I keep stealing bad beer while visiting friends and family in Cleveland. I guess a tick's a tick, and as long as I never have to pay for these abominations, I can find some amount of enjoyment in the exploration.

Drank straight from the bottle because damn, there's no way this beer was meant to be consumed in any other way. I imagine that this is marketed as a Corona alternative without the hassle of having to provide your own lime.

A - Clear bottle - yikes. Bottle date is Julian or some other cryptic code, I am sure AB never intended the market audience to be scrutinizing over when their BL Lime was born. The beer is urine yellow for lack of a better color descriptor. At the bottom of the bottom there was some visible floating sediment. At first I thought it was actually yeast, but I doubt AB bottle conditions anything they produce. This has got to be lime in my bottle...

S - Doughy malt and fizzy lime. Pretty uninteresting. But hey, it wasn't foul.

T - Sheesh, how do people drink these beers. The lime is there, and the beer is crisp, but after debating about the resemblance to 7-Up I finally came to the conclusion that this tastes like lime flavored mineral water. No malt, no grain, no hops - mineral water.

M - The carbonation is too high for a beer, but the crispness might be better suited on an 80 degree beach somewhere.

O - Not as horrible as I imagined, but this has little to no real characteristics of beer. With subsequent sips the lime begins to taste stale; it lingers. Hand me a Perrier to wash away the shame this beer has cast upon self-respecting mineral waters.
