This is as good as it gets when it comes to lime beers. Moosehead has always put out a solid product, and I have to say that this was the best of their's that I have ever had. I've been consuming it for years and am upset that it has been discontinued (at least in this part of the US).
The taste is crisp and clean. An excellent summer beer. The lime taste is poignant without being overpowering. I think it's unfair to judge this beer along the likes of Gordon's (G'Knight) or Stormking Stout.
It's not a beer that's bold. It isn't trying to be bold. It's a good beer most people will never try and it stands head and shoulders above the lime beers from the major American breweries.

It was super hot out today so I thought i'd walk down to my neighbourhood store and pick up some light beer - just wasn't in the mood for something strong. This is one of the first beers I ever had so I thought I'd get it for nostalgia's sake.
Anyway, it's your standard light lime lager. However, I think this one is better than BL Lime or Miller Chill and WAY better than Big Rock Lime. It's still a pretty sub-par beer, but when it's over 25 degrees out, you need something lighter, and this one really hits the spot. It's good a nice lime taste with a good beeriness to it as well. I dig the green bottle. Still watery as hell but I totally knew what I was getting myself into. When I compare this to other beers of the same style (light lime lagers), this one is superior to many others.

Poured into...who the hell cares...but it was a wine glass just to be funny.
Leftover from a Christmas party.
Transparent straw color with low carbonation.
Lime, lemon and grains.
The lime flavor is dominant by far. Some lemon and adjunct corny malts.
Thin and watery.
BAHAHAHA!!! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! This is a joke, right?

With 4% ABV, this 100% natural lime flavored beer takes refreshing to a whole new level!
Compared to bud light lime and miller chill, it has the right amount of lime taste to it without being overpowering.
Good balance with a clean finish.
Great summer beer.

Another beer from Woody. Thanks again!
-Appearance 3.0: Poured out a light golden straw color. Nice head for a light beer: at least an inch. Head stuck around in light swirls on top.
-Smell 3.5: Wow, very nice! Lots of lime peel and grain in the bouquet. No hint of the adjuncts or metal found in most American light beers.
-Taste 3.5: Cool liquid up front with a barley middle and lots of lime and barley in the finish. Aftertaste of lime peel. I am shocked and surprised, but I actually LIKE THIS. Again, no hint of adjuncts or metal in the taste.
-Mouthfeel 3.5: Better than average mouth feel especially for a light beer. Carbonation is medium and easy drinking.
-Overall 3.5: I must be losing my mind. I can't believe how much I am enjoying this PRE-FLAVORED LIGHT BEER! This beer is easy-drinking, satisfying and thirst quenching. I am going to be searching high and low to buy a case or two of this brew this summer. Surprising and recommended.

A friend gave me a can of this last summer. I've been a little scared to give it a try, but for some reason, I decided to now. Poured it into a Bud Light pint glass. Fitting, huh?
A: Looks really thin. Light gold in color. It does have a nice head on it after a vigorous pour.
S: Smells like a bottle of lemon-lime seltzer. No kidding. I drink seltzer quite a lot, and if you asked me to do a triangle test with this beer and a glass of seltzer I don't think I could tell the difference by aroma alone. This simply doesn't smell like a beer. Moosehead must be going after Corona's market share with this one.
T: Tastes like an extremely light beer that they spiked with lime flavoring to mask any and all beer characteristics. Strange, eh? Are you buying this because it's a beer, or because of the "beach-like" feeling because it reminds you of drinking a Corona on hot summer day (without actually having to add a lime).
M: For as good a head as this one head, it actually tastes flat. Super light feel... but really, what else can you expect? The can lists this one having only 112 calories. They must be going after women trying to watch their weight, naive college kids, or meatheads who try to drink but still try to stay in shape (you know, the guy at the gym just bursting with muscles that goes out with his friends and sticks to diet drinks & light beer the whole night).
O: I'm completely disgusted with this beer. I knew it would be bad and my expectations were certainly met. Sure, I'm being hard on this beer, but really - what is it trying to be? This one fails for me on so, so many fronts. I'm also wondering what the real meaning of "100% natural lime flavor" actual means. If this was actual lime they added, then why do they need to add the "flavor" part?
