2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours out a golden color witha one finger (but quickly disappearing) white head. Aromas are of strawberries, albiet kind of a fake strawberry, and the grain from the malt comes through as a shortcake scent. Flavor then comes across as fairly artificial, almost like a Fruit Roll Up or strawberry flavored Special K. Itís not really disgusting or anything, but Iím not sure to what extent I would call this beer. Maybe "Alcoholic Fruit Roll Up" beverage or something like that. Still, it is the first beer Iíve tried with strawberries...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy of Nick76. The aroma offers white cake, powdered strawberry mix and a hint of toasted malts. The body is ever a bright pale golden color and the head is two fingers thick, firm and quite lasting. The first sip greets you with lightly fruit-kissed grains gives the impression of a sugary breakfast cereal with water, rather than milk, added. It really doesnít taste like strawberries, but rather just generically fruity. That being said, itís not bad for what it is was obviously designed to be. It is a lightly fruity lager-pop and I suspect A-B would be proud to brew something like this.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 While there is a hint of Strawberry, its too much on the mild side for it to be truly effective. The rest of the beer is just a flat, bland attempt at nothing.
gave another chance, it does have some reddeming qualities but far from outstanding

I was disappointed by the aroma or lack of. The flavor had a hint of strawberry sweetness. Nothing much else going on. Good for the summer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours an golden amber body with thin head. Aroma is of sweet ripe strawberries. Flavor is sweet and syrupy. Dominate strawberry flavor, sugary. Too sweet for me to drink too much. Good thing I have a wife who likes sweet beers to split it with.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Strawberry malt aroma (smells like Strawberry Quik(tm) - my childhood favorite). Golden yellow with small head. Strawberry malt flavor. Pretty weak. If you want a fruity, light beer, really would be a good choice. Will probably be a big hit with anyone who likes their Purple Haze.

Weak and disappointing. Pour was a light brown with a little white head. Aroma of sugar and strawberries. Taste was very bland. Strawberry in the background and metallic and corny in the front. Blah

Great for what it is....a strawberry beer. Very sweet and sugary with not much beer taste. It is excellent for its style but not as a overall.
