12oz clear bottle with no freshness date. "100% Natural Lime Flavor" on the label, natural can mean just about anything these days.
Spritzy white head drops down to a thin lacing, crystal clear pale yellow color. Dry lime aroma, smells of lime flavored Alka-Seltzer ... hello beer, anyone home? Light bodied and a little slick on the palate. The carbonation has a little bite to it. Lime flavor throughout, reminds me of a diet lemon-lime soda that has been watered down by the ice that has melted into it. Malt, no. Hops, no. All lime, yes. So I am basically drinking a diet lime soda with some alcohol.
Great concept but this is going in the wrong direction for beer and you can't even compare this to a good "lager and lime", at least with those you could actually taste beer. One bottle was more than enough, nothing horrible ... just not beer.
