Yuck. Not a fan.
I’d be ok with Fewer pastry themed beers. I agree with this beer in name.
Not as fruity as I would have liked but was very creamy
Me personally I didn’t like this one.
Very creamy and could use more strawberry but still enjoyable
this beer was good, decently creamy as well! I just wish the strawberry taste was a tad more noticeable
It was alright. Nothing screaming at me to want it again though
Expected more flavor
Solid cream ale. Wish there was more fruit flavor like the description claimed
It was too smooth and the flavors were lacking. Tasted like I was drinking a slightly alcoholic cream soda.
Light and refreshing. Not as fruit forward as I expected.
Heavy strawberry; light aroma.
Not too much flavor coming through
Nice light beer taste like strawberry for sure with a hint of like creamy vanilla
Light and creamy.
Not much flavor for being 903.
Not my favorite. Fake tasting flavors
F a k e but decent
Fake strawberry flavor but not bad
Not really creamy but has a slight taste of juiced strawberry.
super sweet strawberry ale but with a lot of sediment in it
Strawberry builds on this with every sip. And brewed to celebrate women is a bonus. I enjoyed it for a cream ale, and the fruit doesn’t overpower. I’ll go to a fruit sour to get more fruit flavor.
Very smooth. Not as fruity as I had expected but still enjoyed the taste.
It's not a bad beer, but it's definitely not what I expected. I was definitely hoping for more of the flavors it claims, but was met with a pretty underwhelming sip. Wanted strawberry shortcake deliciousness, got barely detectable fruit and cream notes. Pretty disappointed, after having bought several cans out of excitement. It won't go to waste, but I'll be sipping this one with a bit of a frown.
Very nice aroma. Unfortunately the flavors disappoint. A cream ale is the absolute wrong style to really get the flavors advertised (strawberry shortcake). Although there is a discernible taste of cream ale, the pastry part is very poorly executed. The cream ale style for fermentation reduces overall fruitiness, yielding a more bitter strawberry taste and more fermented alcohol flavors. The strawberries end up tasting like a mix of underripe and almost rotten (perhaps over fermented) all at once and distinctly vegetal as well (like strawberry leaves were left in the process). Strawberry seeds were left as part of the sediment (which I don’t normally mind), leaving a very bitter final gulp. No real richness, so I got no interpretation of a shortcake whatsoever. Since there was no lactose, there wasn’t any creaminess at all. The cream ale style doesn’t yield that; it’s moreso a marketing tool to denote it is a easier drinking beer. This would have worked best as a fruited sour or Berliner Weisse with lactose, but ultimately it wasn’t. I enjoy the can art, but not much else from this beer.
Not my favorite from 903. Lacking in flavor.
Deliciously creamy, berry cake flavor. And what a fantastic name!
Super sweet, little Debbie snack cakes in a can
I have thoroughly enjoyed (despite my previous doubts) 903's smoothies. This attempt at adding the cake fails badly for me.
Much better cold, but I love this one!
Concluded I am not a fan of cream ales. Even when made by 903.
Nothing too special, not too flavorful
really well balanced
thought it would taste sweet but tasted like regular beer to me.. 903 has delicious beer but disappointed in this one
