Can BC Liquor Stores Sampler Pack. Pours pale straw yellow with no head. Faint aroma of lime. Light bodied with subtle citrus notes. Went down like water, which is perhaps the point. Perhaps a higher score on a hot dusty day.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Leftover rating from last summer. 355ml can. Gold colour, surprisingly full white head with decent retention. It has a sweet lime scent, not much else. Grainy and dry in the mouth, subtle lime. Aftertaste is grainy. Light bodied. A bit less artificial tasting that BL Lime but not really that much more interesting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint at McMullanís in Waterloo. Purchased because I donít f***ing know why I guess I was drunk. Taps a straw yellow with a large white head. The aroma is surpisingly light on the lime, kind of light on anything really. Flavour is pale malts upfront met with some minor limey elements. I like that the lime aspects actually play sort of a background role here. Itís not oozing with obnoxious artificial lime flavouring. Actually almost enjoyable, and hey, if someone water-boarded me with it I still wouldnít talk. Too bad I just despise this moronic trend in shittily flavoured swill.

(Can) Sometimes you donít know why you are sampling a beer, other times you donít care. I suppose this would be the latter as, in recent years, Iíve tried to drink beers that are appealing and avoid the mass market stuff. But on the Plains, sometimes you become intrigued or confronted. A can of Big Rock Lime stared at my during the brief period of opening my brother-in-lawís fridge. Now I never expected much, and this didnít let me down on that front, but this would be my first of a lime-series macro... and I can honestly say it wasnít as bad as I had feared. Obviously lime-centric, but some watery grain base. It looks horrible with a straw-coloured body and an artificially large white frothy head - but you can drink a 6-pack of these to become hydrated. It is what it is.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A blonde lager with a thin white head. In aroma, a light mix of lime and malt. In mouth, a light adjunct laced lager with a sharp lime attack, mineral water, boring. Tasted Nov. 6 2009 at Ottawa Wine and Food Show.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Consumed in Bradís hotel room in Jasper. Super light gold, small white cap, dissipates to nothing. The aroma is a bizarre Tostidos Lime blended with perfume, odd malts something or another. Pretty much terrible. The taste is just brutal. Dry wheaty water with a weak plasticy lime, corn, bleck. This is hard to drink. Mouth feel is weak, dry and unwelcoming. Glad I split this free bottle and then drank free premium Scotch on his tab later on in the night.

Iím going against the grain here, but I think Big Rock got this one right. It seems that "lime lagers" are this yearís big fad, much like low carb beers were last year (or perhaps 2 years ago). Nearly every one Iíve tasted has been shit, with a saccharine soda-pop sweetness that is more cooler than beer. This beer is not sweet, nor does it come across as artificial. The pale malts are clean, and the aroma and flavour is more like lime zest (rind), and it does not knock your teeth out. The finish is very dry, keeping the palate fresh. This is by far the best take on a lime lager Iíve yet tried.

Why does such a terrific brewery degrade itself by making "keeping up with the joneses" swill like this? I just donít get it. This is typical terrible lime, just with a little bit of Big Rock touch in the great mouth feel and an actual average nose.

Pretty horrible, but better than Bud Light Lime. Tastes chemically and fake. Light beer taste is gross. Overall, would not get again.
