Served in a 20-ounce pilsner glass at Chili's.
A: Poured a slightly red, bubbly looking golden yellow with a minimal head of loose foam.
S: Smells of straight up cherry; a little sour, and slightly sweet. Not too much else in the nose. Like Cherry Coke.
T: Tastes like a straight up lager with cherry extract added. Not as bad as it sounds though, albeit, not very complex. There's a slight hop bitterness, but it's mostly sweet cherry and grain.
M: Mouthfeel is thin and brisk. The artificial cherry flavor coats a bit.
D: I could have had another, but I switched it up to something more complicated afterwards. Not bad, but probably more suited to the summer months. Fairly drinkable.
Overall, a pretty decent fruit beer. Not being a big fan of the style, I liked this SA addition. I don;t think I could take down a whole 6-pack, and at 5.2%, it's not the fruit beer you take very lightly. It can sneak up on you, so I recommend it for its sneakiness.
Serving type: on-tap
