This is a hazy bright yellow-gold beer with a substantial head and great lacing. Smells like lime soda--kind of over sweet, artificial lime. Tastes like soda too--way, way oversweet. There's supposed to be ginger in here as well, but I don't get any. Just pungent lemon-lime sweetness. The press release says it can be enjoyed on its own or used as a cocktail mixer. Don't believe it. The former use, on its own, is borderline disgusting.

Gave this a shot because it was the first one I spotted.. that was a mistake. Like another reviewer said it is more like pop than beer, it is lacking in both good ginger flavor and beer flavor. The weird, stomach-churning aftertaste of cheaply added malt liquor reminds me of side pocket which made me sicker than I've ever been in my life. I wish I could say this was good, it's just not.
