1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Diet lemon lime soda on the nose. Pours blonde with no head and looks very similar to high life. Bud light like flavor, cereal grains with lime like flavor. Skunky.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours clear and pale golden. Aroma of limes. Tastes of watery lime, sweet malt (rice?) and slighlty metallic. Not real good.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Has a light strawlike color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is a mixture of corn and lime. Flavor has no presence of hops or malt only a sweet tart lime candy taste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hopefully another short-lived beer fad. From a 12-oz clear bottle pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head. Aroma of bready malt and citrus hops with expected lime tartness. Finish is metallic and a mild lime zest aftertaste. Sorry A/B, but fresh squeezed lime juice is always better.

Not as bad as Miller Chill. Actually tastes lime juicy and is much sweeter than the aforementioned beer. A simile is the best way I can summarize this beer. BudLight Lime is to a Corona with lime as cherry lollipop is to a cherry.

12 ounce bottles poured into a shaker. Clear dark straw with lots of carbonation. Small white ring. The nose is like a blend of Sprite and Corona. It tastes like Corona with fake lime flavor. Seems to have more body that Bud Light. Tons of carbonation. Sweet grainy lime finish. I’ve had worse, but gosh, this is not good.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours light yellow with no head. Nose is lime and salt. Tastes like carbonated water with lime in it. Watery palate. Blech.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 AB’s newest attempt to replicate a successful brew. (shocktop, landshark anyone???). Over done with lime and thats all i can pick up on. I’d like to see unibroue make a ephemere lime. I have a feeling it would literally bend this over a barrell.

This is the best AB product I had recently. But that isn’t saying much... Smells of lemon/lime seltzer. Looks like carbonated piss. Tastes like pale lager with a lime added. The lime flavor is more natural than Miller Chill, it is thirst quenching and pleasant.

Stuff is fairly vile but is as advertised, somewhat refreshing, very much a tequila lime smell and lime taste, nothing else going on.
