How do you make a beer that's even worse than Bud Light? How, you ask me, dear random internet reader? Well, you take you Bud Light and SHOVE IT FULL OF LIME FLAVOR! Wait, you're not done yet, put even more lime in it. Keep on putting more lime flavor till you can't taste the beer for the lime. And that's it, you now have a beer that somehow manages to be the worse than Bud Light, because you know what's worse than no flavor? Bad flavor. Not just bad flavor, but so much of it that it overpowers all the others tastes, all two of them, in Bud Light.

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.
