New Sarum Brewing Co Strawberry Hazy Cakes Hazy IPA, 7.0% ABV, brewed in Salisbury, North Carolina with Local Patterson Farms strawberries and Lactose is a relatively new beer from New Sarum. Strawberry Hazy Cakes pours a hazy yellow color with a one and a quarter white thin head that has little retention. You get nice light sweet fruity strawberry and nice bittersweet aromas that then lead to a bitter taste of nice fruity strawberries that have a light sweetness to them and a hint of a sour like note towards the end that comes to a hoppy strawberry finish and a bitter sweet-fruited aftertaste that linger for a second or two with a medium mouthfeel. The strawberry flavor to this is not as predominant as I was hoping but it did keep the bitterness/hoppiness down with I give New Sarum Brewing Co Strawberry Hazy Cakes Hazy IPA a C-. I would have liked to have more strawberry flavor but not a whole lot more just a little more and I think it would have been better overall. It wasn’t a terrible beer, it was just not what I was thought it was going to be and what I tasted was okay. It is however refreshing and not harsh to drink so that helps a little but I don’t think something that shouldn’t be had, but not one to rush out for. Please stay safe and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
