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. I’m a big fan of Bloody Mary, and this is just plain wrong, in my opinion. Now I’ve 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. Short’s nailed this one.
Spicy tomatoes, peppercorns, alcohol, Tabasco, peppers. Admittedly, I am not the biggest fan of bloody marys. However, I can’t imagine a beer masquerading as a bloody mary more convincingly than Short’s 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 wife’s salad. Therefore vegetable aromas, a bit pickle, a look of cloudy orange. Average and a bit oily mouthfeel.

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 I’m feeling some barrel-aged type flavors for whatever reason. The peppery notes are the highlights of this brew. It’s not terrible. They pulled off this tomato-beer thing better than any other I’ve had.

Bottle compliments of Jale at Flossmoor’s 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 didn’t 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours amber with a small creamy head. The aroma is peppery spicy with clear tones of tomatoes and more subtle notes of horseradish. Some malt to back it up. The flavour is light sweet and light bitter. Pepper, subtle spices and tomatoes. Quite robust malt backbone. The mouthfeel is clean and light carbonated. Spicy aftertaste. Medium bodied.
