look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: This beer pours a hazy golden color with a decent head. Nothing to write home about.

Smell: A solid malt backbone that will come through on the taste. Seems to be a little smokiness that is interesting.

Taste: Like any Short’s beer, the bitterness is front and center. Even the heavy malt backing cannot fight off the hops.

Mouthfeel: Solid beer but the head retention was a little light..

Overall: A good but different example of an American Pale Ale. Glad I bought a six pack.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Still no date on Shorts bottles.. Picked this one up at a local Meijer as a single that they now carry.

A - Pours out a hazy light golden color with a white frothy two finger head that wants to stick around. Not a lot of lacing and looks to be bottle conditioned.

s - Has a nice strong bready malt character, nutty, sweet, tobacco, woodsy.

T - Bitterness followed by bready and nutty characters, tobacco, wood, sweetness. Bitterness lingers and builds the more you drink. Quite enjoyable.

M - Meadium bodied and pillowy soft in the mouth, dry finish and carbonated well with a slickness to it.

O - Not really what I excpected but it is surprisingly enjoyable with a bready, nutty and earthy tones to it. Definitely unique to the style and one you should try if your up for a new flavor in an pale ale. Good job Short's, keep it up and cheers!
