2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nose of strawberries and yeast. Pours a clover honey amber sparkling. The mostly lasting off white creamy head is frothy and leaves minimal lace. The brew has a sweet front, highly acidic middle and a tart finish - much like sweet tarts candy. The light body is lively with a cloying metallic finish.
Bottle, 500ml at The Three Goats Heads, Oxford. Pinkish amber with white head. There is certainly a strawberry aroma to this, fresh and fruity, the beer itself is quite sweet with a strawberry parfait type flavour. A little sticky. Not really my thing.

355 ml bottle. Pours with a cloudy, deep golden color and a nice white head. Heavy strwaberry nose, sweet, sloghtly bready with just a few malts. Taste is medium sweet and dominated by strawberry flavors, astonishingly not too artifical. Almost no hops. Medium body. drpimento (3801) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Fairly decent strawberry ale. Since it's fairly simple and straightforward strawberry I don't know that I could drink a lot of it but it's not bad. Natural flavors a little bit of funk in there and the beer cast to it help a lot. Decent body and finishes like flavor which is fairly long. timesetter (2) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2017 does not count
When I picked this up, I was hoping it would be almost exactly what it is... a strawberry ale. I was immediately struck by the scent of fresh strawberries when I popped the cap. About 30 minutes in the fridge and it was perfectly chilled. Nicely carbonated. It was a little sweeter than I hoped for, but that is not to say that it wasn't delicious. I was hoping for a strawberry beer, and that's what this is. Thank you Samuel Smith.

It’s a bit tingling when you drink, very fruity in the beginning, but with a bitter non-fruity ending - expected more
550 ml. bottle. Pours a medium short lived, foamy white head, over a slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body.......nose is heavy sweet strawberry, mild malts with bread, toast tones, no hops.......taste is strawberry, moderate sweet malt tones with light bread, cracker, finishing moderately sweet, no hop tones.....mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with light acid. This is a heavily strawberry dominated beer, that with the lighter malts and hops is approaching a soda type aroma and taste. It is light and refreshing for the summer time of year.

Fantastic summer beer. Same ol Sam Smith you can't go wrong. A full strawberry flavor but not overbearing. Light ale.
