One of the best pilsners Iíve ever had. Itís really hard to find a good pils in Michigan, but this is by far my favorite.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer feels like a light beer in its texture and weight. Refreshing brew for the thirsty punter, but lacking the strength needed for sippy savoring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Mildly hazy yellow color. Thin white head. Good lace. Nice, smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Clean finish. Like so many Shorts brews, this is very quaffable. Easy to drink and refreshing. Nice hop profile, kind of grassy, light citrus peel, little pepper. Good bready pilsnery malt base. Mild bitter taste, but a solid amount of sweet, too... Love it. My kind of pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: † Straw colored, very hazy, moderate white frothy head, nice lacing. † Strong straw/hay on the nose, sweet, a little dry...† Almost too strong in its grassiness. † Really really husky and chewy. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Not your lighter crisp example, this one is chewy, very strong straw/hay, and a bit drier than others. † Different, and interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 3/13/12 and poured 9/29/12
Appearance: A murky yellow color with a thin head that leaves surprisingly decent lacing.
Smell: A very light hop aroma... maybe even a bit of wheat-like smells as well.
Taste/feel: As expected, mild. Drinks a lot like a light beer. The biggest thing about this beer that I donít care for is that instant it hits the tongue. It feels like carbonated water, and thatís really it. But once the taste comes out, itís not too bad. Thereís a decent bit of hops and even some spices in there. A very mild aroma and taste, but thatís whatís expected with this style. It gets better as you get to the bottom of the glass, but still a pretty ordinary beer -- would make a GREAT beer for Summer.
