3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. Slight tomato scent, little spice from the horseradish, like a Bloody Mary.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thin eggshell ring of foam. Nose of peppery spices with some pilsner notes underneath. Taste is not too sweet or bitter, more salty than anything and a touch tart. Lighter side of medium bodied, smooth, slightly active carb with a salty, tangy finish. Not nearly as gross as I thought it would be. Actually pretty decent, though itís not going to replace my bloody marys, which incidentally are phenomenal.

This was a super beer. tasted just like a bloddy beer. Golden in color, clear with a thin head. I was impressed.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Fresh tomatoes and pimento aroma, reminds me quite a bit of green olive brine. Cloudy amber with a small ivory head. Vegetal malt flavor, with a an odd tannic spiciness, almost oaky. Iím a big fan of Bloody Mary, and this is just plain wrong, in my opinion. Now Iíve got to go make myself a Bloody Mary just on principle.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is reminiscent of a conflagration trapped inside an hourglass. Fire-tinged orange and red hued liquid with low carbonation, thin head, and very little lacing.
The aroma = bloody mary. Shortís nailed this one.
Spicy tomatoes, peppercorns, alcohol, Tabasco, peppers. Admittedly, I am not the biggest fan of bloody marys. However, I canít imagine a beer masquerading as a bloody mary more convincingly than Shortís Bloody Beer. The spices and pepper are quite forward, and the beer brings plenty of heat.
Best in small quantities. Absolutely worth a try. Extremely creative and interesting.
Serving type: on-tap

and a half years old, I am having this beer, courtesy of FlandersNed. It slightly looks but very much tastes of a Bloody Mary. The pickled aspect has taken over, fortunately, and I am easily able to enjoy this with my wifeís salad. Therefore vegetable aromas, a bit pickle, a look of cloudy orange. Average and a bit oily mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. I found this to be a ridiculously fun beer to drink. The aroma is of a Bloody Mary, I get tomato, celery, pepper, dill, slight tartness, heat from the horseradish. This is a very well made beer and it kept a smile on my face. Nice job.

Bottle at Hopcat. Well, I was just too curious to not try this. Tomato is apparent in the aroma, not as much in the flavor. The spices are natural and refrshing. When I take a sip Iím feeling some barrel-aged type flavors for whatever reason. The peppery notes are the highlights of this brew. Itís not terrible. They pulled off this tomato-beer thing better than any other Iíve had.

Bottle compliments of Jale at Flossmoorís pre-DLD evening. Delivers what it promises: a bloody mary in a beer. I see where this beer could be a love/hate thing but I liked it. I was just glad it didnít come across as Bud Chelada. Pretty cool.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed. Amber-orange pour with off-white head. Nose is light tomato, dill, pizza spice. Flavor starts with tangy tomato and dill and finishes with light peppery spice. Some residual tangy tomato. No flavor is really over-powering and actually, as a whole, the beer comes together quite well.
