Very small white head on top of orange crystal brew. No lacing.

Amazing amount of peppercorn, sage, spice, celery, tomato, very clean aroma.

Smooth, light, relaxed, no heat, very little bite with wonderful transitions throughout the many flavors. Nailed the flavor, dead on, exactly what I expected and wanted. Tastes just like a a bloody beer (minus some of the spice). Fizzy carbonation slightly detracts, but I can get over it. Zero bitterness, and dry sweetness.

This brew is amazing. I could drink this every day for the rest of my life... If you like Bloody Mary's or Bloody Beers, than this should be considered a MUST TRY!!! A (near) perfect beer from Shorts, Thank you abanton!!!

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/19/2012. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 1 finger foamy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace. Slight spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of tomato, tomato skins, black peppercorn, celery seed, celery stalks, dill, horseradish, and herbal earthiness. Nice and extremely interesting aromas with good strength and balance; all of the spices mentioned on the bottle definitely show up. Taste of roma tomato, black peppercorn, dill, horseradish, celery, celery seed, herbal, grass, light hot sauce, and earthy spiciness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of roma tomatoes, black peppercorn, dill, horseradish, celery seed, grass, herbal, slight hot sauce, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice and interesting flavors that are robust and well balanced; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium cabonation and medium bodied; with a fairly slick and creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very solid experimental spiced beer. Very unique and interesting; nicely balanced and smooth. I have never had a Bloody Mary before, so I cant comment on that note; but I would still say that they did a good job of what they were after. Fairly enjoyable stuff for me.
