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.

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.
