I see that many commercial beer have some great flavor beer such as Strawberry . the taste and sweetness is just amazing you almost think this is a soda if you drink this from a glass . i really hate the taste of bitter Barley .

i know that in order to have a good sweetniss to the beer i should use Lactose
but what my option for Strawberry flavore ? i really don't want to add actuall Strawberry to the ingredients . i don't even think this is how commercial beer does it anyway .

i found the following products and if any of you guys have some experience with this please let us know

I don't know about these brands/products that you posted, but you might want to check out one on one flavors. I did a blueberry wheat ale with it. I bought a 2oz bottle of Blueberry (fruit) concentrate from them for $12 and used about 0.5ml of concentrate put straight into the keg. It was PERFECT! I gave nice blueberry flavor without appearing candy-sweet like. Now my wife adds literally a drop or two to her coffee in the mornings lol. They have a HUGE list of offerings. They have over 20 different strawberry offerings. Cheers!

I have used brewers best flavorings before. One of the things I don’t like about any of the flavorings is to me it leaves a really weird aftertaste to me. Almost like cough syrup. Most of the time if I let it bottle condition that weird taste will fade but so will the flavor.
I would use it sparingly

I personally hate and will not use brewers best products... all have way to much of a chemical taste to them. I have used flavored coffee syrups in the past when I want to flavor something. a very little goes a long way too. as for the amoretti, its a good brand and you can also check king arthur flour site, the flavorings they carry are good too.
