2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
8 oz. can. Pours bright strawberry pink with the same color bubbly head that vanishes. Aroma has watered down strawberries and booze. Taste is sugary sweet strawberry cool aid and booze. Palate is somewhat heavy with all the sweetness and finishes warm and dry.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
8oz can. Pours neon red, and looks the part, actually. The aroma is good as well, surprisingly so - sweet. Taste is ok at the beginning, just bad at the end. Itís fizzy, right? Which makes sense for a beer-based cocktail but that doesnít make it any less weird. You can taste the beer at the very end, and itís unpleasant. Itís also higher calories than you might think as a "bud light" product, at 240. Drinkable, but definitely not that good either. Your call.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orangish-red color with a quick noisy pink head that just disappeared. No head and fruit punch colored is no way for a beer to start out. Nose of strawberry flavored Jell-o powder. Flavors of strawberry, raspberry, lime, popsicle, and Hawaiian punch. This is not beer in any sense. This is a strawberry flavored malt beverage. That being said, this doesnít taste bad. It just isnít beer.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
8 fl oz / 237mL can into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Kool-aid. Candy. It doesnít smell bad.....it just smells like juice or soda, not beer.
Appearance: Again, a bright red juice color. Soda-like head fizzes away immediately.
Taste: Strawberry candy. Sweet. The 8% abv is pretty obvious. This isnít as gross as Four Loko at all. However, I donít know how this doesnít count as malternative.
Palate: Exactly like a cold soda.
Overall: I suppose if I wanted to get drunk fast and not pay a lot of money, and I wanted it to be candy/soda sweet, this would be the "beer" Iíd drink. Itís not offensive, but I just donít like it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Poured a pinkish color with white head. Aroma is strawberry. Taste is a nice citrus strawberry that was a great breakfast beer camping.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8oz can from a memorial day cookout. Low haze neon fruit punch red, fizzing out light pink foam. No retention or lace. Nose is fresher strawberry candies, some moderate margarita mix lime, thick Hawaiian punch sugary childrenís unhealthy drink. Taste follows with moderate margarita mix spiked Hawaiian punch. Not gross, but so far from beer as an institution that it probably should be reconsidered as an Alcopop.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
24 oz can into a glass.
A: Pours a hazy pink color. Thereís NO head here; a fizzy wisp of white foam quickly fades away to nothing.
S: It smells like frozen strawberry daiquiri mix. I donít really get any detectable lime notes or (thankfully) Bud Light-esque beeriness.
T: Massive amounts of strawberry sweetness prevails over everything else. I have to dock tons of points for its chemical aftertaste and non-existent beer qualities. As a malternative, eh, itís not horrible.
M: There is a huge amount of lingering sweetness - it honestly feels chemical on the palate. I will give it some credit for going down pretty easily given its questionable nature and 8%.
O: A horrid excuse of a beer, plain and simple. However, itís an okay malternative that will quickly get you drunk. Go into it with those expectations and you may not hate it. Personally, I wonít touch this stuff ever again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear red with small pink head that diminishes to nothing. Aroma of strawberry and booze. Thin mouthfeel with acidic strawberry flavor and more like a boozy strawberry soda. Oddly refreshing

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
8 ounce can from a Kroger. Pours a scary artificial pink with no head. Aroma of sickly sweet fruit punch not resembling any actual fruit. The taste is candy strawberry. Thin bodied, very sugary. Blech.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sometimes I impulsively buy things, and this is one of them, I spotted an 8oz can at the checkout line at Giant Eagle and had to buy it, so I did and its gross. The End. nasty artificial taste coupled with cheap booze flavor. just gross.
