Short's Autumn Ale

Another autumn has dawned on the Midwest, bringing along with it the glutton of autumn beers. I thought it was the perfect time to try another fresh bottle of Autumn Ale by Short’s Brewing Company.

I originally had it earlier this year. Since Autumn Ale is brewed in the fall, I wondered how fresh a January bottle would be. Being that Autumn Ale is a slightly above average beer in my opinion, it wasn’t something that I was going out of my way for but a situation presented itself, so why not.

Hops are nice in the beer: floral hops dominate citrus hops. These come through in the aroma, especially early. Mid beer I couldn’t find them anywhere. Autumn Ale had transitioned to a malt forward beer: very sweet. The taste originally had the malts but those seemed to go south along with the aroma.

Another year and the same result. I feel I rated this beer fairly earlier this year. I would have it again but, as I stated, I not going to go out of my way for it. Enjoy!

Aroma: 7 (25%), Taste: 8 (25%), Look: 8 (15%), Drinkability: 7 (35%), Overall: 7.4

Useless Fact: By raising your legs slowly and laying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand.
