Draft pour into a standard curved-rim pint glass.
A: "Fizzy yellow beer", that poured with a fairly large fluffy white head initially, but it disappeared without a trace, almost immediately.
If I hold my beer up to the TV, I can still watch the game. Can almost make out the down-and-distance, too.
S: Mild cereal sweetness is overwhelmed by a stronger (all-be-it still rather mild) smell of lime juice.
T: It's Bud Light Lime, what is there to say? The lime juice is what makes this beer work. It's ALL that this beer has going for it. That said, the lime does work well here, in that it helps balance out the sweetness with a bit of *sour*, and also helps this beer finish a bit *dry*.
Underneath the lime? It's just another unbalanced, overly-sweet, flavorless adjunct lager. The lime helps mask that. If you like Lime, and you like "beer", then you probably won't hate this.
M: Thin. Light. Watery. Slightly undercarbonated. My CO2 tank is low... I hope it's not THIS low, I've got other "good" stuff hooked up to that tank too.
A mild hint of lime remains on the finish. Again, that's what this beer has to offer. Lime.
D/O: This is a drinkable beer, particularly on a warm summer day. For what it is, the Lime addition actually works rather well here. I would score this beer above Bud Light, for whatever that's worth.
Serving type: on-tap
