2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium golden with a well-retained, sticky white head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet strawberries, cream, and a little vanilla.. fresh berry seeds right on the back of the nose.. no complaints. The flavor found dank, tacky strawberry seeds throughout.. light pale and biscuity malt supported.. finished with sharp seeds and a touch of lemon zest.. I didn’t enjoy the way this moved through the mouth. Lighter-bodied, tart, and scratchy on the palate.. drinkable, but not very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Huge white head atop a golden pour. Nose is fresh strawberries... nice. The fruitiness tries to hold its own in the taste, but the malt and grass wins in the end. Finishes really well as all three crisply converge. Not bad at all; I think this hits the intended mark.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color slight cloudy appearance with minimal head. It is as advertised a lager that taste and smells like strawberry. Well balanced and not overpowering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours straw with some solids in it. White head. Big surprise here, nose of strawberry. Sweet. Again, a large aroma surprise (sweet strawberry). Good, but not much else aroma.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very clean, pale yellow color with a modest white head. Aroma of strawberries hits the nose instantly, think a faint frankenberry note, with some light pale malt. Flavor has a good amount of strawberry but I feel its not overdone and fits well for the beer. Not many other flavors come through besides the strawberry and light grainy flavors. Body is light, modest carbonation and crisp finish. Overall not too bad. It’s a tad bit too sweet for an everyday beer but I could see this being a good one on a really warm day. Only complaint would be to carbonate this a little more. I think a sharper carbonation rate would do wonders for the brew.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy gold with a soapy, short-lived head - tons of tiny floaties - doesn’t exactly look appealing - nose has a lot of strawberry character (natural, not artificial smelling), acidity, metallic/copper notes - low carbonation, kind of a slick mouthfeel - flavor is quite sharply acidic, perhaps as a byproduct of the fruit, as it’s flavor is fairly strong here - kind of a doughy yeast flavor - slight diacetyl in the finish - acidic and weird .throughout - they went for something different and wound up with something that mostly comes across tasting like an infected lager (although I do not believe there is an actual infection).

12oz bottle 5/2/13 Longshot Six Pack (Binny’s Naperville)-44° in Shaker-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of strawberry, tart, and lemon. Taste of the same with more strawberry and a little wheat. This light bodied brew is not bad and would be a great golf or lawnmower brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Lager glass shows me a clear gold with ample carbonation. Yes it smells exclusively like strawberries. Yes it tastes like Strawberries. It even looks like yeast and pices of berries are floating around in it. After I had 4 oz. of this I had had enough. Pass this to your wife or Girlfriend because I highly doubt any true connoisseur is going to want this.

Bottle from Canals. Not much I can say that hasn’t already been said. Bold aromas and flavor of tart strawberry with a splash of lemon.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear yellow with sediment resting within. Smells like sliced strawberries. Taste is a mixture of sweet and sour, and finishes with the strawberry flavor coming out, unfortunately it really seems to dry my mouth out after each sip. Not something I could drink a whole lot of, it’s too much like a wine cooler!
