Ska Euphoria

You ever have a beer that you forget about because it keeps getting pushed to the back by other American craft beers; not on purpose but, at least in this case, because it is smaller (12 ounce can) than the bombers (22 ounce bottle) or 750s (750ml bottle)?

I have no idea how long Euphoria by Ska Brewing Company has been sitting in the cellar. My initial guess is a good two years. Heck, I went to Ska’s site to get information on the beer and it isn’t listed. I know it was a winter seasonal but they even brew the beer anymore? It wasn’t listed with the other canned beers.

To be honest, I didn’t expect much from Euphoria because I knew it had been long forgotten and American pale ales don’t take kindly to aging. What I experienced was way less. Two sips of this beer: the original sip and a second to make sure it didn’t misinterpret the first, and it was a drain pour. This was horrible.

I have no idea if they still make this beer but I do know this: drink it fresh. Far from a euphoric experience. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: Norfolk County, Massachusetts, is the birthplace of three United States presidents: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and John F. Kennedy.
