On-tap at Alcatraz (Orange)

A: The pour is a turbid pale straw color with a soapy white head on top of it.

S: Strawberry syrup is a good way to describe this one. Quite sugary and cloying, with a fake strawberry aroma. Smells a bit like that strawberry pie gel stuff.

T: The flavor is much better than I was expecting. Sure, it's still incredibly sweet, but it has a bit of a strawberries and cream type flavor to it. Definitely sugary and a bit syrupy, though.

M: Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation.

O: Miles better than the raspberry version and somewhat of a guilty pleasure. I don't think I could take down a pint of this, but it wasn't horrible.

On tap at the Alcatraz location in Anaheim, CA.

Poured a lighter and hazy yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of citrus, wheatiness, and some strawberries. Tastes follow of the same citrus, wheat, and strawberries. For some reason, the strawberries reminded me of the strawberry ice tea from Ruby Tuesdays.
