look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a small white head with good retention, spotty lace.

S: Strawberry Crush, it is nostalgic and a bit odd to smell in a beer, but fun.

T: Strawberry soda initially, but then the lager comes in, and it's just a strange transition. The flavours are nice enough, but they never gel.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, a little cloying, refreshing to a degree.

O: A fun little summer experiment, it is artificial, but enjoyable for a single purchase to try something different.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed cloudy gold in color, with a moderate cap of white foam.
Aroma-Pleasant strawberry essence
Taste-Pale malt, strawberries. Crisp, faintly sweet with citrus undertones. A nice, easy drinking, crisp, summertime quencher.
