3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Why is this beer rated SOOOO poorly, I wonder, when it is claimed from the beginning that it is a fruit beer? What do you expect? It is cloudy and it looks to have real fruit infused into it. THe head doesn’t last, but the aroma is pleasantly strawberry - sweet, but also tart. Refreshing beverage - similar to what a "wine cooler" is to wine. I imagine I will come back to this one in warmer weather, sitting outside enjoying heat with this as an apertif of some sort.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy pinkish orange with a couple of bubbles sticking to the side of the glass - aroma of sweet strawberry syrup and lemon rind - kind of tastes like these fruity malt beverages that are so popular these days, only one that has gone slightly sour - the flavor seems pretty natural, though - pretty refreshing, just not something I think I’d try again.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Densely cloudy, dirty pink. Fizzy effervescent head, gone before you know it. Smells like a strawberry cooler, tastes like a strawberry cooler-- sickly sweet. Not one I would come back to.

Even with an agressive pour I only got a tiny head that quickly subsided. Looks cloudy brown with a hint of red. Strong strawberry aroma. Bubbly texture with a natural strawberry flavour, sweet but not too sweet.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yikes. This looks like a mixed cocktail drink - opaque pink color. Heavy sweet overbearing strawberry tastes. Unbeer. Really quick a poor showing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap - Southwark Tavern Borough London. Oh my God!! A dirty muddy pink coloured beer which looks like a fruit smoothie with a white beery head. The aroma is like strawberry milkshake, with the strawberry pips and ice cream. In fact it is like a Strawberry mivvi. The taste is syrupy strawberry fruit and more milk shake, but somewhere in there is a hint of something not unlike beer. Dodgy.

Actually smells and lookspretty good. Amazingly, tastes pretty much like strawberries too. Question is, why make a beer that tastes like strawberry fruit juice if people don’t actually drink (or make for that matter) strawberry fruit juice. I bet beer-hating girls would love this though.
