3.55/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Smell and taste are of strawberries and some malt, with a touch of hops to give it minimal bitterness. It's sweet, but for as dominant as the strawberry flavor is, it's not too terribly sweet. Mouthfeel is somehow thin and creamy at the same time, and it goes down very, very easy with the high ABV masked expertly and dangerously. The strawberry flavor tastes fresh but may be a bit too much. Overall, it's a good beer for a summer day, but again, be careful with this one. It's tasty although not complex enough and too sweet to satisfy most beer advocates.

2.89/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

On-tap 9/29/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strawberries lager yeast, honey, light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of strawberries and honey. Then some mild breadiness comes in from lager yeast and a thin malt character. The hops presence is very mild and there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is tart.

M: Crisp and but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, doesn’t go down very easily, not too filling, good kick, not the best representation of style, I see what they were going for here but it’s just not a very good beer.
