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.

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.

Dark pink pour with no head. Smell AND taste are fake strawberry, unfortunately. That being said, I don’t hate fake strawberry flavoring so this is rated a bit better than that peach one.

Poured from bottle thanks Willrunforbeer and jason. Pours hazy strawberry brown with a thin white head. Aromas of strawberry and biscuit. Taste is spot on for what it is.

12oz bottle from trade. Thanks, Jason! Pours red orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is slightly sour strawberry and whipped cream. Flavor is what it is supposed to be.... A solid take on liquid strawberry short cake. Biscuit, strawberry, cream. Well done.

Atom (1914) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2015
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
