Again, this is something I would never try again. Just had a mix six pack and ouch these things are bad.

Drank from the bottle, so I can't comment on looks. This was my first "beer" and to me, is a good gateway beer for people who haven't developed a taste for that beer taste but want to.
Smells like a beer, plain and simple, but with lemon and citrus notes.
Tastes almost like a beer, but the beer flavor is drowned out by the citrusy lemon mixed in. Making for a more sour than bitter taste. moderate carbonation. Good for a warm summers day.

It tastes like a normal beer, but with a lemon twist. Good for those who want to get into drinking beers but haven't yet acquired the taste.

THis beer tastes like wet sock water and lemon peels. You would have to be in a pretty desperate state for this to be refreshing. I kept taking drinks expecting it to get better not believing it was as horrible as it seemed at first taste, sadly it is.

Hot day outside refreshment. the most lemony beer I've ever had. Didn't think I'd like it, ended up loving it.

A very refreshing beer to have in the summer because of the citrus flavor.

Definitely a good summer beer. Outside on a porch great, crisp beer to have. Otherwise, nothing special but not a bad beer at all.

Not bad for drinking in the heat trying to not get sloshed quickly.
