The craft beer equivalent of a Corona with a lime squeezed out and tossed in, right? Or perhaps a more beer nerd approachable version of Bud Light Lime and the like. In any case, a macro-ish Mexican style lager done the micro way with a hint of lime on the top. Not much to look at - though what were you expecting? Pale straw with a little chill haze (actually quite cloudy for a lager) with barely any head... More of a thin, white collar.

The aroma is straight up key lime peels, cereal graininess, and a finishing touch of citrus spritz. Plain and simple, no holds barred, nothing to hide. It's simple, yes. Perhaps even a bit over simplified? Maybe. But then again, maybe not. It is just a Mexican lager with lime after all, and they've already hit the criteria for that. The difference here, is the added tartness of the key limes on the nose and the rustic effect from the heavy cereal grains. Nothing astonishing, but still well done.

The first sip follows along pretty much the same path; pale malt sweetness up front, followed by a good dose of limes and lime juice. The "key" lime portion can be found in the mild tartness spike that's received by each sip; jarring the taste buds just a bit without giving the impression of a sour or fruity beer, and rather just adding a sense of refreshment and authenticity, as though a real key lime had been squeezed and tossed in.

More dying lime juice and dry grains in the finish, along with a big helping of lager yeast, mildly bready in character. Super crisp and clean, ending just like any good lager would, with a palate that's pretty dry and begins begging for another sip as soon as the previous one is gone. Thin bodied, intended and fitting for the style, so I can't say much about that here.

I could imaging tossing back quite a few of these on a hot summer day. Maybe the reason I can imaging it so well is because I've actually already done it. Fire up the grill and keep these flowing like the Amazon. Nothing's gonna blow your socks off here, folks, but what you will find, is a refreshing lager that is purely made for mass quantity consumption... plus you don't have to worry about looking less crafty in front of your beer nerd friends.
