2.83/5  rDev +31%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

I tried this from the 7oz bottle in a tumbler.

The color is very pale golden with a fluffy white cap the is now you see it now you don't. There is no lace and lots of micro bubbles quicky rise to the surface. The smell is citrus-lime infused with a light clean overall aroma, kind of seltzery with a slight sweet scent. The feel is light in body with an almost watery body with prickly carbonation and subtle tanginess from the lime with very gentle astringent aspect, dry and clean in the sparkling gassy finish.

The flavor is better than I expected. I have had this before and was not sure how I felt. The flavor is so light it is like having a lime flavored alka-seltzer practically. There is a sweet tinge from whatever malt there is in this. The lime flavor is a gentle addition to the light beer taste, not overdone and freshens the slightly dull crisp taste a bit. Overall it is more of a drink for refreshing the palate on a hot summer day after mowing than a beverage to enjoy the day after Christmas, but for the price it isn't terrible

I poured this out of a can. It pours a golden pale color. It pours little head that is not what I am looking for in any beer that should be good.

The smell is heavily of lime/citrus. thats all. not great for a beer.

It tastes of water and lime/citrus. Its watered down like bud light, but it has an overwhelming taste of citrus.

It makes me want tacos; not taco bell but the authentic mexican tacos with cilantro and lime on the beef/pulled pork.

The mouthfeel is too harsh and too carbonated for my taste.

Overall, its pretty acceptable but not great by any means. I will drink it every once in awhile.
