From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 14079-BK10. Sampled on May 10, 2014.

The pour. You're kidding me. Red. Quick burst of white fizzy head and then stagnant red. Good grief.

The aroma. Strawberries. Fruit juice. Any malts or hops are invisible. But it is a fruit beer so I will grade it better than the way it looks.

Body. Light. I guess that is the way it is supposed to be so that would be average.

Taste. Strawberry juice. Sugar. Sweet to the extreme. Oh, and yes, a bit of lime in the mix. I always try to find the positives in every beer I drink. Hmm...can't think of many. I guess I will have to give it kudos for its body texture. And the 8% ABV is well masked. It reminds me of the old wine coolers that were so popular in the 80's.

236ml can, a not so surprising find in my local liquor store's remainder bin.

This beer pours a clear, stupid orange-tinged bright pink colour, with zero head, zero lace, and zero beer cred thus far, so sorry for this short-ass paragraph.

It smells like those strawberry yuk-a-fluxes we had back in first year university - sugary strawberry concentrate from the grocery store, whatever random citrus fruit anyone had kicking around, and a hefty dose of the best vodka you could afford - read: not all that smooth. The taste is more of the same, but with a subtle, oh so subtle reference to the cheap lager spilled on the floor earlier by those dudes who insisted on pursuing their small-town adherence to such.

The carbonation is pretty low-key, in the vein of coolers everywhere, the body a hefty medium weight, all attributable to that fake fruity, sugar inherent nature - any smoothness not really on the table as such right now. It finishes mostly sweet, sugary, and still a forgery in its prominently sugary character.

I can't hate this outright - sure, it's nothing like a beer, so the end score reflects that, but the actual taste is ok, once that initial hump is passed by. Not beer, ok, but for a general fruit admirer this is ok, which I know is getting way off-topic, but I'm only keeping in tune with the brewer's intent here, as it were.
