COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. A lighter bodied golden ale made with pinot noir grape juice from Chateau Chantel on Old Mission Peninsula. A perfume of fruity, vinous aromas gathers at the top of the glass, released by the ample amount of carbonation within. Strong wine-like flavors present tart, clean and slightly dry qualities that have an astringency similar to the tannins in wine, impacting the entire mouth from top to bottom. Noble hop additions present wonderful, earthy hop characteristics, complimenting the overall personality and providing a mellow bitterness into the finish.

On draft at EBF. Not sure what type of wine flavor Short’s was shooting for on this one but IMO it sort of missed the mark. Slightly dry like wine but it just seemed off to me.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Cloudy apricot body, thin off-white head. Light nose with light fruits and hints of spice. Dry, floral body, with flower petals, grape, and lots of grain and sharp cereals. Finishes with a firm bite. Dry and wine-like with modest alcohol.
