Short's Chatterbox.

Short's almost always does a solid job in terms of brews and my local Kroger had a great sale on left over Summer singles and this was one of them I picked up.

Look - Mours a deep murky amber with a three finger off white head that looks like it is going to stick around for awhile. Carbonation is unreadable due to the murk. Left some very solid lacing. 4.5.

Smell - Picking up some faint hints of what could have been dank hops that never quite fully form. Overall not a great nose. 3.

Taste - Grapefruit piths are met straight away by an odd maltiness with a touch of water and lemon zest. There really isn't much else to say about this beer. It is quite basic and to the point. 3.25.

Feel - Body is quite full with a large amount of catbonation and a good dose of creamyness that coats the mouth. Beer goes down a bit watery upon swallo. 3.25.

Overall - Well, it wasn't bad but even as an APA this was pretty weak. Not sure if it is past its day or not. But hey, this is a laid back relaxed drinking night with a few buddies so I don't need anything overly complex. 3.25.

Decent flavor, but too flat and watery in mouth feel for me.
