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.

Bottle: Cloudy amber with a short beige head. Strawberry, cream aroma. Taste is sweet, sugary strawberry, sweet bread, sugar.... Scent and flavor are remarkably close to exactly replicating a real strawberry shortcake.

4 oz draft at Cappy’s. Drawn in because of the cutesy name. Gold-ish pour. Creamy and over the top sweet strawberry syrup flavor. Gotta stop there -- hard to drink, couldn’t finish 2 oz.

This has a sort of impressively over-the-top malt character to it. It surprisingly has more toasty malt taste than it does strawberry. It is fresh and pretty nice tasting but just a bit too much overall.

355ml bottle. Thought i rated this a while ago. Anyways its a sweetish beer with an over-the-top toasted malt character which makes it pretty cloying.

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 1. The pour is a darker ruby color with a nice white bubbly head and a decent lace. The aroma is actually pretty good. There is a strong strawberry jam to go with a heavier biscuit tendency. Not the good angel food cake that I was hoping for, but it's surprisingly good. No real lactose is picked up. Just strawberry jam and biscuits. The flavor is decent, at first. The strawberry jam takes over pretty heavily. The biscuit and milk sugar aren't noticeable, however, there is a strong sweetness that throws everything off a little bit. It's like jammy water. The mouth feel is something else. It's thin and watery, but the carbonation falls off incredibly quickly. The aftertaste is layered. There is a decent jam at first, but then it moves to a sweetness, and then does some funky shit. It finishes overly sweet and almost like a spoiled milk. Not too bad, but there was a bit more hope for this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma of big strawberry jam, malt and sugar. Taste is sweet, malty with big strawberry flavor. Cool for what it is, just not for me.

Ambré rose. Nez intense de fraise sucré. Bouche: belle effervescence. Très sucré. Arôme de fraise intense. Gâteau vanillé. Onctueuse. Un vrai dessert aux fraises. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Undated bottle shared by Brian, thanks! 11/28/15.
Hazy auburn body has a fleeting beige head.
Smells like strawberry and raspberry jam. Smuckers-like, with toasted malt that dosent help the already acidic, punchy character. No alcohol or flaws, just very little beer, even for a fruit beer.
Heavy strawberry flavor is authentic, actually somewhat tart, and much better than the nose lets on. Light carb, a soft but lightly spritzy texture. Light buttercream and honey. Jammy, a bit sweet and good fruit flavor but still too sweet.

12 oz. can shared by Willrunforbeer. Dirty Amber color, no head. Aroma is fake strawberry with sugar.

Flavor is overly artificial strawberry. Fo me it comes of so artificial, it nearly makes me sick. Maybe it is real fruit but I can’t hang with it. Overly sugary... Not easy for me to drink.
