This is only being reviewed because A) it was a gift, B) I usually like anything with lime in it, and C) this is the first time any Labatt product was brewed in the US, in the old High Falls brewery in Rochester, NY (a.k.a. Genessee Brewing Co.), which has made some decent brews over the years, and D) even though the Big Boys are not considered craft brewers, they deserve to be reviewed just for the sake of comparison.

Noticeable scent of lime apparent in the nose immediately on opening - 100% natural lime flavor according to the label. That is one good point at least.

Poured aggressively, it produces a two-finger head of brilliant whiteness, which quickly dissipates, leaving a pale straw-yellow beverage with a halo of the ultra-white head clinging to the edges of the surface. Very little active carbonation - you can almost count the bubbles forming at the bottom of the glass.

Under hopped and lightly malted, this beverage has little more taste than lime-flavored water, but has enough fizz to give it a pleasant feeling in the mouth when ingested and sloshed around a bit.

I suppose it technically qualifies as a beer - I would drink it if it was offered and nothing else was available - but not something I would select or recommend to anyone (except maybe a 21-year old sorority sister who is being introduced to the consumption of alcoholic beverages).

Light beer drinkers will probably like this, but I suspect not a lot of BA's fall into that category.
