Serving: Can, from the can
Served: April 2013

Going from memory on this one.

Appearance: I had this from the can, but a friend of mine poured three into a German Ma├čkrug and went to town. Looks like a sort of sickly pale yellow. Not very appealing. No head to speak of (but is it even supposed to have a head?).

Smell: Smells heavily of lime, with a bit of 'beery' bitterness mixed in for good measure.

Taste: This one isn't supposed to taste like 'beer' so I won't even go there. For what it is, it isn't bad. It's basically like a cheap version of Corona and Lime, with the cheap beer and lime already mixed together. Except you don't need to pay import prices on this one! Yay! Tastes like lime juice with some beer bitterness thrown in to keep you sucking down on those cans.

Mouthfeel: Mega-carbonated, kind of like a soda. Makes you forget that you're drinking something pretty thin.

Overall: For what it is, this does the job. I'd rather be drinking one of these than the traditional Corona and Lime during a party or something, primarily because the effect is basically the same, and this one is cheaper. A good party drink if you're having lots of people over who don't like beer-beer. Not something I'd pick up on my own, but for what it is, it's refreshing and dangerously drinkable (but not in a traditional 'beer' kind of way- more like a soda or hard-lemonade that's bitter sort of way).

Overall, a well crafted beer for what it is. It is a very refreshing beer. THe balance of sweet malt and lime is good. Neither overpower. The aftertaste of lime is also a nice touch. I was happily surprised by the brew. It will be good on a very hot summer day.
