Had this on tap at Old Chicago Westminster as their Store Choice on the Cinco De Mayo mini-tour (Greg or Kevin, what WERE you thinking??)
I ordered this not knowing what the choice was, wanting to finish the mini tour.

Anyway, I was a gamer to at least give this a whirl. When Mike brought it to my table, shaking his head, apologizing for not warning me what selection #8 on mini tour was, I saw a typical yellow fizzy brew I could just about read my newspaper through. I thought to myself, "ok, this is gonna be like Bud Light. I can do this as even though I wouldn't buy BL, I can get one down." There was very little carbonation in the glass and very little aroma. I took a sip and said to myself, yes, this is a Bud Light. Very thin mouthful and very little taste. I swallowed the sip, thinking I'd get through the shaker glassful. Then it hit me: God-awful over-powering lime flavor. I took a sip of water to cleanse the pallot, and tried again. Yep, same thing at first, then that NASTY lime flavor hit. This time several sips of water couldn't get rid of the nasty aftertaste. My girlfriend said the lime taste reminded her of some kind of medicine she took as a child. I choked down one shaker of this monstroscity; she couldn't do more than one sip of her's and I couldn't finish it for her. Don't know what AB was thinking but this one is definitely not worth the time and effort to brew. Warning, Will Robinson. Danger, Danger. Avoid this one!!
