Light yellow color with small white cap.

Aroma primarily of a heavier sort of West Indian Lime with a bit of sweet malt peaking out.

Taste on entry is lime of a much lighter sort, Key West maybe, carried by a malt base but lime is the dominant flavor. Hop level is low enough I can't taste it.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

It might be more accurate to call this a lime flavored lager rather than a Pilsner due to the low hop presence. That said it's a relative flawless lightly flavored lager with with more body than the brewer's description implies. The malt sweetness is indeed subtle but there's enough to offset lime tartness creating a refreshing, easy drinking brew.

Look and head are consistent with a good pilsner. The nose is huge tart lime and is quite dominant. Taste is a lot lighter than the aroma and seems to be a touch watery. Overall decent beer but lacks just a bit of pilsener complexity.

L: bright gold with a slight haze permeated with streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white cap with fair retention

S: Lime dominates the aroma and has a faint solventy gasoline note

T: Lime is the big player on the palate and it does have a slight solvent note

F: The body is medium light and the carbonation is medium high

O: Its a refreshing drink but not enough like a beer

Lime Pilsner brewed by Uinta Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.30% This Czech Pilsner pours out a nice golden amber color with a thin white head. There is some real thin lacing to this Pilsner. The head an lacing go away fast, not saying that is a bad thing. The smell is rich with lime citrus, grains and malts. Reminds me of summer. There are some mild hop bitterness in the smell of this brew as well. Now for the taste, it is Bold with lime citrus, and mild milts and grains. The lime is a real nice note to this brew. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. The body of Lime Pilsner is a solid medium, real easy drinking brew. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a nice balance to it. There is also a lot of good flavors, to this brew. Lime Pilsner goes down nice and smooth. The mouth feel of Lime Pilsner is Lime, Crisp ,Smooth , Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a solid 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Uinta Brewing Company, did a good job with this one.
If you are a fan of lime , you should look this brew up.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy gold color with a small white head. The aroma is all lime. The taste is bitter lime with some hops.

Lime Pilsner pours a clear straw like color, with not much head. Weak but citrus filled aroma. Taste is a very nice noticeable creamy, crisp, malty backbone, with good hints of fresh limes, that finishes not too sweet. Good body and feel. Overall, a very drinkable, nice summer time lime filled beer.

Pale yellow body, a little hazy; thin yet sticky, white head. Smells like key lime pie. Fruity, lime flavor with notes of light cereal grains; tart; some metallic bitterness. Medium body; rather dry and acidic.

Well, the beer is okay but does let the lime dominate things instead of subtly enhancing the pilsner base. The strong lime character leaves a somewhat odd, off-putting aftertaste to things, too. Perhaps served ice cold on a hot summer day would be the best setting for this beer...
