20th February 2011
Hazy amber beer, little white head. Nice hops and guava nose. Crispy palate,dry. Bitterish hops - bitter orange marmalde that is wonderfully offset by good guava. Creamy malt base. Unapologetically bitter finish. Another cracking inventive beer from Shorts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with two fingers of white head.
S: Smells quite a bit like guava, fortunately. Some citrus hops and other sweet fruits with a very strong perfume hop note. A mild sweetness of malt and a definite grapefruit and pine aroma.
T: Very perfumey and floral on the palate as well. A moderate fruit/guava flavor, but a bit more towards the grapefruit zest side of things. Some sweet bread and toffee malts, as well. A moderate bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Still a nice fruit flavor to this with a nice citrus hop component.
