3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Great Taste. Pours a really ugly hazy copper with an orangey head. Nose is spot on for a bloody. Lea & Perrins, roma tomatoes, hot dogs & black pepper round out the aroma. On tasting, it tastes like a beer with bloody mary mixed in. Booze, pizza sauce & Lea & Perrins. This tastes EXACTLY like it is supposed to. Really damn cool, though I’m not really sure how much I could actually drink. Still, really cool.

Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of tomatoes and pepper. The taste is tomatoes, pale malts and a peppery finish. Medium bodied. Not my thing, but pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-amber with plenty of chunky particles floating in the soup. Aroma of tomatoes, black pepper, vegetables and malt. Basically a malted V8 with a spicy/peppery finish. Tomatoes, pepper, vegetables and somewhat acidic. Okay at what it does, but anything more than a little can like you get with V8 is a bit too much.

Cloudy amber beer. Crisp palate. Instant spicy hit from the pepper and more so from the horse radish and celery. From the mid through to the finish the tomatoes come through. They are rich and not sharp or acidic. Warming afterglow of spice. A remarkable and unique beer. Well balanced in it’s unusual ingredients. Joe Short is a genius!

At Short’s Brewing Monster Tap Takeover at Churchkey. Okay, I understand that this beer will not be everyone’s thing. Because I knew exactly what I was getting into, I really really really liked this one. If you’re not a fan of a Bloody Mary, avoid. Roma tomatoes, dill, peppercorn both on the aroma and taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle at tasting. Cloudy reddish orange pour, small off-white head. Largely tomatoes, with ground black pepper, vegetable, celery, and light horseradish spiciness. I guess it would be okay if you liked V8 juice.
