COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipated. Aroma is strawberry, hay, acid, cereal. Mouthfeel is nice with lighter body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a clean finish. Overall this is an impressive brew! Strawberries are quite difficult to brew with and this one is really nice.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Smells like ass and pound cake. Light strawberry tartness and tang with wheat and toast and a bit of milk sugar. I had both the 2013 and 2014 bottles. Both had a sort of metallic/iron/blood aftertaste, but only on some of the sips, which was weird.

Strawberry sweetness, giving easy to flavors of grains and cake. Slight funk but nice and sweet. Couldn’t have a lot of this one but good for variety.

Bottle to pint, nice looking medium reddish amber. Sweet aroma, strawberries, bread and milk. Taste matches, pretty sweet. They hit the nail on the head with this one.

Tap. Sort of a golden-amber. Bit of head. Smells vaguely of strawberries. Solid mouthfeel. Tastes of real strawberries, bit of breadiness. Definitely tastes like its name, and without being too sweet!

Aroma is vanilla and stawberrys... taste is similar, very sweet with a little funk on the end. A pretty good fruit beer, would like to try a fresh brew.

Bottle (12 oz). Extra from Mark, thanks! Slightly hazy copper/reddish brown with a small beige head and no lacing. Aroma of strawberries, vanilla, light rotten notes and sugar. Taste is moderately sweet with strawberries, vanilla and sugar. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Kind of creamy mouthfeel. The beer fits the description, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good beer. Too sugary and the strawberries, while being really present, aren’t bright like some other strawberry beers (those who come to my mind are Upland Strawberry Lambic or Hanssens Oudbeitje, though it’s not the same style of beer).

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma of strawberries, light lactose, some light spices, pale and light caramel malts, and hints of hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A decent and interesting fruit beer.

Bottle, thanks Mike! Pours a light copper color with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a slightly tart strawberry milk. Taste is weird. Strawberries obviously but not fresh juicy strawberries, more like overripe, tart, dry ones. Not as sweet as I expected either. Kinda disappointed with this one.

12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Very nice strawberry and creme aroma. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Yogurty, light lactose flavors. More dry finish. Moderate sweet, light tart taste. Finishes dry, which is nice. Flavor is spot-on for a strawberry shortcake beer, pretty impressive, really. Awesome stuff.
