BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Short's Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Rotating

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

Medicinal off taste. Like the aroma but the band aid flavor ruins it for me. Not to have again. Zeus beard is dirty. This is actually a drain pour. Avoid

Bottled 4/14/16; drank 5/7/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge white head; a thick curtain of frothy lace.

Lime, fresh cut grass & faint honey notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & mild caramel flavors up front; an extremely dry, bitter finish. This was decent up front but the finish was absolutely brutal & unpleasant; I've had my last.
