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.

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.

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.

can. Red with small head. Strawberry alco-pop. Tastes just like a strawberry margarita, which is to say there’s nothing beer-like about it.

Can, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a bright red and looks much like strawberry soda.
The aroma is most defiantly sweet with lots of lime and artificial strawberry. It’s not an unpleasant smell by a long shot.
The flavor is really actually fairly pleasant, I mean it tastes like a strawberry lime-aide soda... but like a pretty good version of that sort of soda. The alcohol is noticeable, but nowhere near the 8% range. Mild salty and beer like flavors are present but fairly muted and come out a little more as it warms.
One of my earliest memories as a kid was walking with my mom to the grocery store with a freshly skinned knee and a can of strawberry soda. The strawberry soda cheered me up. I was no older than 4 when this happened... close to, if not my daughters age.
It’s hard to shake something as hard wired as finding a rarely indulged in strawberry soda immeasurably pleasurable for close to 30 years. So this certainly does it for me as a beverage.

8 ounce can shared with drsilverworm. Pours a really bright pink with no head. The aroma is like Hi-C fruit punch. I get some tropicana orange juice as well. Sugary mouthfeel. High carbonation.

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.

This stuff is ridiculous and I am ashamed of myself. Fresh and zingy strawberry flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bright pink and hazy
Smells good like strawberry and cream
Sweet. Like flat soda. This is really good. This is improved with a vodka addition stirred with ice.
