Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a clear bright yellow body with no lacing. Nose of lime. Taste of citrus. Very thin feel and overall an unremarkable beer with a somewhat refreshing quality.

On tap:
Nice head, though tap appeared a bit gushing. Might have led to a slightly flat feel. Sustained uniform fluffy stark white head leaves a few nice streaks.

Nose is heavy on the lime, which is good, in th sense it's a lime-infused beer. Little sweet but not sugary - resembles a lime soda to a degree. Randomly a little orange comes in the smell as well, though the taste sticks to a lemon-lime soda. The soda analogy doesn't hold water when it comes to sweetness or carbonation, but the non-sugar notes are similar.

There's only a light grain and bitter note underneath to attempt to remind you it's a beer, but it's not enough. Actually these notes somewhat distract from just letting this be a fruit beer (or radler-like).

Some interesting individual aspects that alone seem ok, but clash when brought together, to me.

12 ounce can into lager glass, best before 7/22/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime peel, sea salt, cracker, bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of lime, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime peel, sea salt, cracker, bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness and slight citrus tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime peel, sea salt, cracker, bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of lime, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a great fruited pale lager! All around great robustness and balance of lime, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and never watery feeling for the ABV; with perfect balance of lime/lager character. A very enjoyable offering.
