Pinstripe Red Ale

Ska Brewing

USA

Here's how boring this beer is: I had this three years ago in Colorado, and it was so forgettable it slipped my mind to review it then. Recently, my sister brought me a sampler 12-pack from Ska after a vacation to that particular part of the world. I went ahead and chilled the Pinstripe, thinking, "Hey, maybe time's been good to this beer." Wrong. Oh, it's a handsome amber in the glass, and it has a pleasant enough malty nose, but the flavor is hopelessly bland and boring. The grinning skull on the label, rather than making you think "cool" should make you think "not to be taken internally."
