From a can.

Perfume and sweet apples on the nose

No head, no film, no collar, no lace

Tastes like apple juice with some strawberries mixed in. Barely beer, waste of good water. Pass it by. I snared a can at a party to bring home, glad I did not pay any $ for this.

No foam head at head.

Light Pale Color.

It's way to sweet for my taste, sugary sweet with sour aftertaste. Also this beer is way carbonated like a pop drink. Taste more like cider than a Ale beer.

Had a hard time to finishing this beer. Won't drink again and won't recommend.

12 oz clear bottle into a snifter. Best before May 05 14

Pours a crystal clear super light golden yellow color. White head fizzed away instantly after the pour leaving absolutely nothing.

An apple cidery aroma with mostly strawberry. Fake candy green apple. Very artificial and very sweet smelling. Almost medicinal.

The taste is pretty much all sweet sugary artificial strawberry. Very watery. This is a beer?

Super light in body, very watery.

This is like a straight up wine cooler, I don't know how they get off calling this a beer. Too sugary, too fake tasting.

I can't say this beer doesn't look the way I expect It to, and similar to the apple version: like carbonated apple juice. There's about five seconds of fizzy white head that spritzes like a soda and drops off completely. Little spotting is left but, hey, it's there.
Strawberry is there, kind of like those wrapped candies that always somehow got out of the wrapper and stuck to the bottom on the inside and got sticky pick stuff all over your fingers when you finally pulled it out covered with white fuzz. There's also a pressed cider/apple aspect, and I wonder if, like juice blends, this beer utilizes some of the original apple. It's sweet with a little dusty malt, and I think maybe some caramel malts were used as a hint comes out on the tongue. This will satisfy the crowd who likes wine coolers but wants to look cool by drinking a beer. To borrow a more recent colloquialism, it's alcopop.
The feel isn't too bad. It's thin, to be sure, but not too watery, and the crispness keeps things going. It could be cleaner on the end, but it's not too grainy and, fortunately, not sticky.

Redd's Strawberry Ale brewed by Miller Brewing Co. This brew pours out a dark amber color with a thin white head. The head of this brew goes away fast. The appearance is that of an American style lager. There is not a lot of carbonation to this brew. Redd's Strawberry Ale appearance is decent. The smell is a strong with strawberry and that is it not hops or anything. Not too big on the smell; it's like cheap strawberry candy or Kool Aid. The taste is really strawberry, but it is smooth with a clean finish. Mouth feel is nice nothing bad but it dose has a strawberry after taste. This is a good brew to change it up from other brews on the market. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3.25 out of 5. I would but this brew again. This brew is not something I can drink on all night but it a good brew.

I purchased this for my wife and after one sip she said it was too sweet, imagine that. So I tried to drink the rest but found the artificial strawberry flavor is so cloying that it made this impossible to finish. The sugary feel is thick and coats the mouth with a slime that gets you nearly choked. The Apple Ale delivered a much smoother, almost cider like feel and flavor but this is artificial and sickly sweet.
