COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first of this year’s winners, Dave Anderson, works in the packaging department at Sam Adams. His submission, a Strawberry Lager, is described as “a bright and fresh wheat beer, with a strong strawberry character balanced with toffee and citrus notes – the brewer’s vision of the perfect summertime beer to enjoy after a round of golf on a hot day. Brewed with fresh strawberries, this beer pours a bright golden color and imparts a malty sweetness with hints of lemon and earthiness. Strawberry Lager finishes with a wonderful intensive strawberry flavor without being overwhelming and leaves a lingering creamy sweetness on the palate.”

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweetish strawberry, with a light wheaty base, and just a hint of citrus. A tad on the artificial side, but decent nonetheless.

thornecb (4293) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours gold into a Sam glass. Bright white micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving thin sheets. Strawberry jam aromas. Medium bodied with sweet strawberries upfront turning to mild crushed seeds in the medium length finish.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
6300th rating! 12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a large white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big strawberry notes, some earthiness, citrus and pale malts. The taste is candied strawberries and faint pale malts. Thin-medium bodied. Meh.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Strawberry malt aroma. Medium with large head. Lightly sweet lemon and strawberry malt and hay flavor. Really not too bad - should replace Cherry Wheat with this.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
EtTuCthulhu (992) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2013
The appearance of this beer is clear amber with an abundance of fine sediment, which makes the beer hazy overall, and with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma hits you boldly on nose without overpowering you and smells somewhere between strawberry soda and stewed strawberries, and the taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, much like a raw strawberry, which is quite pleasing; however, the palate isn’t exciting or fitting because the medium body feels out of place with the lively carbonation, sticky texture, and abrupt finish that call for a much lighter beer, especially because this is a lager.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at Andy’s. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells of strawberries right away, a touch of graininess as well. Crisp and toasty with a lot of sweet strawberry. Medium bodied, a bit sweet but a lot of crisp grain. Decent enough. Does come across tasting rather artificial.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle shared with RB crew. Pours clear gold with large white head. Aroma of strawberry candy, like Bubbalicious strawberry gum. Super sweet and very fake strawberry aroma. Taste is incredibly bland, there’s nothing going on here.

wlajwl (3746) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 4, 2013
Aroma is strawberries and sweetness, close to strawberry shortcake. The flavor is strawberry shortcake, pulpy texture and a mildly sweet finish.
