COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new fall seasonal which is a Northern Michigan version of a German style Marzen or Oktoberfest, done the Short’s Brew way. This beer is well balanced with Noble hop additions which provide a subtle bouquet and pleasant flavor which melds well with the malt profile consisting of 2 row, chocolate, special roast, caramel and Munich malts. It’s a brand new addition to the Short’s Brew family of beer. 40 IBUs

This bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Poured an amber color with a big off white head and lots of good lacing as it settled. Nose of roasted malts with nuts and spices. Medium in body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is again some nuts and ripe fruit. Nice lightly bitter finish. Quite a nice beer.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours reddy copper in colour, moderate off white head. Aroma and taste are nice sweet caramel malt, and nice noble hops. Prob a little hoppy for the style, but very drinkable! Good stuff!

Much better than the standard Oktoberfest offerings; this is complex, earthy, and nicely hopped.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle bought in Michigan. A big fluffy off white head slowly falls in on itself leaving nice lacing. The beer is cloudy and tea colored. This smells very nutty and has lots of nutmeg with softer spices and fruit. Delightful. The flavor is also nutmeg with more spice and a decent hop bite. There is also some earth and very light fruit. Was sorry to see the bottom of the glass with this beer. The finish was hoppy and fruity. A different but very nice version.

a woody, caramel, and greenly hoppy brew. rich and toasty malt, with clean lager notes and a classic octoberfest profile. no noticeable booze, nicely balanced and a medium body. more hops than a typical octoberfest but it’s quite a nice touch, and one i would gladly drink for most of the fall season!
