A strong twang, with a smooth watery after taste. Could be better.

Taste Rating in Words: That first time that the pickle juice and lemonade mix hits your tongue.

From notes taken 12/01/16:

Clear straw gold, extra pale. White half-fizzy head of moderate retention. Smells like a shandy, hints of lime juice. Lime juice is more distinct but less strong on palate. Prickly pear or similar cactus could be there somewhere, I suppose. I mean there’s a slight cucumber taste to it. But really the only other detectable quality is a lightly grassy/bready basic lager. Not even any hops to speak of, it’s all lost in the lime if anything. It’s okay on its own, would be better with some chips and salsa. Light-bodied, spritzy as can be.

Pours a light yellow with almost no head at all. Smell and taste is sweet ( must be the cactus) a little hint of lime but well hidden. Mouthful is too watery for me. Overall not a bad drink but not one I would really want again.

Drank straight from the bottle at friends house. This beer was light and refreshing and surprisingly the lime addition worked fine in this beer. Could have had a few more with no trouble thanks to the light ABV.

Lime cactus pours a copper color with little head. Aroma is lime and fake. Taste is fake chemically with hints of lime. Flat. Overall not good.

Yellow, clear, fizzy, with a slight head. The aroma is like a lime soda, not a beer. The taste is moderately dry, very fruity, and not much in the way of malt or hops. It's much more of a fruit drink than a beer.

This is more than what Michael Jackson called a gulp of wet air. It is wet air with lime & "something" else flavoring. An airhead brew.

On a hot day, when the beer is really cold, it tastes and feels great. It is a very light beer but the lime is very present and refreshing. As for the cactus aspect, ?????? Nothing craft or complex about it but highly palatable.
