Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Aroma is of ginger and spicy rye, palate is nice malt and rye then the ginger pops and its spicy warming and refreshing all at once. A perfect summer beer! Sure may sound odd but tastes fabulous.....its what Shorts does best!!

75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 02.05.2009
Aroma has lots of ginger, sweetish malty notes (rye?) and some resin. Flavour has sweet, resiny malt, some stinging ginger and peppery spices. Once again an odd beer from Shorts and once again I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle. Been saving this for a while, but I think itís correct to pop it today. It pours this amazing looking cloudy and glowing orange/sunlight colored body with a big everlasting beautiful fluffy off-white head thatís lacing down the sides of the glass. Looks really beautiful in the glass this one. On the aroma I get lots of things! Mainly ginger, honey and lemons, but here is also some traces of candy, toilet soap and there is a woody sourness. Almost like itís a bit infected. Definitely an interesting aroma on this one. The taste? Hmm.. Also quite interesting. Ginger? Yeah, absolutely, but itís not to dominating. Itís average carbonated with an average oily mouthfeel. Light wood-sour and quite spicy. I get a good old mint hint here before it ends smooth gingerly, light dry and quite gingerbread like in the finish. I have to say that I would probably have managed with a smaller bottle, but it really grows on you and all in all I grew quite found of this one. 06.09.2012

750 ml bottle shared at Naifest. Pours a clear amber/dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice ginger, spicy rye mix with additional floral and moderately sweet malts. The flavor has spicy rye notes, sushi like ginger, sweet malts with a mild herbal finish. Interesting, but a touch past its prime.
