Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a glass handled-mug.
A: Pours a golden straw-amber color with a two finger head of wispy white foam which holds no lace.
S: Smells like a package of thawing frozen strawberries with a bit of toasted biscuit in the background.
T: Taste is sweet and grainy at first, but at least it's not in the fake, fruit-flavor additive fashion as other fruit beer tend to do. A bit like strawberry preserves on an English muffin, but in thin, ale form.
M: Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied and a bit too full of dextrin for my palate.
D: Drinkability would be way better on a hot summer's day, oh, or also if I were a female. ABV is sessionable and flavor isn't as artificial as they come, so it's worth a try.
Not to say this is a one-gender brew, but there's not a lot of substance to it and it wouldn't pair well with most food, even off the grill. Probably falls into the category of mostly a chick beer or one where guys can have one in the name of trying a new beer without feeling ashamed for doing so.

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.
