3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
26th November 2010
Brewed with Marshmallow, lactose, lime ans Graham Crackers. Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Crispy palate. Pleasant tangy lime. Minerals. Offset by lactose sweetness and a hint of biscuits! A pretty much perfectly flavoured novelty beer! Love Joe Short’s creativity!

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy copper with a fine, foamy off-white head. Smells bready with just a hint of citrus/sour. Med body. The flavor is passing different. I think I get the graham cracker, and the sweet could be marshmallow. There’s a touch of lime. Some brewers just have too much fun.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample at MBG 2010 Winterfest. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex lime aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Heavy creamy lime flavor with a medium to heavy sour lime finish of long duration. Refreshing brew that is a standout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a light amber color with almost no head. There’s a bit of an opaqueness to the beer.
S: The nose is a bit confusing. On the one hand, that could be lactobacillus there, but it could also be the limes providing that tart fruitiness. There’s a bit of a funkiness which leads me to believe there’s some bugs. A very mild sweetness to the beer at times.
T: Lime zest really stands out on the palate as I take the first few sips. Again, a slight tinge of lactobacillus, but it could just be the funky nature of this Short’s beer. A mild graham cracker sweetness and hints of sugar to go along with the tartness.
M: The body is medium but the carbonation is on the low side.
D: Hmmm, I’m still scratching my head on this one. There were some things I liked about it, but things I didn’t. A bit like limeade, truth be told, with a bit more sweetness.

Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of lime, cookie and some lactic notes, hope it tastes better than it smells. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of lime, and light cookie with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler…Cloudy amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is nutty and lightly fruity with malty notes of caramel and praline – just a touch medicinal. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is cloyingly sweet and sugary; moderately tangy and fruity with a modest caramel component. Did I mention sweet and sugary? Lord, why? Sweet, mildly tangy finish with just a trace of key lime.
