Highlights Short’s The Double Magician

03 November 2016

imageToday we’ll be performing some magic tricks, but no worries…there won’t be any rabbits or hats involved.  Tonight, Short’s Brewing was kind enough to make a beer appear in front of me, and for my magic trick, I plan to make it disappear.

This evening we’re test driving a new seasonal release from Short’s called The Double Magician.  As yimageou may have guessed, this beer is a double version of The Magician, a dark red London-style ale.  This new beer is a double London-style red ale, and if you’re not familiar with the style, this would be a great beer to learn more about it.  Traditionally, this style has complex malt combinations and a very light hop…so off we go.
The Double Magician pours a deep ruby color and the aromas lead with sweet caramel and toffee and end with a pleasant citrus pop.  The flavors follow with more toffee, and slight twist of orange with a dry slightly roasty finish.  I really liked the dark fruit flavors with just enough citrusy hops to balance it all out.  All in all a very drinkable and unusual beer.
This beer is available now (beginning 10/31) in six-packs of 12oz bottles in MI, PA, OH, IN, IL and WI.  The Double Magician hits a very sneaky 8.1%-AbV and a surprising 49 IBU, so be sure to share it with a friend.  Try this beer

for yourself…

and when you do, be sure to let us know what YOU think.
