Today we sample a beer from SKA Brewing, Euphoria Pale Ale.
Appearance/Color- At two fingers, a little headier than I thought it would be. The color was a solid gold-amber and the beer settled down rather quickly with no additional carbonation.
Nose- The nose caught me by surprise, with more hoppyness than expects. It reminded me of a solid IPA vs just a Pale Ale. The flowery hops and pine undertones were refreshing and I wish I could get this for an air freshener scent.
Taste- Again, this reminded me more of an IPA with the front end hops and pine. With a citric aftertaste, I found the blends to very harmonious (first time I have ever used that word on the blog). Malt was slight to non-existent for me, but that is ok….I like my hops. Considering that it is shipped canned, there was no aluminum taste whatsoever.
Overall, I was pleasantly pleased with this product…..especially since I had low expectations due to it being in a can. I could easily see this becoming a staple “Light Hops” beer for me and would not be ashamed to pour it for any of my friends.
