Format: a 330mL clear bottle with an okay macro label. After re-trying the pretty awful Miller Genuine Draft, I am petrified to see what happens when they try to mix in other flavours. I'm expecting it to be like CUB's abhorent Carlton Dry Fusion.

Appearance: pours out an extremely light yellow colour with an absolute explosion of carbonation continuing for ages. A good-looking white head pops up to two fingers before settling to a very creamy finger. Thick and sudsy lacing down the glass. As with the Draft, it looks decent, though I am a bit concerned about the explosive carbonation.

Aroma: the only aroma that is evident is an artificial lime flavour that actually smells like sherbert. Not exactly terrible, just a bit different.

Taste: I have read a lot about this beer not tasting that much like beer, but so what? Lambics don't really taste like beer, but are still very popular. If you are after a light spritzer this isn't too bad, though I will admit this still isn't my favourite beer. Again that sweet sherbert lime flavour. I do think it could get a bit sickly after a while.

Aftertaste: the sweetness from the lime is met by a bit of sourness on the finish.

Mouth feel: light to moderate in body with that big spritzing carbonation. Makes sense to me now as to why they wanted to up the carbonation so much.

Overall: less of a beer really so much as a low alcohol spritzer. Certainly not my type of beer nor my favourite, but I think this would be decent for those that would normally drink a shandy or a sweet ready-to-drink.

As a guy that likes all beer and will give it all a go, This stuff is ok. Kind of like Bud light lime. Not bad.

Appearance: Very light straw. One-finger, frothy head.
Smell: Lime, malt, some corn.
Taste: Slight maltiness. Tangy and fairly genuine lime. Slight, but tolerable, corn astringency. Reasonably dry finish. High carbonation.
Overall: Refreshing, light beer. Nothing more, nothing less. Pretty good for the style.
