0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Ain’t no time like the right time in Southeastern Alaska to have a crappy beer to remind how crappy fishing was to me.
Sigh, here goes.
I did pour this into a pint glass and thought my eyebrows were just about blown off due to the carbonation pounding through the beer and practically in my face, and no, I did not shake this up I wasn’t born yesterday. There really wasn’t anything else to look at.
The smell had a glossed over sort of strawberry trying to come but ultimately failing.
The taste actually had the strawberry but it was really subpar as I didn’t really find it to be satisfying.
On the palate, I would like to say this beer watched that commercial about "going into beast mode" (nike, maybe, sorry, can’t remember). The carbonation moves into beast mode and basically rapes and strips my taste buds and tongue without letting me even to try to say "uncle.....you win, you win, please let me go.
Overall, what the flying fill in the blank was this. Cue Dierks Bentley: "what was I thinking?"

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tiny can at the TLF to try it out before buying more for the beach. Not sure what to say. Remotely resembles a margarita mixed with beer but also buckets of food coloring and flavorings. I didn’t expect much and it delivered that low bar.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
welp, why not try it. drank from the can after making popsicles. oh my sugar! A truly nauseating amount of sugar with some saltiness and tequila flavors. whew. then the boost kicks in and makes my head spin. the strawberry is second or third fiddle in this "beer" when it comes to the booze and -rita. Probably the worst of the fruit varients.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Little biddy 8oz can picked up at some unknown peddler of filth and consumed in our appartment in Upper Kanapali, Maui, 26/04/14.
Hazy flamingo pink with very thinly applied off white spotting and edgework.
Nose is sweet, strawberry chews, fruit syrup, pink berry fruit.
Taste comprises strawberry syrup, so fucking sweet - urgh, artificial berry fructis.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet syrupy close.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
8 fl oz can. Pours a hazy red colour with a very thin white head. Aroma is strawberry syrup. Flavour is strawberry syrup, sugar and lime. Light body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Way to sweet for my liking.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
8 oz can. Aroma of lime, strawberry and fruit. Taste of strawbeery, lime and has a tart finish. More of a soda pop than a beer. Not for me

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 14079-BK10. Red pour. Is this a beer or a Tropicana Twister? Quick eruption of white fizzy head. Gone in a flash. Strawberries and lime juice inhabit the aroma. No malt or hop character to speak of. The body is light and refreshing. OK, I’ll give it that. It is supposed to be that way. As for the taste...it is like drinking a wine cooler or an Ocean Spray fruit drink. I will say that the 8% ABV is definitely well-masked and will creep up on you with a vengeance. Otherwise I am prone to ask - "Why does this beer even exist?"

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours hazy pink with no head. Aroma is of artificial lime, sugar, artificial berrie flavors. Taste is of artificial strawberrie, sugar, lime, alcohol. Palate: Light-medium body. Very low carbonation.Sticky mouthfeel. Overall: Not too good. Very artificial. Not really drinkable. Drain pour indeed.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Hazy pink highlighter juice pour with no head, but a soda-like effervescence. Strawberry Jolly Rancher, old dried up limes and gut rot booze in the aroma. Strawberries and Windex for the flavor, with a big punch of cheap grain alcohol toward the finish. Light, syrupy body with tons of booziness and a general feeling of nasty industrial solvents evaporating out of your mouth when it’s open. Nasty, I think this is my lowest rating ever. It literally tastes like I should be cleaning bug guts and bird crap off of my windshield with it.

This was inflected on at an esbls tasting. This is really not very good. It i too sweet and the alcohol does this no favors. I guess somebody must like this. Not me.
