3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably my favorite of the Shorts line-up and one of the best amber ales brewed in Michigan. Nice chewy color with a solid craggy head. Maltiness, nuts, and a little tinge of hop in the aroma. Great mouthfeel, this is one thirst quenching beer. It really does capture the spirit of season.

Okay aroma. Solid appearance. Taste is good, but nothing special. It hits the palate well. I give it a 50.

Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, fruit, and bread. Flavor is much more mild, with a very light bitterness and some sweet caramel and bread. Has a light body. Not bad, but not too memorable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; lots of fine sediment floating around though. A semi-transparent burnt orange with foamy eggshell head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and lightly hoppy with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but unmemorable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Short’s Autumn Ale pours a cloudy bronze orange with a decent beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is floral and bread. The flavor is also floral and bread. Overall this is pretty mediocre beer.

352 mml bottle tasted on the 21/10/2014. Fruity and hoppy aroma but not all intense that it must be. Clear orange colour with a minimal bubbly white head. Taste of yeast, herbs, grass and flowers note. Bitter on paladar. Nice aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonatin. Next one please!
