Dessert in a glass. A beer I've never reviewed before and now have the chance thanks to mtomlins.

Pours a beautiful copper colour with a respectable head that has good retention. Aroma of pure strawberry syrup, with a malted barley crust. If smelled with eyes closed, could be surprised that there was no strawberry shortcake present. The flavour likewise has the best of the dessert elements, albeit in liquid form.

Not a beer in any traditional sense, but delivers very well on the promise of the name.

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.
