Ska Brewing Co. - Pinstripe Red Ale; Euphoria Pale Ale

The Ska Brewing Company is in Durango, Colorado.

Pinstripe Red Ale - This beer pours a reddish-copper in color with a small head.  The aroma is slightly fruity, malty, a bit of caramel.  The taste follows the aroma, and also adds a bit of unsweetened tea as the beer finishes somewhat bitter and dry.


Euphoria Pale Ale - This beer pours a very dark copper and amber to medium brown.  There is a small off-white head.  The aroma is grassy, fresh herb, citrus, on a caramel malty base.  The taste is malty, tea with lemon, plums, biscuit, with a quite bitter and dry finish.

Ten Pin Porter! - This beer pours black with a very minimal light brown head that dissipates almost immediately.  The aroma is deep, dark roasted malt, some coffee, a touch of dark chocolate with a hint of raspberry.  The taste is cold coffee, dark chocolate with light raspberry.  The finish is quite dry, somewhat bitter.  The mouthfeel is light considering the big flavors.
