege head. Aroma of caramel, malt and toffee. Taste is sweet malt, caramel and just a bit of hops. Not too exciting.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of nut and dirty chocolate. Flavor is not so good in my opinion, several off flavors such as vegitable, bandaid, some nut, medicinal and a certain alcohol spice that just shouldn’t be there. Medium body and kinda watery with high carbonation....overall, taste like a poorly made homebrew. Extremely disappointed!

degbert (1148) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours red-brown with good clarity, but the head disappears faster than a politician’s sense of honor. Nose is dry and savory with tea and nut notes. Drinks dark for a nut brown, and there is an unpleasant stale coffee/burnt sugar element. One-dimensional. Ska continues to underwhelm me.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. The beer pours a brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel with a little bit of nuttyness mixed in. Straight forward but enjoyable. The flavor is more of the same. There is a little bit of brown sugar to go along with the hazelnut, toffee and caramel notes. There is a little bit of grass from the hops but it is hidden well behind the malt. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
