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! (851 characters)

The color is a very cloudy but bright unpolished gold. Bubbles cling to the walls of the glass and rise from the bottom for most of the duration, breaking the surface when the initial cap of almost one finger fades off. Rocky lacing clings pretty strongly, dense but perhaps moderately plentiful, despite the short life of the head itself, which still keeps up some foam on the top.
The first whiff is just bread, but lots of citrus comes in. Grapefruit, lemon, orange and strawberry all make the rounds for something both zesty and sweet, a little rind pith contributing as well. hops are light on the nose, mostly grassy.
The taste brings more hops right up front, pith and pine along with floral and young, stemmy wood. Citrus still comes through, though not as bright or sweet as they are in the aroma. Biscuit and bread make the malt backbone.
It's crisp, and the body reaches a solid medium. It goes smooth, a little rough in the middle, then smooths out even as the finish dries almost completely. (1,004 characters)

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale and transparent orange, 1/2 finger white head, decent lacing and a little active carbonation rising up.

Smell - Mellow citrus, subtle pine and even some roasted notes, not getting lots of alcohol.

Taste - Similiar to the nose with more malt character. Subtle citrusy zest with orange, clementine, tangerine, grapefruit, and even floral notes of pine but all seem to be blanketed by malt character that gives off more of a subtle roast.

Mouthfeel - Light/medium bodied, light/medium carbonation, refreshing and smooth.

Overall - Good beer and glad I tried it. (600 characters)

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

It pours It pours orange with golden highlights. It is topped with a couple inches of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.

I get light citrus notes with a caramel malt presence. There is also some pine.

It starts out with some citrus with a pine finish. The pine continues to build as I drink.

Medium mouthfeel

This is a lot better than I expected. It is a flavorful, piny beer. (440 characters)
