Can't believe I haven't reviewed this one, it's been years. Usually I pick this one up in bottles, this year I was able to pick up a growler from the pub.
Aggressive pour into pint glass years an active, fizzy off white head of several fingers that's up and then down to nothing. No lacing, as if it never happened. Color is a golden brown and quite clear. Aroma is sweet cream and tart lime, with undertones of freshly crumbled graham cracker. Taste is tart, with some milky smoothness and a dry, dry finish.
I've found this one to be a love it or hate it among the people I know. Thankfully, I love it so more for me.

Another one of shorts' novelties that just doesn't work out.

This one just isn't for me. Not sure what they were going for, but I don't get it. This one was a rare Shorts miss. I normally am on board for anything they bottle.
