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.

Review taken from notes Vacation 2013 Emerald Isle, NC July 2nd.

12 oz brown bottle with very North Carolina Micro style. Bottle is red and green with a lighthouse in the artwork. Poured this into a standard American pint glass.

A - light golden with a pinkish hue. You almost know its strawberry before it even touches the nose. White head poured fairly well with a sudsy soap like appearance. Decent stick.

S - creamy malt aroma with some fruitiness. Not a whole lot going on, but its the best part of what this has to offer.

T - typical cream ale with soft hints of mellow fruitiness and a sweet strawberry note. Not tart, but just plain ol sweet flavor. Malt and fruit are really the only thing I run across with this. Almost tangy flavors.

M - not as thick as it should be. Crisp and refreshing and I suppose they are going for a warm weather ale which is fine. It has some sort of creamy texture but nothing thick or any sort of coating elements. Pretty clean mouthfeel and a refreshing finish.

O - definitely not a Beatles song as they do strawberry fields better than anyone and as this was inspired by NC's fields of strawberry I think they could have given a bit more with this offering. It really has roots to be great but simply lacks a bit of complexity and texture. Overall a good choice on a hot day sitting in the sand as I was, but not something ill be packing a bunch of back home.
