2.6/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

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.

2.58/5  rDev +18.9%
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.
