Can. Courtesy of Immy at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. Pours piss gold. Fizzy white head. Aroma is not as terrible as expected, though still of low quality. Corn, stale fruit, grains and sugar. Taste is sweet with more corn and fruit notes and hints of cereal throughout. Body is light and very fizzy. Ends with more cereal, hints of stale lime, sugary notes and corn. Thanks Tim!. I think...

Shared by Immy at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. Well it pours like a light yellow. Nothing impressive or even decent about it. I would never recommend this to anyone. Mad props to dkachur for using Skanky in a review.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 Shared by Immy at his recent Backyard Throwdown. Gee, thanks. Pours a clear anemic looking yellowish green color. Aroma of dirty, acrid malts. Taste is sweet sugary lime with grain and diet cola. Medium bodied. Skanky. 3/1/2/1/7

Clear deep golden. Plastic lime candy aromas. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Has a high-grade plastic flavor, one of the most heady glasses of plastic I’ve drunk.

I found a 12oz green plastic bottle of this buried in my brother’s beer cellar. I think this was acquired from the 2005 RBSG in Montreal, so it is a 3 year old bottle in all fairness. Aroma has some notes of citric lime as well as some mint present. I definitely detect some fuselage, though. Not as god awful as I expected, though. Transparent golden body with no head at all. Fusel flavors dominate with boiled vegetables. Bitter, harsh, swampy, and revolting. A literal drainpour. No hops, no lime. Terrible.

Drank in the world’s first ever Blind Lime Beer Tasting, including Bud Light Lime, Michelob Ultra-Lime Cactus, Miller Chill, and Steelback Tango. This was second best in my book, though ended up losing overall. Light foam cap. Salty, with minerals aroma. Nasty, garbage-like flavor, with minor metal yeast, no lime. Not too offensive.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Well, I did it. Maybe it was the dark dust collected on the top of the can, maybe it was the leak on the bottom, or maybe it’s that soul-crushing sense of self abuse, but somewhere along the line, I realized that I went too far. I went too far in my quest to experience the beast. I may have done irreversable damage to myself. It takes two to tango, but this, this thing, leads you down a dark path, as you dance. It insults you with its unimpressive aroma of garbage, and fuel, then it mocks you with the sight of what you might have known, a minor hint of actual lime in the finish. My greatest fear is that I will now be dubbed, "Dances with Steelback." Oh, what a fate, what a fate indeed.....No Steelback, no. I refuse to submit, I shall recover. I shall over-come, I shall never surrender to Frankie D’angelo But I am glad I could experience this thing before it ’dances’ its way further into long-forgotten Beer Store back-shelf obscurity.
