On Tap: Ska True Blonde Ale

The latest showdown in the beer industry? The epic battle of Can v. Bottle.

Can enthusiasts were off to a slow start with a team composed entirely of hipsters and PBR tallboys. Luckily for the Can team, many craft breweries have recently joined their side, giving them a more advantageous (and acceptable) position. Bottle-lovers better step up their game, it looks like the Cans are about to take the lead.

This week’s MVP for the Cans is Ska True Blonde Ale. This American-style blonde ale is perfect for a sunny summer afternoon and is suitable for beer amateurs and professionals alike. Offering pleasant grain and honey aromas, in the mouth it feels smooth and creamy . Each sip is lined with a thin sweetness and contains a delightful balance of hops and malts as well as some fruity apple and honey flavors.
