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.”

12oz bottle. Clear straw body topped by small white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, fresh strawberry. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, light bread, lemon. Soft light body, light effervescence, quite drinkable. Pleasantly surprised by this one -- I could even see drinking it again.

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is quite strawberry - just a wee bit cooked, but fairly close to fresh. Med body. Flavor is strawberry, but it’s a lot more cooked than fresh. Pretty good job of getting clear strawberry flavor in a beer. Maybe a wee bit of breadiness in the finish. Guess it was always there.

Ratman197 (9550) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of bread, light strawberry and a hint oif citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread and light strawberry with a smooth finish. Drinkable but overall a pretty lame beer better suited to Inbud!

SirADNielsen (8949) - 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.

GT2 (8284) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
355mL thanks to womencantsail. Pours a clear, sparkling golden with medium white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is pretty intense strawberry popsicle. Taste is a bit sharp and prickly..decent sweet popsicle but the flavor is lost to regular honey and lemon. Palate is soapy, lemon, sugar. Not bad, but the bright strawberry is gone.

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.

Bottles from Frank Smith’s and Capone’s. Pours chill hazy dark straw with clingy off-white head. Nose is strawberry-Quik, hopcitrus, earthy lemongrass. Tastes tart, with notes of strawberry, almost a strawberry lambic-like tartness level, with some hopcitrus, semi-sweet malty honey sweetness at mid-palate, and a tart finish.
