Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent amber with no head. Aroma is mixed ginger and strawberry. Med body. A bit fizzy. Flavor is clearly strawberry - almost fresh - followed by some nice mildly spicy ginger. The malt is subdued. Very refreshing beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid post-Centrum vitamin urine yellow with minimal off-white head and heavy carbonation; less than a fingernail of head here. Nose is ginger and strawberry up-front, , mild hops and pale malt. Tastes watery, with notes of strawberry, ginger, mild hops and malt, and not much flavor in the finish. I can see the sorority crowd liking this, but it does not merit a high score in the ratebeer scoring system.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, screw-top. Somewhat vomit-inducing nose, sweet and fruity with herbal and medicinal notes, some vomit in itself and ginger. Sickly cloudy pale orange body with a hissing off-white head. Taste isn’t that bad, though, the strawberry is slightly muted at first but does manage to really get its hooks in, ginger is a little more subtle but actually adds something (but that something is not heat). Malt is very light and delicate, soft as wheat. Not all that sweet, but not all that clean, either. Medium-full body, does the job!

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Smells like bile.... I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to drink this one. I’m a mom who raised two boys, and I learned to handle mud, worms, blood, poop, and some other gross things, but I never learned to handle vomit. My husband always had to handle that particular clean up duty. Slightly hazy honey gold with a small off-white head. Thanks to the smell I was only able to handle a few sips which were sour-bile-maybe strawberry flavor. All I could think about was the time when one of the boys was in jr. high and threw up his strawberry oatmeal after running a cross country meet. I tried to be objective, but this was obviously impossible and a drain pour for me.
