3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at HopCat in East Lansing. The pour is a reddish light brown, not the color I’d want to see. The aroma is very bland, almost as I’d expect, but there is a subtle sweetness to it that I had not anticipated. The taste is alright. Light, mildly aromatic, and then it finishes overly sweet. The mouth feel doesn’t let it linger too long, and that’s a positive thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Amber-burgundy body, not much of head, some oily residue. Cherry Amber malt tones, some smooth caramel too. Very British yeast nuances, soft and raisiny. Pretty easy to drink at, but not really my favorite example of the style. Malty, lots of caramel flavor. OK, certainly a lot of flavor and well in the Brown Ale style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Cask Pub & Kitchen and drunk at home. Dark brown beer with thick beige head. It has a touch of sourness, some brown malt, not much hop, some milk chocolate. Not sure I like the little touch of sourness on it. I mean it’s not a Flemish Brown is it?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown color. Nice sweet caramel aroma with some nuttiness. Flavor is one of roasted malt, nuts, and sweet caramel. Nice roasted finish. Medium body with a lighter more watery feel. Quite drinkable. Won't over power so pairs well with food.

Nice to drink, though not among the better brown ales I’ve tried. Not one of Shorts’ top brews.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown with pretty minimal head. Not much that stands out in the aroma, some caramel and grain. Taste is fairly tame, caramel and light toasted malt. Pretty boring overall, not one of their better brews.

Dark Brown, Surprising Small Head that dissipated almost immediately, leaving no lacing. Toasted, Chocolate, just a light sign of hops on the back end. Decent.
