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.

Bottle at bottle share at the Sybarite Pig in Boca. Small snifter. Pours an amber-red copper with a thin, pinkish white head. Well it smells like strawberry short cake. Strawberries, whipped cream, and vanilla. And it tasted like it. Not much explanation needed. They hit the nail on the head with the flavors. I found it too sweet but I guess a strawberry shortcake is sweet. Just not my type of desert.

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.

Bulk_Carrier (2266) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - NOV 1, 2014
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

Draft sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and company. Pours a light amber body with white lacing. Aroma is strawberries, fruit and grains. Mouthfeel is medium to soft with grain on the palate followed by fruit, sweet malt, bready character and light cream.

Strawberry Shorts Cake pours a deep orange with small bubbly beige heady that doesn’t last long. The aroma is strawberries and biscuits. The flavor is rather sweet with strawberries and biscuits. Overall this is a pretty accurate name for the beer, but the beer is pretty average.

chucklemation (563) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Has a pleasant sweet strawberry aroma. Flavor is also fruity, along with some bread and grass notes. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. That odd grassy taste hurts, otherwise this is very tasty.

Salmoniform (1000) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 21, 2014
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.
