look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates instantly but leaves a thin frothy layer over top. Leaves nice lacing.

Smell - Has a faint lime smell to it, and citrus. Nothing else really stands out..

Taste - I was expecting more out of the flavor.. It's very watered down. The lime flavor is also very faint. The only other present flavor I taste is citrus..

Mouthfeel - Light in body with a lot of carbonation.

Overall - It's not a bad beer but I thought it would be better due to popularity. Don't drink this if you have acid reflux lol..

The Crap-in-a-Can-Crusade™ continues!

24 oz. can with lime green tab, "11 313" on bottom of can, if a julian date, roughly mid-Oct. '11

Fizzy, soapy white head on it for about a minute, which rapidly fades, leaving a glassy, still surface with the occasional breach from rising bubbles. From the side, there are rapid trails of rising carbonation, champagne streamers. Audible soda fizz on the second pour.

Smells like lime, not the fresh juicy kind, but at least some semblance of "100% natural lime" listed on the can. Later as it warms it's slightly floral and bland, becoming artificial like a lime-shaped car air freshener.

Tastes like wet paper, manila folders soaked in club soda with a splash of lime juice. Dry, flabby, mealy aftertaste once the carbonation dies down a bit. Watery and insipid, lacking crispness of a good lager, with a touch of "natural" lime. Just utterly dull and lacking any sort of character outside of the lime addition. Water tastes pretty good with a lime in it too...
