Used to drink it with some frequency while lived in DF. Golden color with a fluffy head that disappeared completely right away.
Light aroma of malt with predominant lemon notes.
Taste follows nose, a zesty lemon flavor with malt and some adjuncts. Almost no bitterness and no aftertaste.
Watery body with medium carbonation.
Tasteless beer, on the positive side its lemon twist feeling can be great on the beach and a thirst or spicy quencher.

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams glass. This review is for with and without lime added. Pours a nice medium gold color but with almost no head. No lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, with a hint of bread. After adding lime, it smells much more citrusy. Go figure. Taste is almost non-existent, with very little by way of malt, hops, or anything else. With no lime, there is almost no flavor and I now understand why it comes with lime. Even lime doesn't really bring much to the party. But it IS better. Has a decent mouthfeel, smooth with a hint of carbonation. It does do well with spicy Mexican food when served with a lime, so it's got that going for it.
