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.

PorterPounder (5647) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2012
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.

drjay44 (2702) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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

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

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle:   Straw colored, moderate frothy white head, lively carbonation.   Soft artificial strawberry on the nose.   Has a touch of sweet lemon, almost medicinal like a urinal cake.   Soft lemony strawberry on the tongue, mild sweetness, a little mealy.   Very artificial.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Mealy finish, faint fruitiness lingers.   Very average.
