look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

A: crystal clear; medium gold in color; less than a 1 finger white head that fizzed like soda and receded very quickly to a thin collar; no lacing;

S: not especially aromatic; lime is prevalent and seemed relatively natural at first whiff; a few seconds later, the lime comes through as artificial; malt and hops were noticeable at first, but not in subsequent whiffs;

T: artificial lime is all you get; no bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: the brewery says it's natural lime flavor; that's not what comes through;

Worst beer I’ve ever had. Tasted like a slightly malty diet 7-UP.

Pretty good for a light beer. On the sweeter side obvious lime flavor. Nothing sophisticated really about it. It is what it is.

I didn't think it would be good but I was surprised it was. More or less tastes like you put a lime in a bud light.
