COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This product is a malt beverage with natural flavors added. Real strawberry puree is infused into our classic Cream Ale to produce the unique flavor of our Strawberry Ale, hence a hint of strawberry sediment is to be expected in each bottle. Editorís note: Same as Heiner Brau Strawberry?

FROM NOTES: June 27, í12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Aroma: Strong over-powering strawberry nose with little else. Appearance: Pours a cloudy, very pale yellow with a medium-sized, quickly dissipating white head. Taste: As advertised, strawberry dominated, but lacking depth. Palate: Light bodied with a soft, almost creamy texture to it and soft fizzy carbonation. Overall: Fruit beers are not my thing, so a little difficult to rate overall, but I would say that itís not exceptional in any area.

Very light, non-existent head. The aroma is one that is more sour than the fruit smell of strawberry. The tastes follows suit with a sour taste, more so than strawberry. Is there such thing as a strawberry Budweiser?

12 oz bottle. (Marcelloís Wine Market) Lafayette, LA.
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a tiny white head. Strawberry pie in the aroma. Nothing else really. The flavour sweet caramel and maybe a hint of strawberry. The aroma changes a bit with the sediment added... itís a bit more tart. Quite bad brew. Watery.

The cap easily came off, almost like it wasnít sealed. Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strawberry and grain notes. The flavor is pretty bad with some rotten strawberry notes as well as some grain. Medium mouthfeel and no carbonation - the beer was completely flat.

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

jbruner (3827) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
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.
