Small Town Brewery "Not Your Mom's Strawberry Rhubarb"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, coded "0807LX 0119FL" whatever that means
$2 @ Weis, Conshohocken, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Well I certainly wasn't expecting it to be pink, that's interesting. Now I definitely feel like I'm drinking a woman's drink. It's a very light pink, and there's no head at all. Plenty of bubbles are rising to the surface though, just like in a soda pop. OK, so let's see, strawberry, rhubarb, and vanilla - can I smell any of those? No, not really. It's fruity but nothing is really clear, and it's sugary. It looks like soda and it smells like soda. Let's taste it... well there's some strawberry there, and rhubarb, and vanilla, so well done on that count although those flavors are fairly mild. It reminds me a little of Flinstone's vitamins. There are certainly no hops though. This is not beer. It's a malternative. A 5.9% ABV soda pop. I could certainly live without this one, and I think it's the least interesting and least enjoyable out of their entire line-up.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

I did not expect it to pours a light shade of purple. It looks like flavors water, which is technically what it is. It has absolutely no head.

It smells like a sugary and sweet with some fruit.

It tastes like a Smirnoff Ice variant. It is a sweet, fruity malternative.

Soda-like mouthfeel

This is not at all what I expected. I need to see a therapist now.

Looks like someone murdered Kirby in my glass. And it smells hilariously sweet and artificial, which may suggest Kirby sucked up an entire sugar cane tree and some fake strawberry rhubarb candies. And as I taste this, yup...our poor Kirby sucked up all that sweet stuff before he met his demise at the hands of...I dunno, King Dedede I guess. There's an intense sugar burn to go with the cloying nature. I can't drink Kirby's remains anymore.

1.56/5: Stay far away from this, Wilford Brimley...and everyone else

Maybe giving this more credit than due, but there's no use rating this compared to a beer. Very artificial looking pink head, decent aromas of strawberry and hints of vanilla. Very sweet, a little rhubarb bitterness, but don't look to deep into this one. A good beach beer, easy to sip, but can't say too much more. Stick with Not Your Father's Root Beer.

This beverage pours into a clear pint glass as an extremely pale purple with no head. The aroma is a chemically sweet and manufactured one. The taste isn't much different, and it's difficult to get a mouthfeel on this other than I want it out of my mouth. This isn't a beer, it's an alcoholic beverage closer to a flavored malted beverage.

12 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Looks like I’m in for a treat. Aroma of berries; smells like a wine cooler. Pours clear pink with no head; looks like a wine cooler. Tastes sweet and a bit tart; tastes like a wine cooler, and nothing like a strawberry rhubarb pie or any kind of beer. If it walks like a duck, etc, etc. What a joke.

Pours a fizzy head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear pink color. Fierce carbonation and light bodied. Strawberry nose and flavor is dominated with sweet strawberry, some rhubarb. Not a real beer, can't find malt or hops. Part of a mixed 6-pak $9.99, 12oz bottle from Shaw's Supermarket Concord, NH.

Nothing like a beer that looks like melted red skittles. Very very sweet but still somewhat enjoyable because of what it is. Can't drink a lot of it but it is pretty good

Served from the tap in a snifter at Beelow's.

Having missed this at a fest or two in the past year or so, I was rather pleased to see it tapped at my usual haunt. It pours a clear pink (a shade that I can only describe as bright rosé) without any real perceptible head (it could have been a short one that just happens to have dissipated whilst the beer was en route to me, but that's just wild and hopeful speculation). The nose comprises strawberry, spicy ginger, and overtly sweet fruit syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, with sweet berries mixing healthily with this vague, ginger-like spicy expression. I think of it as kinda like a Jones soda in some ways. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda syrupy feel. Overall, an enjoyably different beer, one you need to have a good sweet tooth to fully enjoy without being overwhelmed.
