Alien Einstein is a light bodied India Pale Lager with a dull golden color and an inviting aroma of tangy grapefruit juice. A bright burst of fruity and earthy hop flavors immediately hits the palate. This beer exemplifies the well-rounded versatility of the American Mosaic hops used exclusively in this beer. - See more at: http://www.shortsbrewing.com/beers/alien-einstein/#sthash.ESBeb3iG.dpuf

bottle. Pale golden with minimal head. Very light body. Punchy hops with medium bitterness. It’s a nice very hoppy lager, I certainly wouldn’t have guess this was gluten free.

Got this on the first day of distribution to shops (as far as I know) and shorts seems to either hit it out of the park or have a complete dud. This was a dud for me - too sweet too much pucker very odd sweet fruity lager will stick to one of their other amazing beers

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange with some thin, white head. Nose of corn, a little sweat sock, pine, heavy chive. Flavor has mostly chive, pine, corn, sweat socks. Zesty finish. Strange.

dalekliz (826) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Huge aroma, sweet and bitter, with hops, citrus, limes, and malt. Taste of limes and malt, ends with bitter citrus hops. Lingering bitter limes. Very nice, interesting beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Yellow-gold pour with a nice white head. A quite hoppy lager with a good hop bite in the finish. Interesting offering from Short’s.
