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.

2.58/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

For appearance it is very hard for a beer to appear bad, that's why it gets a 4. That is where the high marks end. The smell has a very faint lime smell to it and is the only think you can smell from the beer. The taste is just lime and nothing more. The mouth feel is light and is like drinking a bud light. Overall the beer isn't good. I wanted to try it as a beach beer and is low in abv and comes in cans. It gave me slight hard burn and is like drinking a watered down corona.

Serving type: can
