Well, I'm from San Antonio, and so is apparently Pete's Brewing Company. I had no idea until I checked this beer's review page out. Sad.
A - Pours a dark gold with a thin, white head that fizzles out after a few seconds. This resembles a common macro-lager. It doesn't appear very inspired.
S - Not much to speak of. A faint strawberry scent, I wouldn't even call it an aroma; nothing much else here.
T - Very weak, it doesn't have much flavor at all, and what flavor it does have is not very good. A faint strawberry tart way in the back, it's hard to distinguish from the rest of the beer. I wish I could comment more on the flavor, but it just isn't there.
M - Stings the tongue almost immediately, goes down sour. Does not feel welcoming on the tongue.
D - Drinkability? yeah, all day, it's like water. Now whether you want to put these down all day is entirely up to you, I wouldn't.
Overall, a disappointing showing from my hometown. If you're looking for a better strawberry-"infused" beer, I recommend Abita's Strawberry Harvest. It's not entirely better, but it's a shade or two more respectable.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle which I found a dusty shelf in a convenience store. It was marked 09220-0832. If it is no longer brewed I wonder how old my bottle was.
It still looked good for a retired beer with a medium amber-copper color, loads of upwardly mobile carbonation and great clarity.
The aroma is strawberry forward with vaguely roasted malts on the backside and a touch of hops.
The body was medium and very creamy or smooth.
The strawberry was more downplayed in the taste than in the aroma but there is an overpowering malty and buttery flavor going on. Like I said, I have no idea how old this bottle was but I thought it was decent enough.
