Beer Review

Prolonged Enjoyment



Brewed by:

Short’s Brewing

Elk Rapids, Michigan, USA


Style | ABV

American Amber / Red Ale |  3.50% ABV



Prolonged Enjoyment has a huge earthy hop fragrance of green grass, pine, and citrus fruit. The sweet, malty flavors are met quickly by zesty American hop characteristics. This India Pale Ale has a light body but is packed with extraordinary bitterness. Bitter qualities linger briefly, before the mildly dry finish takes over.


Brian: Thumbs Down

Josh: Thumbs Down
