Notes/Commercial Description:
A super hopped American pale lager brewed exclusively with Zeus hops. The wet green dank aroma of the Zeus hops pour out of this beer with sweet hints of orange. Pleasant resiny hop essence dominate the flavor profile transitioning quickly to a bold bitterness that seems amplified due to the light clean lager finish

Very light and crisply yellow. Nice clarity, small white foamy head.

Grassy, earthy, mild aroma, potato-y, light.

Flavor is super light is crisp earthy bitter bite to finish. Relaxed carbonation and zero sweetness, grassy malt. Could be more hop forward...

A great easy drinker for a warm summer afternoon. Crisp, airy, light, and relaxing. Well done Shorts.
