From a can into a pint glass, clear pale yellow with a hint of green and moderate carbonation streams. One finger of fizzy white foam, quick fade. Nose is pleasant with a sweet natural lime aroma and not much else. Surprisingly the nose actually smells of lime and not artificial flavoring. It doesn’t smell like beer, but it doesn’t smell like a laboratory either. Tastes of pleasant lime with hints of bread, grass, and a faintly bitter finish. Almost beer-like. In the mouth, it’s lightly carbonated, watery, and quenching.
Overall: Surprisingly inoffensive. Not very beer-like; more like seltzer with a twist. Miles better than similar “lime flavored malt drinks.” I wouldn’t seek another out, but wouldn’t turn one down if offered.

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.

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.
