It pours watery yellow, with a petite soapy head that dissapated rapidly, much like Oakland Raiders playoffs in 2014. It had the taste of fake limes and malts, with no much of any other taste. Went down super smooth, left the palate wet, and was not filling. No edge, light body, and a lime aftertaste.

Heh, another one of those newfangled lime beers.

Pours a flaccid yellow color with lots of carbonation and little to no head into my glass.

Smell is mainly lime seltzer mixed with hints of sweet malt/adjunct.

Lime seltzer mixed with sweet malt/adjunct is what I get from the taste. Very soda-like as well. Yuck.

Mouthfeel? Lingering lime and thin, grainy malt. Typical light beer characteristics.

Don't even bother. You know how bad lime seltzer tastes in beer.

12 oz can in to DFH snifter (for a laugh)

A - Piss yellow with a big white head. Looks like every light lager.

S - Lime and skunk. Sweet fake lime. Like sprite mixed with a light lager. The artificial lime aroma covers the skunky light lager scent. Crisp.

T - Blech. Sweet artificial lime in the front with a horrifying finish of an awful light lager that has been tainted somehow. This isn't how you make a light lager taste good. So much worse than a regular Blue or Blue Light. The only positive is that if it is cold enough it can taste like lime seltzer for a moment, before the skunk kicks in.

M - Thin and very carbonated. Run of the mill for the style.

O - This is bad. This is silly. Stop it. My friend loves these because he says they taste nothing like beer, which he hates.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and doesn’t leave very much lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a lot of lime along with some light malts and adjuncts.

T: The taste starts out with a sweet lime flavors, but not much after that. There’s a very thin malt character and almost not hops presence. Theirs is some balance but that’s only because there isn’t much to balance out. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, very light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Not very flavorful, goes down easily and not filling at all since there isn’t much to the beer beyond the lime flavor, very mild kick, this is definitely one of the lightest of light beers, but overall it’s not very good.

Pours a bright golden yellow with a ton of carbonation rising to the top. There some loose, soap-like head that quickly fizzles away. The nose smells like grains and artificial limes. The flavor is sweet, grainy, and finishes with a faint lime flavor. There's something chalky and powdery about the flavor that's off putting. The mouthfeel is very light and very crisp.

This is not a good beer. The other light lagers with lime are better. I definitely won't have this again.

Side-by-side with Bud Light Lime. For science!

It looks nearly identical, a crystal-clear light gold. The color is very slighly darker than the BLL. The head pours the same, though, pure white and dead within 20 seconds, no lacing whatsoever. As with BLL, 1.5 because at least it started with something. Bubbles cling to the glass until it's gone.
The lime smells natural enough with grains supporting. The only detectable difference is that dusty grains come out just a little more than in the Bud. Exactly the same, though, is the clean lemony fresh dish detergent that comes out after a few minutes.
As light as it gets, which is expected. Apparently there's something about macros with lime that makes them watery and slick at the same time. Weird.

Taking Labatt Blue Light into a clear bottle and adding lime flavor to it, let's follow suit we have to compete with Bud Light Lime, Miller Chill. Who thought of this, forget real lime wedges, let's just add the lime flavoring before it's bottled. Clear bottle pours into a Hoegaarden glass with a pale straw yellow color and quickly fleeting fizzy white head. Aroma has some faint background cereal grains, with lime peel citrus fruit pretty match masking any possible hops/malt tones. Flavor is water mass produced tasteless unoffensive lager with lime flavor added. Again much like adding actual lime to carbonated water, maybe a splash of Labatt Blue for color. Watery texture, high carbonation brings on lime burps. Drinkability I could drink one or two but give me a Dos Equis/Pacifico with a twist of lime if I'm going for mass produced imported beer with lime. I just don't see the point of these breweries making every variation of the same beer just to take up shelf space from brewers who actually deserve it.
