Beer looks great. It has that nice straw color lager, with a nice staying head that seems to be lacing. The beer displays some great visible carbonation as well.
It smells like Captain Crunch or some berry cereal. Berry Berry Kix maybe... I guess that makes sense though with the cereal grains and berry flavor. That pretty much dominates it and I can't get anything else except for Saturday morning cereal.
This is an over the top sweet beer. It tastes exactly like it smells. The only thing I have with it though is that the strawberry flavor and the lager flavor aren't meshing very well. It's almost like there are two flavors battling each other in this beer. It's a cool idea though.
Mouthfeel is crisp and snappy. Overall this is a neat beer. It's definitely an original and I think it's cool that it's being made.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: light golden-yellow hue with a light haze and effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam with decent retention. Not bad.
Smell: lightly malty aroma with a moderate strawberry note. Not over the top, which I like, but also not terribly complex.
Taste: much like the aroma, there's a light malt flavor with a fair bit of strawberry character. I'm generally not a fan of strawberry beers; I think the fruit is too subtle to really stand out in a beer context.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.
Overall: this beer is fine, although it really doesn't float my boat. Well-enough made, it just doesn't have a strong appeal.
