3.85/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is crystal clear whitish yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left a narrow collar around the edge and a thin film of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of white grape and lime are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of white grape and lime.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a decent amount of aroma and flavor for a light lager.

4.14/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16oz can poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear pale golden color with a one-finger foamy white head that has short retention

S- lime, toasted grains, corn, honey, citrus zest, hint of floral hops

T- clean and crisp up front with a lightly tart hit of lime, followed by some mellow malty sweetness, with a hint of corn coming through. The finish gives just a trace of citrusy hops, with some pithy lime and sweet malt on the finish

M- light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp finish

O- super refreshing and crushable, the lime provides just enough of a tartness to boost the flavor and make this a flavorful yet easy drinking light lager

3.91/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From can - 5/20/20.
L: Pour with a thin white head, about an inch, that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Hazy, pale yellow in color. Little to no lacing.
S: Aroma an interesting mix of bready yeast, dry hops, and lime - pretty much as advertised.
T: Pretty light on the palate, with the corn sweetness and lime popping the most. There is a bit of the yeast/bread in the background, but no noticeable hop flavor.
F: Crisp, light, refreshing mouthfeel.
O: Utterly crushable and a perfect reflection of its name.

4.03/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a lightly hazy pale straw yellow in color with a moderate amount of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint pale yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy sudsy foamy bright white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering a little more than 80% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready + grainy malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts and a light amount of corn adjunct sweetness. Slightly heavier than light aromas of freshly squeezed lime citrus and a hint of lager yeast. Light aromas of citrus/lime + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready + grainy malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts and a light amount of corn adjunct sweetness. That is followed by very light flavors of lager yeast and light to moderate flavors of freshly squeezed lime citrus. Finally there is a light flavor of citrus/lime + herbal hops which imparts a hint of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving a very light lingering fresh lime citrus.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol, a nice clean + crisp refreshing mouthfeel, and a touch of lime to sweeten it slightly - perfect beer for after a long 8.4 mile run in 90 F weather with a 73 dew point. Definitely sessionable and definitely a beer that I would have another.
