Do talking frogs like "natural lime flavor"?

I think this is a good beer to have after working in the hot Florida sun. Goes down smooth and easy.

From a 12oz bottle, vintage denoted as 22241VM1544. Served in a cervoise because fancy.

Pours an effervescent, pale honey-gold with a scant finger of fizzy suds. The head doesn’t stay around long enough to get much of a look at, just leaving the narrowest possible collar and a super-slippery film of what we may refer to as ‘lacing.’

Nose is bright and citrusy and otherwise has a faint cereal character. Aroma of lime, just as advertised.

Taste is corny and soapy with tart-tacky citrus. Tasting the titular lime, Corn Pops breakfast cereal and seltzer water.

Feel is slick and soapy, medium-thin bodied with fizzy, seltzer-like carbonation. In fact, each sip finishes not entirely unlike lime-flavoured seltzer water.

Overall, absolutely not utterly vile. It’s what the kids are drinking or, at least, it's what one of them left in my fridge.

24oz can, poured in a glass.

On the pour thre fingers of head form, with some retention off the bat, but after a moment, instead of a rocky head forming, it got fizzy and dissipated. Body is a completely clear gold. For a light lime lager, this is looking real fake.

Aroma is mostly the same lime flavor that comes on hint of lime chips, which I don't hate, probably because of the "real lime peels" used. In the back there is a carbonic acid aroma like generic seltzer water, with a very light bud light funk. Smells blandly acidic with a "hint of lime".

Taste follows the aroma, but admittedly loses the off flavors. Still however those is very bland and would probably be most enjoyable after a strong malt liquor while outside in very hot weather. This is about as flavorful as a lime truly, but with a slight and light reminder that this is beer with a very vague malt character at the end.

Feel is the only decent category here. It is drinkable like regular bud light, but it almost comes off as even more watery. Despite that the lime flavoring amd possible sweetener makes the finish long amd a bit syrupy. Meh.

Overall the only reason to drink this is if you can't afford leinie's summer shandy, but you desperately need something different than the cheap lagers in the 24oz cooler at the gas station.

Look: Light haze, like looking through a deeply familiar, cozy mist rolling through the family farmstead.

Smell: Rivaled only by traversing through the fields of Tecomán on a warm day at peak lime season.

Taste: Like plucking its carefully-blended native fruit off of a tree and sipping its gently-fermented contents through a frosted, platinum-lined metal straw.

Feel: Silky. Soft. Comfortable. Horse blanket on a frigid autumn morning. Nostalgic and pure; truly joyous! Unmistakable and irreplaceable.

Overall: The perfect beer. Overlooked, but likely not for long. Many are behind on this one, but it will have its day and when it does I do genuinely hope Budweiser (keep an eye on this beermaker) can meet customer demand.
