The beer comes in a lemonade color.

The aroma is very citrus of lemons and lime.

The flavor follows with that tart lime and lemon in the front, but then there is a pure assault of sweetness. It tastes like drinking sugar water. There's a hint of pineapple.

The beer hides its alcohol, no grain flavors, but it is way too sweet.

Shared a tallboy with my wife, #freshbeer info 14057 (canned Feb. 26, 2014)

Straight from the can, aroma is margarita all the way and so is the flavor. They nail what they are going for but i do not get the feeling i am drinking a beer and it fails at that. Would rather have a real margarita.

From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 140730-BK09. Sampled on May 15, 2014 when it was 75 and slight humid outside. Straight up with no ice (as they recommend).

Odd looking lime juice-yellow mash up with no head to speak of. Rather opaque.

Aroma is virtually all lime and lime juice with the vaguest hint of barley malt if I close my eyes and wince.

OK, I will give it an average grade for body because as far as the style goes - it is meant to be light and refreshing and that is the case.

The taste is like the aroma...lots and lots of lime. Bring on some burritos, refried beans, and rice and I'll have a feast.

25 FL. OZ. can
Served in a chalice.

A - It an opaque, pale green liquid with plenty of tiny bubbles immersed in it. There is no head whatsoever.

S - It has a sour and lime aroma.

T - It tastes like an over-carbonated margarita. While I admit that I am not a margarita connoisseur, this is a similar taste experience.

M - Thin and highly carbonated.

O - I could probably do it once a year with a shot of tequila, but I will stick with shitty Mexican beer for Cinco de Mayo (and of course shots of tequila).
