Bottle received as an extra.

Pours a jammy looking red, not very dark, or very light, right in the middle. There's a half inch head, with a small amount of lacing.

Smells quite like fresh strawberries, they translated the flavor pretty well. I am also picking up some vanilla.

The taste is similar. The wonderful fresh strawberry flavor, like sweet jam, is the overwhelming flavor, but I am getting some vanilla flavor that brings whipped cream to mind. I am not getting a whole lot "cake" flavor, however. This is really one-note, but luckily, I like that note.

This one is fairly light bodied, with a sweet, slightly sticky mouthfeel, and a lower level of carbonation. I'm glad the carbonation is lower, or this might have approached fruit soda territory.

A very interesting and tasty beer from Short's, a great fruit beer.

A - Pours a dark red with a one-finger foamy white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving no lacing. Lots of floaties.

S - Aromas of strawberry and toasted malts.

T - Just like the aroma. Lots of strawberry right upfront. The strawberry is followed by the toasted malts. There is a faint lactose sweetness throughout. Finish is more strawberry.

M - Light bodied with light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

O - This was better than I expected. Not something I would seek out, but definetly an interesting beer.

Just got back from a mini Michigan vacation and was able to trade for a nice size sampler of Shorts bottles.

Strawberry Cake was better than expected. The fruitiness isn't overwhelming, but one bottle is definitely enough. It's perfect for sharing as an after-dinner treat; obviously it pairs well with pie or cake.

Overall a very unique beer and I'm looking forward to trying their other offerings.
