3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 1st rating 3/28/2013: Pours golden yellow with a lackluster head and decent lacing. Very crisp and smooth. The carbonation is just enough to make this a very refreshing beer- one that includes a natural hint of strawberry instead of an artificial flavoring. Very nice drink for a warm day.
2nd rating 8/3/2013: Interesting strawberry aroma and flavor- very light presence. The taste is lightly sweet as well and is a good refresher if cold enough. Not bad at all.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a mildly hazy golden orange with fizzy white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of strawberries with mild notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

The strawberry is evident in nose and flavor, but not overwhelming. Typical lager-esque sweetness to go along with the berry flavor, but not cloying. Clean on the palate, easy going. Very light mouthfeel. Alright for what it is.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Very bready malt aromas with hints of strawberry at the edges.
Appearance: Cloudy gold with a thin white head.
Taste: Medium sweetness with hints of sourness at the edges.
Palate: Medium body, light carbonation, syrupy texture, long finish.
Overall: Meh...it tastes like drinking strawberry jelly or something similar. Not too much beer, but a lot of fruit here.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz can poured to pint glass. Loads of brilliant white head that lingers for some time. Moderate lacing. Smells mildly of artificial strawberry flavoring. Straw colored and looks a lot like most American adjunct lagers. Mild Tangy sweet strawberry flavor with little else. I used to like this when it was still a seasonal item and was still flavored with fresh first harvest Louisiana strawberries. Not the case anymore. A nice novelty for the light beer drinker but not much here otherwise. So sad........ Cheers!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strawberry, pils, and unpleasant puke acid in the aroma. Strawberry and pils flavor. A little watery, and then weak in the finish also. Pils and strawberry is somewhat awkward as a combo. Drinkable, and the elements separately are fine, but this beer comes up short overall.

Bottle to glass. Strawberry is strong in aroma, clean, not much else. Taste is light grass and strawberry, touch of Soapyness. Very easy drinking. Minimal carbonation and minimal head. Nothing special, but it’s a Good simple spring beer.
