Sample shared @ RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever brought this! Whale watch! Deep golden pour with a small white head. Nose is overwhelmed with a fairly artificial apple concentrate aroma. Little else. Flavor is similarly bizarre. Slightly tart apple and general sweet grain and cardboard. Spritzy and syrupy at the same time. A bit of a chore. Not as bad as some others in the series, I guess. Still, not good.

Big ol’ 22oz can that my buddy bought 2 Octobers ago while camping. Holy god is this awful. Difficult to even swallow. Chemical, intense, cloying, artificial apple and "spices". Is there bud lite in this too? I feel bad for the people that resort to drinking this. Crack is a hell of a drug.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of apple juice and jolly rancher apple flavor. Crystal clear amber, headless. Jollly rancher flavor, tangy and sweet, somewhat noticeable fusel alcohol. Medium body, easy carbonation, warm. Rougth edges but enjoyable, not really beer, but no one expects it to be.

Little red bull size can offered at a tasting. Huge thanks to Eugene for helping me with this whale. Rating from notes. Pours an apple juice appearance with no head. Huge green apple aroma. Hard candy aroma and flavor. So sweet. So So So sweet. I’m going to continue to say that these are not beers, but there are technicalities with everything these days. Tastes like an oversweetened apple iced tea, and not a great one, with intense cinnamon apple. First and last of this one.

Little can courtesy of my brother Matt; consumed over ice (cubed) from a red Solo cup. While playing cornhole. In Indiana. ’Murica. Aroma: Green Jolly Rancher candy green apple hooch. Appearance: Caramel color (added) with a fizzy white head that’s gone in a blink. Flavor: Pretty much matches the nose; fairly tart green apple candy up front with a boozy, backyard hooch thing going on. Sweet sweet sweet and keeps on "giving". Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: This is pretty low brow, but I finished my can. Still not worth a revisit.

Can shared at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15.
Light golden with a moderate off white cap.
Nose is sweet apple pie, apple pulp, sugar.
Taste comprises sweet notes, sugar, apple pie - much the same as the nose.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close.
Too sweet, carries the booze off well, if you like sweet boost juice this could be right up your alley!

From the 8 fl.oz. can. Pale yellow. headless pour. Aroma of apple, sweetness, and booze. Light body. The taste also brings out the apple characters like a cider. Except for the booze underbelly this would probably fall under the cider category.

This is my favorite Lime-A-Rita next to the original. It to me has a sort of an apple wine taste. It is sweet but to me it balances the weird beer tastes perfectly with the sweetness. Recommended!
