3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
First of all, is this really 9%?!? Honestly tastes like 6% TOPS, I really don’t believe this could be 9, well, keep a six pack around for your date if nothing else!
Clear ruby cranberry color with a very light white head, I can tell it’s not filtered despite the clarity of this sauce, aroma is pilsener malt and raspberry, flavor is light pilsener malt, edgy bitters and some extra bitter tannin kick too, mildly tart and slightly acidic, this stuff is really a lot better much warmer than your fridge temp. so that more of the interesting fruit flavors can come through, a little grassy

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear pinkish red with a thin white ring. Little carbonation and no lacing. Aroma is slightly tart and sweet fruit. With all of the mixed fruits I thought this would be either sweet or sour. It was dry and somewhat harsh. Very disappointing!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at First Draft. Pinkish color with a whitish pink head. Lots of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry over a light, crisp, wheat beer. Fruity and girly, but drinkable. No artificiality at all. Tastes like the berries were steeped for weeks. I dunno, I kind of like it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m not sure what a Soft Parade is; to my knowledge, The Doors have never explained. Undoubtedly it’s something gross. Probably scatological. Color is pinkish. Aroma is grainy sweet. Fruity flavor with a lot of berry - as you’d expect - yet it’s not cloying or artificial. Feel is smooth, medium-bodied, and surprisingly warm. This is my introduction to Short’s. I probably should’ve started with some hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish pink. Nose of cherry berry and wet wheat-like malt. Flavor mild, sweet, tart cherry/strawberry with a bit of rye spice and more wheat ale-like backing. Lingering fruit and bitter rye. Pretty good on a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light cloudy pink with small head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor have nice sweetness and subtle strawberry and tropical fruits. Easy to drink and refreshing!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. A slightly hazy red beer with a huge pinkish head. The aroma has strong notes of strawberries, which is smelled far from the glass. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of berries to start off with, leading to a dry lightly tart finish. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Clean aroma with nice fruity character, berries but not one particular type identifiable. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Moderate sweetness with winy acidic and berry tartness. Smooth fruity-berry flavor throughout. Just a bit of bitterness and astringency at the finish with nice light fruity-sweet after.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear reddish color, looks like a strawberry cooler. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Tart strawberry nose, flavor is light tart strawberry reminds me of a unsweet wine cooler. Slightly higher ABV is hidden. $2.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 355ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Reddish amber with white head. Phew this is sweet, artificial bubblegum flavours, strawberry, raspberry but in a slightly chemical way. The sweetness continues throughout, aspartame in character. Borderline stuff.
