It sure is hot outside so i reckon this is a good bet. Canned 2021/05/24

Pours a med large frothy 1.5 finger head with moderate retention, fair lacing, mostly clear pale to straw color

Nose brings some sweet malt, little cereal grain and corn, nice juicy lime and citrus, good balance

Taste light but flavorful, first up is mild corn and sweet cereal malt, that quickly gives way to a sweet key lime juice with only a little tartness, general citrus, my brain wants to get salt but it never comes and I think that would be a nice addition, mild creamy and soft lager, dry finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, med fizzy slight prickly carb

Overall Def a nice beer to drink when it's hot, a touch of salt on the back end like a gose would seal the deal

So, had to let this one open up a bit. First couple of rushed glugs and swishes presented a pretty typical light corn lager with significant "limeyness"...think Bud light with lime...not pleasant. But not a fair assessment either. That "corniness" almost disappears, and suddenly it comes across as quite balanced. The lime now doesn't seem an out of place cover for a typical AAL. It is extremely light but not watery. SUPER refreshing. Off the charts drinkability. SUPER crushable.

16oz can into a pint glass. Canned 5/24/21, so 6-7 weeks old.

Looks good in the glass. Almost crystal clear pale yellow body with good carbonation. Small white head shrinks to a ring and faint covering, only a few wisps of lacing.

Not much of an aroma, just a little lime.

On tasting, well this takes me back to drinking lager & limes in the olde countrye. Very clean, light, refreshing, and just the right level of lime. Nicely balanced.

Mouth just about medium, finish lime.

Overall, clean, refreshing, easy drinking beer. Says it's a corn lager on the can, but there is no corny taste, so that's a plus. Very good light lager.

Clear golden body. Mild tart lime juice, which carries the beer all the way through. Malt is very light and mild, and a touch of tropical hop bite balances it out a bit. Lighter bodied, crisp and strangely super drinkable. Goes down fast.

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.

Serving type: can

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

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.

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.
