I prefer this to regular cougar bait. Good flavor, not overpowered with lime. Really nice beer.

12 ounce can, the date on the bottom of the can was smudged so I only know it was canned on the 25th day of some month in 2017. Seeing when this brew was added to BA, I'm guessing it was canned in May or June 2017. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with maybe a half inch white head. Head retention is OK, not much lacing. The brew smells like key lime/lime peel and bready/grainy malt. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, nice amount of citrusy/tart lime noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's refreshing and easy to drink. This would probably be great on a hot summer day! I liked this brew, hopefully Country Boy will make this again for next summer as I think this is better than the regular version. $1.99 for a single can.

Get your speedos ready, your suntan lotion handy and you beach chair all set up, Cougar Bait is going on vacay! The flagship blond ale of Country Boy sees a summertime development as the taste of key limes infiltrate the clean yet simplistic American blond ale.

Key Lime Cougar Bait leaps right out with those tangy key lime scents. Citrsy, bready and lightly hopped, the citrus perfume carries a backbone of sourdough and fresh baked bread in taste while settling down with a hazy straw appearance.

Designed for utmost refreshment, the wheat, lightly fruity ale carries a taste of light grapefruit and orange, layered on a pastry crust even before the key limes reaches its pinnacle. Mild hopping brings a balancing bitterness to the finish with a light sprucy taste that's suggestive of gin and tonic or mojito.

Light in body but given a creamy texture from its wheat foundation, the ale lives up to its crisp, clean and highly refreshing promises. A brief aftertaste of sourdough diminishes but the bright flavor of those key limes persist pleasantly afterwards. Key Limes help the Country Boys in making Cougar Bait the beer that its always wanted to be.
