look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Poured with a 1 finger white head that fizzled out like the foam on a soda within 10 seconds. The beer is a yellow straw color with a green tint to it. has medium carbonation.

Smells like citrus - lemon-lime and.... rhubarb?

Tastes like lemons and limes right off the bat. The citrus flavors go away almost as fast as the head did. Very sugary. Tastes like beer mixed with some sort of lemon lime soda. Not a huge fan.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Low to medium carbonation.

Hard to drink, got halfway done with my glass and decided to finish my review and pour it down the drain.

EDIT: Mothman decided to chug it right when I was gonna toss it.

(Review for novelty purposes only)

Pours a clear gold, with a hint of green. No head, but with thin rings of lacing.

Smell is skunked fruity lime.

Taste is sweet, maybe a little lime, maybe a little beer.

Mouthfeel is thin, but somehow fitting.

Drinkability is poor, there should at least be a reasonable amount of alcohol.

Overall, fun to try, and that's it.

How can anyone call this trash Beer?? A light yellow "beer" with no head. The aroma is sweet - artificially and very lemony, while the flavor also is very lemony again somewhat artificial with a slight touch of malt, and a dry end. I wonder if artificial sweeteners have been used. I poured this one down the drain after tasting about 6 ounces. Tried to be objective on this, but, this stuff is garbage and not recommended.

This beer brings back memories of my father mixing a Shandy consisting of half lager and half gingerbeer. This is the same thing but with lemonade. The beer is pale straw colour with delicate head. The nose is mostly lemon with hops in the background. I liked the fresh lemnoade taste combined with the decent euro lager. Low in alcohol and decent in the drinkability dept. this is a interesting summer beverage.

Got this from a friend that could not handle the taste of this beer.

Poured into pint glass.

Pours a 1/2 finger head. Somewhat good retention. The head was slightly lime colored. Colors is a green yellow. Kind of musky.

Aroma is skunky and fruity (lemon/lime.. maybe along the lines of sprite).

Taste is fruity (just like fruit loops). Also a bit skunky. Bready and lemon/limes.

Creamy and smooth. A tad tarty. Goes down easy and leaves a clean lemon/lime aftertaste.

Overall this beer would result in hardcore gut rot if too many are consumed. I had a hard time finishing this beer. I don't recommend.

Warsteiner Premium Lemon pours a greenish yellow with a thick white head from a clear twelve ounce bottle. There isn't much aroma, a hint of malt is noticeable. The flavor isn't especially good, it's on the sweet side and the lemon flavor is very strong. There is a hint of malt too. It tastes more like a wine cooler than beer. I'd pass.

Even worse than the orange version. I hate lemon flavored anything but I manned up and tried this. It was gross as I suspected. The color was very bright, it probably glows in the dark the taste is just not good to me at all. Really not sure why the brewer even wanted to make these.

Pale greenish gold color with a modest and quick disappearing head.

The aroma is lemon/lime with a hint of crackers in the background, possibly a bit of herbal hops.

The taste is also primarily lemon/lime soda with just a hint of light malt and a light touch of hops at the finish. Fairly sweet, maybe a bit less than the Radler and with the added tang of lime. Reasonably refreshing, a possible lawn mowing cooler for hot weather. Still a bit sweet for my taste, but i'm sure some may appreciate it.
