3.4/5  rDev +56.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A- Yellow and fizzy as expected with an overly tall 3" pure white head which quickly fades to a tiny layer. Lots of little carbonation bubbles and brilliantly clear make this beer look somewhat appetizing.

S- Definitely sweet sugar and lime, like a margarita and a beer. Overall it smells like a lime beer, as it should...

T- Light in flavor, there's a little lime taste when drinking, then the lime flavor is more present in the aftertaste. The beer character had a bit of sweetness in the middle.

M- Very thin and watery. Lots of carbonation make it a quick and easy drinker, like it should be, but it feels like drinking lime water more than lime beer in some ways.

D- This beer certainly surprised me. I am not a fan of bud light but this seems to cover up the off flavors with a moderately enjoyable lime characteristic. If I was going to drink a lot of beers on a summer day I wouldn't mind this being one or two of them.

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.

2.1/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no "born on" date on the bottle that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, pale, light yellow with less than 1 finger white head that dissipated completely in about 1 minute, not a trace of lacing, medium carbonation.

SMELL: faint lime, that's all I got.

TASTE: It tastes like lime. I don't know where to go with this, it's fizzy and tasted like lime.

PALATE: light body, medium carbonation, did I mention the lime?

OVERALL: I have to remind myself to "respect beer" at this moment. I understand this beer is popular with frat boys but, it's not for me. This beer would appeal to people who are trying beer for the first time and have nothing to compare it to. It would also appeal to people who do not really like beer. It tasted more like a soft drink than beer.
