Pours an extremely pale straw color with a short wispy white head that settles into mere nothingness

The aroma is of sweet lime. Similar to what you would find in a powdered lime-aide mix. Some light grain aroma as well.

The taste is of lime. It's quite strong and not as sweet as in the aroma. The lime covers up a lot of the flaws in the base beer. The vegetal flavors seem masked and only a light grainy flavor comes through. Tastes like a lime spritzer.

The feel is light with fizzy carbonation. Sweet on the palate but finishes a tad dry. Might work well as a palate cleanser.

I like it better than Bud Light. The lime does add a refreshing character to it. The lime flavor can get cloying so I would only drink as a palate cleanser.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

The beer pours a very transparent straw yellow; almost no visible carbonation and leaves no lacing in the glass.

This drink is all lime in aroma and flavor. Almost candy-like as it doesn’t have a natural lime tartness/sourness; it’s a touch syrupy. No malt or hop character at all.
