A: The beer is crystal clear ruby red in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a dense pink head that completely dissipated very quickly.
S: There are aromas of cinnamon and strawberries in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of cinnamon, herbs and strawberries. It’s only a bit sweet and tastes a little like soda.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink. It’s like drinking a ginger ale that has more herbs and cinnamon in the taste.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a crystal clear grenadine red in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy (just like soda) slightly lighter grenadine red head that quickly reduces to a medium patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Initially it smells like someone dropped an atomic fireball candy into a light beer. After taking a minute to settle, there are moderate aromas of cinnamon and strawberry - actually this is quite pleasant and might have given me a new idea to experiment with when making a dessert.

T: Similar to the smell the taste is pretty mild with some sweetness and the combination of cinnamon and strawberry with the cinnamon being slightly stronger. There is a light underlying spiciness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Far more enjoyable than I expected judging from the completely artificial looking color and atomic fireball initial smell. Very easy to drink and refreshing. I would have this again and I can easily see how it appeals to folks that live in a much warmer climate than myself...
