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.”

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow color with a small fizzy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is a mix of pale malt and strawberry puree. The taste seems like an odd mix of a pale lager and strawberries. Some lemony citrus notes show up in the finish too. The strawberry flavor is slightly artificial, but not too bad. Overall, its not terrible but I won’t drink this again. Many better fruit beers out there.

jgb9348 (4783) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Crisp copper and orange coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall thick white head with a nice orange glow. Aroma of pure strawberries, sugar, wheat, malt, raspberries and more icing sugar - amazing smell. Medium-bodied; Assertive strawberry flavour at first coupled with the strong malty taste and a hint of alcohol and wheat notes. Medium-bodied; Very nice and super pungent strawberry flavour - straight from a farm, amazingly sweet and flavourful. Aftertaste shows a good malt backbone, some hints of alcohol, sugars, grass and a bit of artificial strawberry notes. Overall, a very nice and strong beer with super pungent strawberry flavours, but they all work well and show off extremely nice relative to the style and depth of the beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Sterling, Virginia on 03-May-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 14-June-2013.

Rating from 6/10/13. 12 oz bottle from the mixed sixer. Pours slightly hazy gold with particles floating around under a nice white head with great retention; leaves some lace. Smells like strawberry wafers. Taste is sweet, a little tart, finishing dry and a little bitter. Nice strawberry flavor and aroma. Palate is fairly thin, watery. Showed some promise but it’s a little too watery.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Strong strawberry aroma with a touch of honey. Taste reminds me of strawberry fresca. Easy drinking, best of three longshot beers.

adnielsen (9287) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle in KC, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with an off white head. Honestly, this really smells like really fresh strawberry or strawberry crisp. Smells exactly like fresh strawberries. Very nice. A bit citrusy, wheat malty, strawberry dessert flavor. Strawberry? yes. Lager? huh? Probably an 8.5/10.0 on a beer bongable scale.

Better than expected, for a strawberry beer. I don’t feel that it needed the extra punch that they added after brewing. It brings the fruit up a notch or two, sure, but it makes me glad that I only had two bottles of it in the pack.

It's a clean tasting beer with a strong aroma and taste of strawberry jam. No hops at all and with a mild malt. Clean and ideal for summer days ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden body, thin white head, spotty lacing. Strawberry jolly ranchers, not much else. Medium to light bodied, semi sweet. Not quite beer.
