Covington Brewhouse Strawberry Ale has a thin, fizzy white head and a hazy, yellow-golden appearance, with juice pulp present throughout. Lacing is thin. There are lots of little, tight bubble streams with this one. Aroma is of bready, strawberry juice, and the flavor is the same, with a sugar background and a citrus acidity. No bitterness is detected. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Covington Brewhouse Strawberry Ale finishes mostly dry, somewhat crisp, sweet, and fairly refreshing. Overall, for a fruit beer, itís very good. RJT

Pours a clear yellow from the bottle with pillowy white head and light lacing. Aroma is barley and strawberry cough drops, taste follows, medicinal but easy to drink. What is the abv, anyone?

This isnít too bad for a light fruit beer. The strawberry is the dominant flavor. Its a little medicinal and candy-like, but at least its not too powerful. If it were even more subtle, I would even consider this a session beer. As it is, its flavor is a bit too off-putting for more than one in a row.

Oh wow this is tart badness. Just tart strawberry? No. Tart strawberry leaves. Smell and all. Nasty.

Bottle... Pours murky and golden with thousands of small, white yeasties floating around. No head. The nose is muffled, but Iím able to extract notes of grist and mildly acidic apricot. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and nearly-expired carbonation. The flavor is slightly tart, providing notes of apricot and wheat. Finishes tangy, but thin. Certainly thirst quenching, but thereís no strawberry here at all.

From notes - sample pour - pours opaque/off-white w/ hints and traces of pink strawberry remnants. Nose is of fresh strawberries and strawberry jam, maybe floral notes. Tasted of cream and light fruit sweetness with strawberries. Lighter in body.

When we had this beer on draught, we thought it tasted exactly like the cereal Trix. When we bought it bottled, it was water-y yet too sweet. It was not pleasant to drink out of the bottle. The most redeeming quality is that it pours pink, which is interesting and unexpected.

12oz twist-off bottle. Cloudy golden color. White fizzy head of big bubbles. Loads of floaties. Aroma of pale malt and strawberry puree. Taste of pale malt, light strawberries, not overly sweet as most fruit beers can be. Finishes like Frankenberry Cereal, without the sugar. Simple, but still turned off by those floaties.(3331)

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, very pale yellow with a medium-sized, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is vaguely strawberry, kinda grainy. Flavor is mild strawberry, some malt. Points for subtle strawberry flavor. Light mouthfeel, as is appropriate. Drinkable; not a whole lot of flavor.
