330ml bottle poured into tulip 29/9/13

A hazy straw yellow, slightly milky, just a few bubbles but a large head that quickly falls leaving a few random patches

S smells like sickly sweet lemon-aid with some sweet macro malt hiding in the background, not a whole lot else

T reminds me of sprite with more lemon, more of a cooler then beer but I suppose that's the goal

M light and just a little foamy, sweet citrus lingers on the finish and a little slimy after the fact

O most people wouldn't recognize this as beer if passed to them blindfolded, very straightforward and simple but drinkable and I doubt I'd ever bother again

maybe on a hot day trying to stay sober but even then I'm sure I could find something better to drink,

Hazy pale yellow color, small head that dissipated quickly.
Clear and predominant lemon aroma.
Very refreshing and citric taste, and not overly sweet.
The caipirinha of beers, it would be more interesting with twice as much alcohol and more bitterness.

330ml electric green bottle. If the summer of '12 was all about grapefruit, the fall is definitely lemon - well, that is, if you're not enraptured with all those actual seasonal Oktoberfests and pumpkin offerings, that is.

This beer pours a very cloudy, very, very pale straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, foamy white head, which leaves a decent array of bicycle chain lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of sweet, sugary lemonade, with only a slight wisp of grainy malt adding to this charade of actual beerness. The taste is more acidic lemon, of the Slurpee sort, the same echo of pale graininess from the aroma, and little else.

The carbonation is decent, in an agreeable, two-day old soda pop manner, the body a so-so medium weight, the sugary lemonade contributing more than it should, seemingly. It finishes like a nice quaff of the ol' lemon-ade should - tart, sugary, and fruity.

Meh - I know this is only half (ish) beer, but that half is surely forgotten, or overwritten, here. I like lemonade as much as the next guy, but not when it masquerades as a weak-ass beer alternative.

Can served into a Guinness pint glass in Ibiza, Spain. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a four finger head of fair cream and thickness; decent retention. Colour is a hazy lemon-yellow. Appealing for a 70 euro-cent budget beer.

Sm: Lemon, and barley. Usually these Spanish beers are overly malty, but that's not coming through in the aroma.

T: Lemon and barley form the body. Lime. Not syrupy or malty, but a bit watery - though less so than most Yank macros. It's built to be refreshing and in that aim it succeeds. It's balanced albeit simple.

Mf: Very wet, very light. Lemon tingles a bit. For what it is, it's nice.

Dr: As a .70 Euro budget refresher, it's pleasantly surprising. But don't expect a whole lot. I give it a D+ because as a beer it's not up to par, but it's excellent for what it is and what it costs.

Color very pale green or lemon odor, which suggests more concentrated lemon juice only freshly cut lemon slices, but preserving a small mouth, perhaps a bit too much. The lager that is the basis must be extremely low in taste because the body is still very watery, just a few hints of lemon, no sugar but not bitter unfortunately.

Hazy golden with tiny white head. Very sweet aroma with lemon notes.Ends sweet and refreshing. Lots and lots of foam. Aroma is strongly citric, but also has some hints of hops. Taste is sweetish and has lots of lemon in it, but it's not bad. Quite refreshing and good beer for the summer day."

It was actually solid, hardly a beer though. Kinda like the equalivalent to Wild Blue, but lemon. Wife who doesn't like beer. Loved it
