Appearance - Pours a clouded pink strawberry color, a soda pop crown on top that does not last long.

Aroma - Raspberry syrup,giving the soda a fresh fruity...oh, this is beer...never mind.

Taste - Budweiser and raspberry syrup. At the Cincy Beerfest a few years ago, I had this left hand milk stout on cask, sitting on Coffee Emporium coffee beans, poured over a scoop of Graeters vanilla bean ice cream. Incredible blend of flavors that the sweetness of the ice cream really worked great with. Looking forward to February and hoping to find that again. If you're in town, check it out!

Back to this review... Sweet raspberry flavor masking a mostly non-descript lager, as designed I suspect. This sweet tooth has no problem dispatching the bottle, but it is alcopop, and an 8% alcopop at that. An odd butteriness at times, but mostly just a lot of sugariness.

Mouthfeel - slick, carbonation is a little muted.

Overall - one and done. I try to limit my alcohol consumption more these days, and this I would consider a poor use of my allotment.

When taking the first sip of this beer it tastes like raspberry juice and you will think oh man for 8% this is pretty delicious, but the aftertaste is like someone spilled their lager into your cup of juice. Drinking more than one of these at a time made me sick because of how sweet it was. I cant safely say that its NOT my type of lager.. or that i even consider it a lager. Its worth a try though, some people enjoy that overly sweet taste. I consider it more of a sugary mixed drink, but that's just my opinion.
