As August speeds past, we know we’re bound to begin to notice the smallest signs of an impending autumn. A fallen leaf here, the echo of a football game announcer there, and fall themed beer! More than just your average autumn beer, it’s time to release one of our favorite ESB’s, the award winning Autumn Ale!
Autumn Ale (6.5% ABV – 45 IBU) is a true-to-style London Extra Special Bitter (ESB). It has a medium body, amber color, and full flavor. This beer exhibits a wonderful balance of malty sweetness and floral hop bitterness. The result is an ideal bridge between malty and hoppy beer styles. Autumn Ale is a silver medal winner from the 2006 Great American Beer Festival.
You can find Autumn Ale next to your other favorite Short’s brews on store shelves now throughout the state of Michigan. Grab your six pack before they’re gone!
And now we leave you with this poem.
Gearing up for fall with an ale of tasty sorts,
It’s an Extra Special Bitter made by the brewers here at Short’s,
Now that Nicie has flown south to winter in the Caribbean,
We introduce you to our next seasonal, something we really take pride in,
Malty, hoppy, amber colored, and chock-full of flavor,
Get ready cause it’s Autumn time, a beer to be savored,
Autumn Ale is cruising down the pack line and will soon be at the store,
We’re sure that just one six pack will leave you asking for more.
