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

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a two-finger foamy white head. Lots of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is grassy with a light amount of orange and grapefruit.

T - The taste starts sweet with orange, grapefruit, and some grainy yeast. The finish has a nice piney hop aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp and clean mouthfeel.

O - This is a very crisp and clean lager. This is a great easy drinking summer beer.

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

Very light and crisply yellow. Nice clarity, small white foamy head.

Grassy, earthy, mild aroma, potato-y, light.

Flavor is super light is crisp earthy bitter bite to finish. Relaxed carbonation and zero sweetness, grassy malt. Could be more hop forward...

A great easy drinker for a warm summer afternoon. Crisp, airy, light, and relaxing. Well done Shorts.
