A: pours with billowing white head that is quick to subside, clear amber at first with a bit of sediment towards the end, it may be slightly red...strawberry or just amber/red ale?
S: pungent strawberries, almost artificial in sweetness. slightly bready as well, perhaps that is cake part. there is none of the cloying, almost fuzzy sweetness of raw, over-ripe strawberry, but a lot of the fresh zest.
T: significantly less strawberry, slightly yeasty, perhaps vienna malts too, the "house" short's character is quite present, almost a generic amber ale that had tons of fruit treatment.
M: medium body, easy drinking, not much of a lingering aftertaste. most of the flavor was in the front with the smells.
O: another tasty beer from short's. i would not buy a sixer of this, but it was fun to sample, and i'd probably take another pour, if given at a bar.

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.
