I've had lime flavored tortilla chips on numerous occasions. This taste like that. Unfortunately, it's not the same in liquid form. But it's nice. The look is mediocre. The head is thin and doesn't hold. Smells like it taste. Refreshing. Citrus is apparent. Very light and easy to drink. But if you enjoy hops and fall/winter beers like I do, this isn't your beer.

Numero Uno is Flying Dog's spin on Corona or Bud Light Lime. It's fun to see them experimenting, and I'm sure there is quality in this beer, but it hits the intended mark a little too well. Pale yellow in color, thin in body, no lacing (no real head that I remember). The subtlest hint of the agave nectar it was brewed with added some weight and body to the taste and mouthfeel, and the lime zest added after the brewing process adds a bright note.
It's ok.

A good one indeed. It is pale yellow with a color very similar to white wine, but with a robust head. It really has many wine-like characteristics. The smell is fruity and hoppy, and the flavour has very fruity, apple and pear, notes. This is offset with some woody tones.

Bottle from Bert's
Slightly hazy light golden color with a small bubbly white head. Lime overpowers the nose for me. Flavor follows but I can find some light bready malt a bit of salt them more lime that lingers in the finish. Pretty easy to drink if you are used to drinking Corona with a lime wedge although less skunky. Not bad.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a bright and clear straw color with a one finger creamy white head that retains long after the pour

S- a bit skunky on the nose up front, followed by some toasted cracker malt, lime zest and a bit of honey sweetness

T- toasted malt turned slightly sweet, perhaps form the agave up front, the lime zest is subtle but definitely noticeable and continues into a dry toasted finish

M- medium body with moderate spritz carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp smooth finish, high drinkability

O- easy drinking summer beer that goes down quick

Yellow with some good carbonation. Smell is of a sweet Cerveca with some straw - very good. Taste is above average. Light and bubbly.

Flying Dog "Numero Uno"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "252A15"
$2.29 @ Total Wine & More, Claymont, DE

On the surface "Numero Uno" appears to be just another golden ale, but the addition of lime zest and Agave nectar truly livens it. It's a little bit sweet, and just a little bit citrusy, giving it a kind of see-saw effect. Fortunately, the lime tends to appear in the finish, helping to balance it a bit... although it still remains a touch sweet.
