I'm not too good to say that I enjoy a crisp Bud Light every now and then. This stuff is pretty foul, though. All I can taste is an unconvincing lime syrup bringing too much sweetness to an otherwise light & refreshing beer. You'd do much better to add a splash of real lime juice (or even the bottled stuff) to some regular Bud Light. Yes, it's a little more effort, but it is well worth it on a hot summer evening.

25 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 12/7/2017. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart lime, lemon, and citrus zest; with lighter notes of cracker, white bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Okay aromas with lime and light malt/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lime, lemon, and citrus zest; with lighter notes of cracker, white bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness and citrus tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart lime, lemon, citrus zest, cracker, white bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Solid robustness and good balance of lime and malt/earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/tartness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/tartness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Pretty thin, but not watery feeling. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a decent flavored light lager. All around solid robustness and good balance of lime and malt/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Not bad at all, balanced lime and clean light lager flavors. Nothing wrong with it; a bit artificial feeling, but not offensive. An enjoyable offering.
