473 mL can from the LCBO; coded Feb 12 2021 and served slightly chilled.

Pours a hazy pale yellow colour, generating one finger of soapy, foamy white head that collapses within a minute or two. A thick, creamy-looking collar is left behind, along with some scant lacing - looks as I'd expect for a cucumber lime mojito beer, and definitely smells as I'd expect, too. The lime and mint are easily discerned, while the cucumber is somewhat more subtle; beyond that, I'm mostly just getting sugary apple juice and maybe a faint whisper of actual malt.

It's not great, but it's honestly better than I was expecting - it's on the sweet side, but the other flavours are relatively well balanced. Sugary at the forefront, with lime-ade and apple juice leading into hints of mint and cucumber. Finishes with more lime-ade, table sugar sweetness and a light, fresh mintiness lingering into the aftertaste. Light-medium in body, with moderately lively carbonation that briskly agitates the palate, providing a nice contrast from its fluffy, fruity soft-drink like texture.

Final Grade: 3.35, a B-. Moosehead's Cucumber Lime Mojito is better than their cherry mimosa IMO, but your mileage may vary - at least if you really dislike mint (or if you really like cherries). The cherry one was way too sweet and totally one-dimensional, while this is merely a bit too sweet, and features a trio of flavours that you may or may not find complementary. I didn't mind my glass, and could force down another without much of a fuss, but I probably would've liked this more if it weren't so sugary. Try it if you really like mojitos.

Cucumber-lime is a wicked good combination, but I'm gonna hafta nope this one. The CL under performs and the whole thing comes across like some odd sort of cotton candy. Too sweet, not enough lime sourness. I wouldn't even give this much credit as a patio novelty. Pass.
