Ska Brewing ESB Special Ale

Ska Brewing ESB Special Ale

This beer is brewed at the Ska Brewery which is located in Durango CO. It has a 5.7% ABV and is available year around.

I found this brew to have a nice amber color to it when pouring it out in a glass. It had a thick head and laced the glass as well. The aroma was very sweet and malty that carried some piney hop tones yet I found it to be rather on the bland side. When tasting this beer I got a sweet caramel malt front that balanced decently with the sweet yet bitter piney hops that were found in the nose. It had a decent crisp mouthfeel to it but this beer left me wanting more.

Overall this is a decent beer in my opinion but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it again.
