Yes we are bringing back Rhinelander Export! The beer that started the entire stubby beer bottle craze, but your “shorty” is now grown up. Made with the original recipe from yester-year, it is a refreshing and malty beer with a light and smooth finish. Look for it in your favorite retailer and on premise establishment.

207ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that settles leaving a few spots of thin lace. Aroma is mild malts and grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy hop bitterness. Flavors are not offensive, but this is still just another typical macro lager.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Thanks to Mike for this. Quite a bit of malty sweetness. Some grassy hops. And a little weird tasting. Serving: That tiny little bottle

Classic lager, much better drinking than others out there. Like it says...refreshing as the north woods, plus the tiny bottles are just plain awesome!

This is one of the better pale lagers out of Wisconsin. Good malt and yeast flavor, with gold color. This beer has palate, and is a pale lager I would like to drink again. Thanks to Bob for sharing.

Pours a light yellow color with a small white head. Aromas of corn and sweet honey. Taste is of corn, mineral water, and a touch of sweet honey. The finish is not offensive.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Shorty bottle. Clear golden pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is corn and honey. Lighter palate with some carbonation. Taste is honey and corn as well. Thanks, Bob, for the bottle - glad I was able to try it.

Shorty. Poured crystal-clear, bright golden with a fairly short-lived white head. The aroma picked up honey and corn sweetness with not much on top of it.. non-offensive, but non-enticing. The flavor found sticky honey and a pinch of vanilla at the core.. light, tacky bitterness around, but non-identifiable.. a tad tart. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. prickly carbonation.. OK feel. Drinkable.

207ml "shorty" bottle. Cost .49 cents, thought that was a bit steep but the bottle got me. It pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Smell has some grape and corn. The flavor is fruity with some mineral water and corn. Maybe better than the original but this one seems over priced, normally I would put the blurb that this is the same as bmc but cheaper but this is like an expensive bmc.

7oz bottle from Skyview, thanks! Clear straw yellow with a mammoth quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is skunked with deep roasted barley, malt, noble and grassy hops. Taste is metallic with burnt sweet malt and light hops. Astringent finish but tolerable for a pale lager.

Haven’t had the courage to try this again for years. Used to be totally dominated by butterscotch. Now I poured a decent white, foamy head that soon settles down and no lace. Color is a clear pale yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is sweet and beery with a little hop and malt. Flavor is where it falls down- it’s like the nose but way dominated by sweetness plus a little carbonic tang. Body is a little on the thin side with heavy carbonation. Finish is like flavor tapering quickly to neutral sweetness. Could maybe cook with it, but I won’t be having another.
