Short’s Sasquatch Named Codini

Formerly brewed at Short’s Brewing Company
Bellaire, Michigan USA
5% Brown Ale | 1 Rating | 24 IBU | Special Release |
A medium bodied, light brown ale made w/ oranges, marshmallow, chocolate, and cinnamon. Following the path laid before it by other recent R&D beers, this one definitely picks up where they left off and then goes way beyond. This beer features a crazy sounding name, four unusual and exotic brewing ingredients, and a malt composition that makes it extremely hard to define. The initial aromas of zesty orange fragrances reluctantly give way to subtle hints of coco and malt. Tangy orange flavors dominate the first taste and linger into a slightly bitter finish. Eventually, the elusive malt sweetness complimented by chocolate and faint marshmallow flavors join harmoniously with the citrus and give way to traces of cinnamon. This beer is so complex that many individual components do not become more prevalent until warmer consumption temperatures are reached.
