A - Pours a hazy amber with a one-finger off white head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Dank piney hops and some caramely malt sweetness.

T - Good amount of sweet malts come through first. Piney bitter hops really take over the flavor once the sweetness fades. Lasting bitterness on the finish. Not as balanced as I would like.

M - Light body with medium carbonation. Oily dry mouthfeel.

O - Decent beer, glad i had a chance to try it. Not something I would seek out, but definitely interesting.

Bottled some time in July... most of the numbers are scratched away. At least I got the most important one. Poured into a shaker pint... sigh. :(

Appearance: Appropriately enough, a slightly hazy amber color. That's about it. A finger of a light tan head sits on top with a creamy consistency. Lacing's almost sip-for-sip from top to bottom. The label is, as most Short's labels are, great. An owl that looks stoned out of his mind smoking a pipe. Also like that purple background.

Smell: Somewhat sweet, but without any real fruity characteristics. I'd attribute that to the malts. The hops on display are slightly spicy, earthy hops, which work well with the "gritty" sort of malt that is in Lil' Wheezy.

Taste/feel: Yeah, it is what's advertised. It's a hoppy amber. Pretty much exactly the same as the smell, except with a bit more of that dirt sort of malt flavor on the finish. Solid bitterness on the back of the tongue. The aftertaste is the big thing that lets you know that this is an amber. The aroma and initial taste sort of tastes like a standard IPA until you get the malts. The feel is fairly light without much carbonation.

Lil' Wheezy's a pretty good beer. As it warms up, the beer becomes more like an amber as the malts come out a bit more. This beer's a bit too bitter for my liking as an amber, but it's still a very nice beer.
