3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. One of the new Foothills offerings that I havenít taken the opportunity to enjoy very often. I felt like a light refreshing ale tonight, so into the glass she goes!
Pours a pale gold that is transparent. A large frothy white head billows forth. I can tell already this one is packing some carbonation. Nice subtle strawberry aroma, lemon ice, with a dry sawdust-like scent on the back end.
Huge amounts of bubbles on the palate, this one is quite a scorcher for such a light "easy-drinking" ale. Tone that stuff down! Granted, I donít want a flat beer, but this is a little overkill. Creamy corn-like grains with a kiss of sweet strawberries. Thereís just a touch of tartness from the fruit on the finish, but it fleets away quickly.
A good beer. About what I expected. One I would get again, but maybe on tap. These bubbles are wearing on me.

12oz bottle - not a bad cream ale, and you actually do get hints of some strawberry.

Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a blonde color with white head. Refreshing, crisp, strawberry, malty, soda pop flavors. Not bad if you are looking for a fruity, lighter beer.

draft pour and this is their base cream ale with strawberries added to it..poured a pale orange color with white head. nice aroma of strawberry some may not like but I thought it was decent enough and you can definitely pick it up in the flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale yellow with hints of red, with a medium head, lots of lacing. The aromas are typical of cream ales - while the strawberry aromas are present, they are a bit subdued compared to many fruit beers. Effervescent, light on the palate, creamy and a bit sweet like a cream ale should be. Again, the strawberry is subdued. If youíre looking for a lot of strawberry flavor, then this isnít your beer. Agree with other raters that this seems like artificial flavoring. While drinking, it begins to taste stranger and a lit funky, almost like a diet soda or gum thatís been chewed for far too long.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours light orange with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is artificial strawberry, like strawberry Kool-Aid. Taste is grainy with the artificial strawberry flavoring. Light sweetness. Tart, dry finish. Not my kinda beer.

Tonight we discuss "slack". Iíd cut this beer some slack, but unfortunately, "slack" is exactly the term weíll use to describe its flavor.
