look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - pours a orange / amber with a finger of off white head. Nice spotty lace after each drink.

S - malts, cookies, vanilla, faint fruity lime.

T - Malt forward, graham crackers, cake batter, lime comes through in the back end. Flavors don't come together.

O - Shorts never disappoints for creativity, but this one falls short of the mark. Drinks more like a malt bomb than a fruity brew. I wish it had more lime and less malts.

3.41/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Burnt amber with red hues. No head or lacing on this beer.

Smell - very sweet up front, perhaps from the marshmallow. lots of tropical fruit as well.

Taste - wow is this all over the place and I am not sure how much I like it. sweet and tropical, but then a burnt flavor to follow that is interesting.

Mouthfeel - that burnt flavor is interesting and stays in your mouth

Overall - they tried something new and it was fun to try.
