Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager ....

This evening I will try a Strawberry Harvest Lager from Abita Brewing Company.  4.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows IBUs at 13.

This beer poured with a small, white head.  Beer color is a paler yellow, similar to lemonade.  The aroma has a real strawberry sweetness to it.  For some reason, it reminds me of strawberry icing.  There is some malt and grains in the taste, but the strawberry really takes over quickly.  Its not completely overpowering, but very "up front".  The finish is somewhat dry.  Very little aftertaste, maybe just a little strawberry.  This beer is more fruity than I like, but I have to say the strawberry is very "natural" tasting and pleasant.
