I really don’t know why I’m reviewing this…I know I won’t like it. Still, it’s free beer, so what the hell.

A: Very pale yellow with a fizzy, white head. Looks a little greasy, the body sucking down the foam to leave no retention; very thin lacing. Typical BMC look.

S: Fake lime and vegetable grains, more like an air freshener than something I’d like to drink. Wheaty, corn-like aromas without an ounce of hops, just that Sprite-like fruit character maintaining the brightness. About what I expected.

T: Hell, the lime actually tastes fresh, even though it really doesn’t fit with a light lager. Leafy grain, like green tea, but mostly chewy corn and vegetal for the body (just like you’d expect from Bud). Finishes with some mineral/chemical aftereffects, not totally unappetizing. Not good, but pretty drinkable.

M: Thin and noticeably greasy – feels like a Bud. Settles with a little sour pucker from the lime, but it’s mostly just dull, frothy wateriness.

O: Fruit in beer seems to be something people do whenever they “don’t like beer” because all they’ve ever had is the fizzy yellow stuff; nothing against them (I feel like most beer geeks were BMC consumers first), but I’m not a fan. Imagine that?
