First off, let me just say that I did not buy this for myself (thankfully). I was able to try it for free at my in-laws house, and I think free was too high a price.

This isn't beer. At all. It looks yellow, but it doesn't smell like beer. It tastes like lime soda. I've had other lime-flavored "beers" and the only one worse is bud light lime. Clearly a grab at the wine-cooler crowd.

Save your $$ for something else.

I dont know who ever thought of this beer, but who ever they are needs to be stabbed. My friend bought this for me because he thought it was a "weird craft beer". Well I wasnt going to be a jerk so I told him thanks and drank the beer... This is the worst decision of my life. I literally gagged on the horrible taste of the beer. anyways to the review...

The beer is a pale yellow piss color, nothing else more

The smell just isnt good at all. It has a tiny bit of malt and maybe some lime and funky scents

The taste is just horrible. I dont know how to else to explain it. I have it more than any beer I have ever had.

The mouthfeel is a lot of carbonation.

This beer sucks, dont buy it.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

My brother grabbed this as part of a mix-six.

Poured from a 12 oz twist-cap bottle into my tulip (lolz)

A = pissy yellowish green color, fizzy like soda.

S = fake lemon-lime scent, almost like Gatorade; can't detect malts or hops

T = tastes like somebody steeped a bunch of gummy worms in club soda, no hop bitterness

M = fizzy and thin, typical AAL mouthfeel

O = a horrible beer, do not recommend at all

A - Poured out a clear, highly carbonated, yellow with a one-finger, fizzy, short-lived, white head. No lace.

S - It smelled of lime. Also, a odd soapy aroma.

T - It tasted like a super sweet Sprite. So much lime and no beer-like qualities.

M - It was syrupy and lacking in anything beer-like, again.

D - Not worth another try. I just picked up one in a mixer
