look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured from clear 12-ounce bottle into an SA pint glass.

A: Poured a very clear, bubbly, pale straw yellow with a thin head of fizzy carbonation.

S: The lime smell is a tad acrid, and of course, there's a trademark grainy, metallic light lager aroma.

T: There's an initial burst of natural lime flavor, and I'm not going to knock it; it's like taking the first sip of a Corona after you jammed a lime in it and there's juice left on the rim. The rest is sharp, watery rice and grain, with an abrasive metallic-sweet finish.

M: Mouthfeel is very sharp, fizzy and tart.

D: There will be those who love it, and those who will slam it hard. As a beer, it's not very drinkable in terms of being a regular session brew. It's kitschy and BMC and BL fans specifically will swallow down the tripe.

It is what it is, a low calorie, low ABV, low complexity guzzler with an attempt to become more interesting for summer with a novelty lime flavor. Corona's been doing it forever, why fault Bud for forcing the idea onto people by putting the lime in it for you? I still can't recommend it at all, though.
