look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: a light brown with a reddish hue. Pretty clear. Small tan head that quickly fades.
Smell: sweet. Strawberry sweetness. Milk sugar sweetness and a bready scent
Taste: interesting how much it is actually like strawberry short cake. Opens up with sweet strawberries that give way to a bread taste and finishes off with sugar. My complaint is that the flavors are very artificial. The strong sweetness is overkill and adds to the artificitialty.
Mouthfeel: fairly heavy and full for the low alcohol. Finishes way to sweet.
Overall: this one is a dud in the shorts lineup. They usually do so well with this type of beer. But the sweetness is off putting and the taste is too artificial
Serving type: bottle

Thanks to sarro for the bottle. Tasted 14 November 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours a clean amber, mostly but not totally clear (can't quite see through it). Half-finger of whitish head, okay retention and lacing.
Smells like strawberry shortcake! Sweet and sugary and strawberry. Like sponge cake and strawberries in a crazy beery combination. Always impressive when people can make beers smell or taste like weird non-beer things.
Taste doesn't have as much going on as the smell; more toasty bready malts than cake or berries. Gets more interesting as I progress through it.
Medium-bodied. Juicy and expansive, but a little flat.
A nice strawberry beer (not that I've had all that many). Pretty tasty, definitely fruity and interestingly sweet. Unique, with that sweet cake and strawberry.
