Turn back the years in your mind to a simpler time when those sunny afternoons seemed to last forever and you would only concede the ending of day with the chasing of fireflies at twilight.  Summers were endless and time was not measured by the movements on a clock but instead by the number of leaps through a lawn sprinkler or by the beat of baseball cards in your bicycle spokes. Dinner time was family time, and on special occasions you were rewarded with the ultimate dessert, a strawberry shortcake with berries so ripe that the sweet red juice would soak like a sponge into the shortcake and melt like a pastry on your tongue.  Now you can revive those memories with a frosty pint of this delicious red cream ale, for in your glass resides an unbelievably drinkable brew that is light, lively and creamy, with an easygoing maltiness and a delicate reddish hue acting as the backdrop for the fruit-juicy strawberry shortcake flavor that, with a single sip, will transport you from the worries of the day back to that simpler era when time was measured as how long it took between each sip of amazing red strawberry shortcake ale!
