12oz bottled 107 days ago poured into a can shaped pint glass at fridge temp 4.2% ABV. The beer pours bright very light yellow with short lived nearly white head. The aroma is a mix of adjunct fermentables, yeast and lime. The taste is very light with almost no "beer", only the mild sweetness and flavor of the lime. Mouthfeel is very thin, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a hint of oily/buttery finish, but again it's masked by the lime. Overall, a beer for folks who don't like beer. Live and let live, I say.

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.
