A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of natural strawberry, slightly sweet over the top of some grainy malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of grainy, cereal malts underneath some light natural strawberry flavors with just a hint of both sweetness and tartness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly prickly.

O: Pretty decent offering that combines nice natural fruit with a cream ale - I enjoyed it and think it would be a nice easy drinking summer beer (good for cooking out, maybe after the meal is served like a dessert).

I haven't had this in a few years. I was interested to see if change of ownership to Foothills made any difference.

A - Pale copper gold; huge white head that's thick and dense with great retention, there was a great deal of head that tried to escape the bottle the second the cap was lifted

S - faintly grainy, syrup-like strawberry aroma

T - cereal grains, strawbeery syrup, very sweet

M - crisp, highly carbonated, light to medium bodied

This has, in my opinion, never been a great beer. The change of ownership seems to have not made a difference. It seems it's quite the same recipe with the same artificial fruit aroma and flavor. I'll avoid in the future.

on tap at sams in Durham. into a pint glass.

pours a darker golden color with a half inch white head. pretty nice looking pour. smell is of faint fruits, strawberries. very pleasant. taste is a tad sweet with a good strawberry flavor on the back of the tongue. easy drinker. light body with mild carbonation. good feel.

overall an enjoyable summer beer that should probably be rated higher. i could drink this all day.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. One of the new Foothills offerings that I haven't taken the opportunity to enjoy very often. I felt like a light refreshing ale tonight, so into the glass she goes!

Pours a pale gold that is transparent. A large frothy white head billows forth. I can tell already this one is packing some carbonation. Nice subtle strawberry aroma, lemon ice, with a dry sawdust-like scent on the back end.

Huge amounts of bubbles on the palate, this one is quite a scorcher for such a light "easy-drinking" ale. Tone that stuff down! Granted, I don't want a flat beer, but this is a little overkill. Creamy corn-like grains with a kiss of sweet strawberries. There's just a touch of tartness from the fruit on the finish, but it fleets away quickly.

A good beer. About what I expected. One I would get again, but maybe on tap. These bubbles are wearing on me.

Looks like a cream ale. Light straw yellow body with bubbly, prickly carbonation. It smells like strawberries, but theres still a good amount of the base creamy sweet beer floating around. I like how the creaminess works with the straweberry scents.

This thing is laden with the fresh strawberry flavors that I love to death. Theres loads of fresh strawberries waiting for you, yet it doesnt feel candy sweet. Its like they took one hell of base beer, and just dry hopped the shit out of it with fresh strawberries. The only negative is theres a bit of an astringent bit that feels just a bit too crisp.

Take that away, and youve got one hell of a beer.
