Short's Beard Of Zeus India Style Pale LagerShort's Beard Of Zeus India Style Pale Lager

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

L - It is a soft golden color. There is a slight haze to this beer. It is capped with three inches of rocky, off-white head that leaves some lacing.

S - The smell has citrus with what I perceive as a lime influence, contrary to the orange rind which I do not pick up.

T - The taste is just like the smell. I get citrus with a focus on lime. The finish is bitter with a lingering aftertaste.

M - Moderate

O - I must not have a sophisticated palate. All IPL's taste very similar to me. This one resonates as more bitter than previous IPL's. It's a pretty good beer. I have yet to dislike a beer of this style.
