Strawberry Short’s Cake is a golden ale. The addition of strawberries and milk sugar transform this beer into a rose colored nectar that has hints of cream and is pleasingly sweet. Biscuit flavors and aromas arise from the great amounts of Victory malt used in the brewing process.

12oz bottle pours a murky amber/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of English toffee caramel malt and mild strawberry jam. Taste similar to aroma, big sweet earthy English malts, veggies, astringent bitterness throughout, and sweet sugary strawberry. Off flavors, nothing really comes together as pleasent here for me.

Pours gold with very little head. Aroma is of strawberry and bread. Taste is mildly sweet with a sourish strawberry flavor.

12oz bottle thanks to mtomlins / little matt. Murky orange with an off white head that mostly fades. Good lord that is an amazing shortcake snoof...not sure its beer but it smells damn great; wish it was a little less sweet though, lots of strawberry with some artificial flavour, moderate carbonation, mild body, some aspertame, bit of shortbread, can’t believe its in a bottle instead of on a plate.

This beer does not taste like strawberry short cake to me. I can barely taste strawberry if at all but I would consider drinking this again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a murky rose-amber. Smells like a desert; "cake-y", milk sugar, some fruit. Tastes of cake, muddy strawberry, milk sugar; the flavors aren’t bright. Rather odd.

12oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours golden amber. Transparent. Aroma is strawberry forward. A little artificial smelling. Very sweet. Taste is sweet. Body is medium. Short finish. Interesting, but wouldn’t need to drink a lot of this.

Bottle: Ominous red color, not quite dark enough for "ruby" or "crimson" yet. Slightly orange tinted, too. Mild haze with an off-white soapy film on top. Strawberry juice aroma, very fruity & backed with a residual sugary sweetness. Hint of bready malts as well. Flavor is a bit more complex. Notes of strawberry purée, milky lactose sweetness, under baked bread & biscuits. The malts give off a doughy vibe while the strawberries mix with the lactose to actually give the impression of a strawberry short cake. Residual strawberry finish with lingering notes of whipped cream & granulated sugar. Sweet.... Very sweet. But definitely a fun one to drink.

Aroma is strawberries, shortcake, not as light as I expected. Color is strawberry juice, offwhite head. Taste is strawberry shortcake, some wheat, could be heavier but I’m not upset. Mouthfeel is decent, like watery jelly, but real light on the aftertaste. Overall, pretty tasty stuff.

Bottle share last night at a friend’s house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi - clear soft orange to yellow color with a slim white one finger foamy to bubbly head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. There was barely any lacing at all. The smell - well it smelled exactly like strawberry shortcake. I mean it’s all there - strawberry over top of bready like sweet cake goodness. The taste was there. Sweet strawberry over the sweet breadiness of shortcake amplifies a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was smooth and sweet as it ran over my mouth. Overall, Short’s did exactly what they chose to do everything is there and authentic. I commend them for trying something new to at least me, but I’m unsure if I would have another go around at this one.

Bottle at home. Pours brown with maybe a slight pinkish hue. Thin off white head. Flavor is caramel with strawberry jam. Slight bitterness. Curious beer. I couldn't drink mor than one of these. Very sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
