look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

a - light beer.

s - smells pretty close to a real lime. Moreso than a wine cooler or fake lime soda.

t - light, for certain. Nice mostly-real lime overtone.

m - light beer. Even carbonation.

d - goes down easy. I could kill a six pack alongside a few hot dogs with no problem. Low ABV needs little masking, admittedly, but no hint of alcohol in there.

To each his own but I think this beer gets a bum rap. I try and rate on the category and this is no strong ale or stout. If it's summer and I want a light beer outside, I'm grabbing this over most other light options in the cooler. Light, refreshing, and less likely to be skunked than most Mexican imports that advertise their desire to be served with a real lime. I have to give them credit for really nailing a real lime flavor and lime zest scent far better than the competition. Give me BLL's reliability over a spin-the-wheel-of-skunk Corona any day.

I don't understand how several reviews mention that this beer is tasty and refreshing, often with mexican food...yet still rate this as a D or lower?
