Overall, I found this to be a pleasant enough drink, and I'm more than glad to finish the 6 pack. But, if you hadn't told me it was a strawberry beer, I'm not sure I'd have realised it was- it's very subtle. I'm not saying that I'd like it to taste like strawberry syrup, but if something's gonna call itself "Carolina Strawberry," I'd expect the berry taste to be somewhat more prominent than it is in this beer.

The thin wispy head fizzles into an inch of foam and quickly dies. The lightly-colored golden body is tinted a slight pink, with visible particles of swimming sediment. The nose is a cross between strawberry jam and muscadine wine with a touch of cherry blossom. Beyond a slightly malty finish, the taste of this brew has almost no redeeming qualities. It is quite reminiscent of watered-down carbonated strawberry iced-tea, and I've had iced teas that had a fuller mouth feel than this ale.

I've thought of something that might salvage the experience, though. This would contrast very well with cheese cake. On its own, however, I can't recommend it.
