Poured into a tumbler glass.

Look: Clear light golden color with a white head that recedes very fast leaving absolutely nothing on top nor any lacing.

Aroma: Light lime zest, in a sort of mechanical, artificial sort of way. As it warms, it really does start to smell more like lemon Pledge.

Taste: Slightly metallic with sweet adjuncts such as corn or rice with a covering lime blanket that has notions of artificial sweeteners.

Mouthfeel: Light and watery.

Overall: As a vessel for getting a buzz, it's not awful. The sum is better than all if its parts. The lime is very artificial.

All I wrote in my notebook on this one, is that it tastes like dish soap mixed with bud light. Smells of a lime jelly rancher. I hope to never drink one again and I wish the same upon you.
