COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This isn’t your average amber ale. We appreciate the time you took in selecting this fine beer. We are confident you will enjoy every drop. Seriously, one sip is probably not going to be cause for alarm, but by the time you finish this bottle you may never be able to enjoy a “regular” run-of-the-mill beer again. Immense malt body will take your palate hostage; its balanced hop bitterness will write your taste buds a ransom note. It may sneak into your house, rearrange your living room furniture, shave your cat, and change the message on your voicemail while you sleep. You will be forever changed. “Revenge is a draft best served cold.”

A - Served a clear copper-red color with a thin layer of white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some good lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of rich tasted caramel malts with some light dark fruit sweetness and a hint of booze. T - Starts off with sweet rich caramel malts with a touch of spice. Through the middle some more malt flavor comes through with a bit of hop and some light booze. The finish is a mix of rich malts with some light spice and a touch of booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a mellowing warming and a sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Pretty good balance of flavors but just maybe a touch thin bodied.

EJ Phair Shortys Revenge Draft. Murky, bright and dark copper/ amber color. Ivory colored wisp. Toasted malt/ cereal aroma. Sweet and fruity with notes of peaches and watermelon. Pretty hoppy, more so than I remember it tasting.

Glad to see E.J. Phair brewing again, although they have have been hit or miss in the past. This had a strong and clean malt, muted hop flavor but overly bitter. Still worked out okay, but not quite there.

Poured from tap an amber color with medium-sized frothy head. Aroma is malt and bread with a dash of floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt, bread, and a slightly resiny floral hoppiness that leaves a mild bittering at the end. It was tasty and nice to drink. I would drink it again.

STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - APR 26, 2006
dark brown hue with a tint of red –almost no head, small bubbles – nose of dark berries, cherries, and caddied fruit– Light to medium body – black cherries and a roasted malt taste, bright - aftertaste is long coffee and hops

Cory (372) - , California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Draft. Red/orange color small head. Sweet hops, citrus and toasted almond aroma. Medium body with a long dry nutty finish. I wouldn’t say its an amazing Belgian Strong, it feels more like a really nice hoppy brown. Either way it’s definitely pintworthy.

Slightly cloudy amber, no head. Orangey color and sceny. Sweet aromas, almost honey like. Sticky in the mouth, like molasses.

Pours dirty and murky into a British tulip imperial pint glass. The rusty chestnut tint is a lovely sight for traditional Olde English style Bitter ale enthusiasts. The aroma is bit underwhelming for such malty beer, but a pleasant roasted coffee smell prevails. This Ale is full flavored and hearty, revealing hints of walnut and roast malts. Definitely more suited to cold weather, but I'm slurping it down in 80 plus degree Pittsburg, CA and it's devilishly satisfying. The finish is long for a non barrel aged beer, caramel and boozy heat makes it a great dessert. Over all this is a solid representation of the style. Cheers EJ Phair!
