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.

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.
