3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice strawberry red. Nose is fresh berries. Taste is sweet strawberries followed by a hint of tart raspberries and slight rye kick at the finish. Well played for a 8% beer. Shorts doing what Shorts does well!
Color is deep pink/purple gold. Aroma of strawberry jam, hint of soy/Marmite. Taste is dry but full-bodied strawberries, blueberries, hops with some alcohol warmth at the end. Simple but solid. KansaiBeerLvrs (5500) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 12, 2017
I believe this is the first Short's Brew I've had.
Soft Parade 7.5%
This pink-red brew is made with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. The aroma is insanely jammy and sweet. Medium to light bodied and dry. The taste is berry, wafers and alcohol.

I have no fucking clue if I'm rating the right beer here because the fucking brewers are so casual about their fucking labels. I don't taste any rye in this but I do taste a ton of berries and malt but little hops. It taste quite good and I'm rating it high, but I don't detect the 7.5% ABV reported because I may not be rating the actual beer listed here.This tastes like it has no alcohol at all. If I'm wrong, forgive me. But I'm not wrong about brewers screwing around with their labeling!!!!!! AndySnow (8305) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2017

Unperceptable aroma. I get figs and twigs, dark berries, bright berries, caramel, candied dried fruit and malt. Deceptive the way it seems pale and fruity but the balance between sweet, heat and malt is good. remerts2 (42) - LATVIA - SEP 11, 2017
Labs ogu alus ar vieglu skābenumu, bet labi sajūtamu alus pamatu. Gan garšā, gan aromātā ir jūtamas ogas, arī krāsa, protams, ir atbilstoša. Sabalansēts alus, jo alkoholu vispār nevar just. FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 19, 2017

Sweet honey in the aroma and taste, hints at diacetyl. More berries in the aroma than taste, which is a bit watery, and buttery. Dirty in appearance, not particularly appealing. Fruit juice meh.
650ml bottle (RBESG2017 Grand Tasting) (5:3:5:3:10=2.6)
Cleaner this time, diacetyl gone. Still more a fruit juice than a beer. Too sweet. Silly brew.
F: thin, white, quick gone.
C: red/gold, hazy.
A: malt, raspberries, strawberries, red berries.
T: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, light body, low/medium carbonation, good, sample from bottle @ RBESG 2017, Grand tasting in Tallin, Estonia.
