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.
