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.

Thanks to StormKing47 for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the black pepper, celery, horseradish and dill. I don’t get too much tomato in the aroma. The aroma is very herbal overall.
The flavor is similar and is very similar to a bloody mary. I get a lot of dill and other herbs, along with some tomato and horseradish. I didn’t think these flavors would work well in a beer, but this beer is unique and remarkably. good. Definitely glad I got to try this one. I don’t like bloody mary’s, but I really enjoyed this beer.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
