A: typical half finger head on a hazy pale golden body.

S: wheat with the lime nicely removing the musty adjunct lager aroma.

T: lime is pretty strong with this one with the wheat and adjunct lager bitterness well hidden.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: This is more of a fruit and spices beer than an adjunct lager. Not good but the lime hides the bad stuff.

95 degrees outside and 95% humidity? Want some beer? This is an EXCELLENT choice. Thin? Yes. Refreshing? Hell yes. Zero hops. Weiss? No. Refreshing? Hell yes. Cmon. It's in a clear bottle. Not sure why this is advertised any season other than summer. And it's kinda good with summer food like bbq.

Gotta remember to compare this to beer of similar styles. Therefore, I will compare this beer to the abysmal Miller Lite Chill.

Essentially, this beer kicks the shit out of its competition. Is it good? No. I'll take any IPA or stout over this; however, if I'm looking for a very light beer with a nice lime flavor, I'll go to this one. I can definitely see enjoying this beer in the sweltering heat. It tastes like a very faint beer with a semi-strong lime flavor.

Looks like any other macro. Smells and tastes heavily of lime and some hints of beer. Mouthfeel is light and prickly. Overally, don't go into this expecting greatness. You really have to be in the mood for it. I think the reviews are way too low. Remember...compare this to Miller Lite Chill...that is all.
