The first of this years winners, Dave Anderson, works in the packaging department at Sam Adams. His submission, a Strawberry Lager, is described as a bright and fresh wheat beer, with a strong strawberry character balanced with toffee and citrus notes the brewers vision of the perfect summertime beer to enjoy after a round of golf on a hot day. Brewed with fresh strawberries, this beer pours a bright golden color and imparts a malty sweetness with hints of lemon and earthiness. Strawberry Lager finishes with a wonderful intensive strawberry flavor without being overwhelming and leaves a lingering creamy sweetness on the palate.

jehoesefat (366) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours clear yellow with sediment resting within. Smells like sliced strawberries. Taste is a mixture of sweet and sour, and finishes with the strawberry flavor coming out, unfortunately it really seems to dry my mouth out after each sip. Not something I could drink a whole lot of, its too much like a wine cooler!

Finhead (1729) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Hazy, pale yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is dominated by strawberry, but there is some light wheat to be found as well. It has a light body with a slightly thin body and average carbonation. The taste is sweet and fruity with a dry finish. This is a pretty decent warm weather brew.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Clear almost bright golden yellow with ring of near white head. Nose has the fake candy strawberry (the ones in the strawberry wrapper) notes, but it doesnt come off as too fake. The flavor is more refined on the strawberry and more like a corn/wheat mix and a little perfumy. This is one of the few strawberry beers that Ive actually been able to tolerate. But its still not something Id look to have again. Better than the hardywood strawberry, thats for sure.

odinstyr (786) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Smells of strawberry!, lemon, malty bread. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter - candy strawberries, malty sweetness - like fruit Whoppers - almost like a bad kids cereal.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold.with a small white head. The nose smells like strawberry candy with slight floral notes. There is a mix of pleasant graininess and strawberry candy. A bit fruity for my taste, but well made. Nice crisp finish. Unfortunately the strawberry and the beer seem to be clashing instead of working together. A touch artificial perhaps.

nuplastikk (6141) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2013
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-tan, lots of what I would assume to be strawberry floaties. Big sweet candy strawberry flavor. A pretty tasty beverage, but leans into the almost artificial strawberry tones instead of going for a sublime, malty, balanced offering. Probably pretty tasty in its original form. OK.

dwyerpg (6013) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2013
Smells like strawberry shortcake and syrup. I really didnt enjoy this. Tons of strawberry that almost gives it a Jolly Rancher character, which is strange given its all fresh strawberries. Just couldnt stand it though.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle. Straw body with sediment, thin tight off-white head. Nose of strawberry pure and biscuit. The effect of the strawberry is a bit different in the body, where it adds a tannic, tart element to the otherwise light biscuity, grassy body. Not very sweet. Bland and a bit off-putting.

thegreenrooster (4328) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pour is a clear yellow with an average whtie head. Aroma is of nice fresh strawberries. So much so it makes me think there is someting artificial about it. Flavor is strawberry and some sweetness that brings things down a bit. Finish leaves a strawberry sweetness on the tounge. Its ok if you like strawberries. There are tons of things floating in this. This would be a beer my mom would like.
