I am willing to admit publicly that I tried this. It was from my wife’s tallboy. Red with strawberry everything. Almost pulpy. If chicks like it then it has strategic value. Not much beer value, though.

24 oz can to pint (split with the wife and served over 4 iced cubes). Pours an artificial strawberry with pink head that dissipates quickly. Smells of strawberry and triple sec. Tastes like it smells, only way too sweet, with a syrupy mouthfeel. This may be tolerable if you pureed it with ice, but as it stands, it’s undrinkable.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours a red/pink fizzy, no head. Sweet artificial strawberry flavoring, a bit of lime, nasty chemical flavoring, and cheap malt liquor booze. Blech pretty bad.

Tall boy, Shell Station. Misty, bright coral colored, next to no head. Bad can. Smells like Tahitian Treat. An interesting flavor, relative to the smell -- very sweet, a little saline, a little musky, some cactus/veggie notes. Warming. Clingy, syrupy body with a strawberry jam aftertaste. I’m not sure where the line is between beer and shandy and alcopop, but this is swerving near it.

Pinkish red with a fizzy carbonation like soda. Smells like Budweisers version of strawberry artificial flavoring. Tastes of the same with light artificial strawberry flavoring with a hint if light lime and a touch of margarita mixer. Honestly, the non-strawberry version is way better. This is like Bud Light’s flavored wine cooler.

Can. Pours a decent ruby red with a nose of Big Red and booze. Flavor is strawberry booze with a finish of sweet syrup. Average mouthfeel. Meh. Too sweet.

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 doesn’t taste bad. It just isn’t beer.
