This beer has a thin, oily feel, and an overwhelmingly heavy cloying sweetness. I was very disappointed by it. Wouldnít drink it again.

tgncc (3090) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 12, 2010
Amber color, white head. The aroma is yeasty, caramel, fruity. The flavor is citrus, toasted malts, zety carbonation. The finish is sweet, light citrus hops. Medium in body. Ok. Makes a decent lawnmower beer.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - APR 11, 2010
Bottle pours a clear amber body with a medium offwhite head that leaves some minor lacing. Lots of carbonation bubbles in the body. Aroma is weak, with hints of lime and wheat malt. Light body is briskly carbonated. Taste has a some lime and wheat malt. Drinkable, but disappointing.

bubbleflubber (2156) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Pours golden-amber into the glass, with a small frothy head that leaves mild lace. The nose is of corn and stale grains. Flavors are underdone, some macro corn oversees the whole thing, unfortunately. There are stale grains, a bit of yeast, and maybe a hint of lime... nothing superb whatsoever. Not the best offering of the Blue Moon line. Boring mouthfeel and man, whatís with all the corn notes?

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours copper with a foamy eggshell-colored head. Aroma is light wheat, mild hops, and slight citrus, not unlike Budweiser with citrus added. Flavor is sweet malt and sugar, but whereís the lime? Iím not getting anything here. Crisp, smooth, and below average.

This is horrible beer!! I love blue moon and decided to try this for a light spring mix. Boy was i disappointed. it takes like skunky PBR with budlight lime mixed in. I will never try another flavor except the orginal.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Amber. Clear. Little head. Light sweet malt and dusty aroma. Flavor matches. Canít find a speck of lime to save my life. Not good.
