COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Curl was one of the first Imperial beers made at Short’s. This American Pilsner has an appealing clear, bright, and golden straw color. Faint esters of grain and aromas of fresh baked bread are prominent throughout the beer. The flavor results from the abundance of flake maize used in this recipe. There are also hefty doses of hops that create a pronounced dryness that seamlessly blends into a crisp, clean finish.

Drake (13491) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2017
12 ounce bottle from the brewpub. Slightly hazy yellow, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of strong grassy hops, some onion. Pale malt. The taste is oniony, grassy hops, sweet pale malts (I guess that explains the corn). Medium bodied, moderate lingering bitterness. Nice!

eaglebones (105) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold in color with a medium white head. I don’t get much for aroma, just slight floral, yeast, and bread notes. Thin body and medium carbonation. A funky sweet, bready taste up front balanced by a crisp bit of citrus and short-lived bitterness. Interesting and enjoyable.

johnnnniee (4180) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Tasted and smelled vastly different when first opened, had an almost Belgianesque yeasty feel to it. I let it sit for a while and it really opened up, or the bad stuff dissipated. Big sweet light sugary maltiness with a fair amount of higher alcohols. Grassy earthy pine sol hops. Not a fan, but better the longer it sits.

chucklemation (1590) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is bread and grass, with some fruit. Flavor is sweet bread, some grass and earthiness, and a touch of fruit. Has a thick body feel. Decent.

deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of straw and hay with a bit of grain and earthiness underlying. Flavor has lots of bread and straw with a hint of grass in the finish.

Nephilium (1788) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Very mild malt aroma. Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Starts with a slightly sweet malt aroma, with a big punch of hops, lots of pine and grassy notes. Very nice bitter finish, and light bodied. This is a really easy drinking beer, with the alcohol really well hidden.
