3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, pours like a golden pale lager. Aroma heavy on the strawberries, taste is of the same. Generic tasting strawberry flavor that overtakes the beer, even drowned out the ginger. light to medium body, average carbonation, thick feel of strawberries, cloying taste. Overall, drinkable, decent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is super sugary and sweet. Lightly tart with a strawberry sour candy sort of thing going on. A bit of grass, straw, and malt sweetness. Certainly tastes like a sour strawberry candy. Some sugar, a bit of malt, grass, and a little bit of spicy ginger.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up honey, toasted grains, artificially-sweetened strawberries, and ginger.. not a whole lot interesting or enticing going on, but it wasn’t offensive. The flavor found light bready notes, honey, and grainy malts at the core, with tacky, mostly sweet strawberries around.. finished tacky and dry, picking up a hit of ginger. Lighter-bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. sweeter than I wanted.. meh.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light orange with just a slight haze to it, not much of a head. Aroma has some strong ginger notes, just a hint of strawberry. Flavor is a nice melding of the strawberry and ginger initially. After a while it turns a bit cloying and artificial. Back end has a bit of a minty flourish to it. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

Pours yelow gold with a white head that leaves no sheeting and quickly dissipates. Nose is faint strawberrys. Palate is medium -light body with slight bitterness and unaweetened ginger. Got it at a bsargain given it’s October.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a thin, short lived white head, over a clear light gold (SRM 4) body....nose is cereal, light strawberry, light metallic hints.....taste is cereal, strawberry, ginger, finishing with an odd off bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This is a simple, uninteresting beer, which has the additional problem of not tasting particularly good. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
So there are only 14 ratings and its from california, what gives? From a bottle it smells like mild strawberries. Looks like any other pale lager but perhaps a little more golden. Yes, a little like wheat ale with a tad of strawberry in there. Not sweet by any means. Taste becomes a little artificial at times, maybe even cloying. Strawberry flavor distract from the alky impact. Finish is a little fruity & medicinal at times, but not in a real bad way. There you have it.

Beer infused strawberry juice. Couldn’t detect the ginger. Decent if you’re into the style.

Didn’t like this one. It was funky and had ginger flavor, that overpowered everything on the tongue and aroma. Nasty, too much ginger. ehh
