look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.
