Short's Brewing Company
121 N. Bridge St.
Short's Woodmaster: A high gravity Brown Ale fermented with Michigan maple syrup & toasted pecans.
Huge sweet nut and or hazelnut nose. Huge sweetness from maple syrup used in this brew?
Brown-hued. Pours a half-fingered head from the bottle; it exits stage-left rather quickly. Somewhat murky.
The flavor follows dead on from the aroma. Huge sweetness combined with nuttiness. Level of nuttiness is so high, it seems this flavor comes from an extract.
Medium body. The level of sweetness is off-putting.
Overall Impression: (6/10)
This beer reminds me of the Henry Weinhard's Hazelnut from many many years ago. Fake / extract flavoring. Way too sweet! Not a beer I will be revisiting. I actually couldn't even finish the bottle.
