3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper with brown hues and a small white head. Nose is caramel, grassy, banana, peaches. The flavor is sweet at first but then comes a really nice bitter that would be expected from a beer of this style. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light and the finish is long.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From notes. Bottle poured into a shaker. This beer is just ok. Grapefruit and citrus in the aroma and taste, but pretty weak. There are a lot better versions of this style out there, and this is pretty bad coming from Ska.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This red ale has a nice amber color to is and a good scent of malts. It has a semi heavy malt taste and a slight taste of hops nicely mixed together. Overall it has a decent flavor that drinks smooth. Definetly worth a try.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. 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...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bronzy looking beer with a slight reddish tinge and a very strong off white head. The aroma is gently fruity and dry, and the flavour is roasted with some malty bitterness. Overall a reasonable fruity and malty bitter beer.
