  • A: Normal, clear pale gold.

    S: Very hard to decifer. Some roasted malt, then a whole bunch of other stuff

    T: Not bad at all. Lactose, sweetness (not so much malt), a tangy citrus, and other flacore.

    D: Very surprised I liked this brew. In general I hate spice and gimmicky beers, and this seemed like it would be the poster child for all of that. But, damn I kind of liked the taste. Somehow the blend Shorts did of marshmallows, graham crackers, lactose, limes, malt, hops, and who knows what else blended into a decent tasting mix.

  • Pours with about an inch of off-white, thick foam. Retention is about average with some light sticky lacing.

    Aroma is something that I just can't put my finger. Sugar with a zest from citrus with some wheat malt.

    Taste is interesting. A little bit of sweet, zest citrus, and again wheat malt but a bit bread too.

    Light bodies with very little carbonation. Almost hard to detect.

    Usually gimmick beers aren't for me as they are over the top and just that: a gimmick. Somehow and some way, Short's pulls this one off well. I couldn't drink a bunch but the occasional would be fun and interesting.
