BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rhinelander Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States
rhinelanderbrewery.com

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The beer that started the entire stubby beer bottle craze is back! Made with the original recipe from yester-year, it is a refreshing and malty beer made with only the finest 2-row malted barley and sun ripened hops that create a light and smooth finish. Carbonation dances off your tongue and reminds you that the best things in life are crisp just like the northwoods! Look for it in your favorite retailer and on premise establishment.

There are times, WRT The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody, that I feel compelled to laugh. Previously, it was in frustration at the mounting and (seemingly) insurmountable volume, but in this case, it is at the small and subsumable volume of a "Shorty". Yo, Shorty, let's get it on! I am short in stature as a male, but people constantly make the mistake of thinking that I only like women of my height. Au contraire! I have had many statuesque girlfriends, but for them, I was a novelty & not a keeper. 8=( I like being their little monkey, climbing all over them as they laugh & giggle. Big things come in little packages. Many thanks to my local, in-person trader, tone77, for dropping this off for me!

From the bottle: "Shorty"; "Refreshing as Wisconsin's Northwoods".

I was not pleased by the screw-top nature of this pee-wee bottle, but I still conducted a gentle pour. No matter how vigorous my swirl, I could not raise anything more than a skim of foam as head. Sometimes, you just have to concede & give up. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with filament brightness. Nose was off, but only slightly off. It had a honey-like sweetness, but something just did not seem right. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and watery, The taste was Minhas light - plastic, bubble gum & dry cleaning plant & I could hear the Cyberleader suit calling me, but not strongly enough nor in enough volume to risk being found by Doctor Who and/or Torchwood. It strikes me that ALL Minhas products nee beers should be put in shorty/stubby/pony bottles for quick & easy consumption. Less to suffer through that way. Finish was semi-dry, moderately passable & another example of a flawed style. Enjoy!

From notes taken 08/21/16:

No head to speak of. Just some large bubbles on the surface. A mostly clear dull golden amber. Sweet grainy and honey aromas typical of the adjunct/pale lager style. Much the same to the taste, but thankfully less sweet than it could be with cleaner, floral hopping providing balance. Still, seems watered down, but could more so reflect mouthfeel, which is light, and low in carbonation for the style. Still, refreshing in its own right. Overall, weak, I’m sorry to say.

A- Poor showing for the bottle size...what is this? The beer pours a golden color and is very clear. The head is pretty much non existent and lacing is invisible as well...instead there is an oily film coating the side of my glass. Carbonation appears to be normal, with only a few columns of bubbly goodness rising to the top of the liquid.

S- Bananas! This is heavy in ripe banana fruit for sure. There is another heavy aroma of sweet honey, which is a unique combination....butterscotch sweetness, candy corn and other sweet adjectives are noted as well. There is zero hop bitterness....

T- Corn! There isn't much more to this beer except that the flavor is much too sweet and reminds me of boiled corn water. To it's credit, there is a honeyed sweetness about it as well but is is strictly an adjunct lager....not good on the palate.

M/O- Very light bodied, heavy in carbonation and not quite a beer in my opinion....rather a cloying, fizzy rendition of something resembling my favorite beverage. I've had worse but not too many have this distinction.....Minhas....need I say more? Don't waste your money on this swill.

This stuff is just bad. Tons of off flavors and diacetyl. This one is harder to drink than most BMC.
