2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
June 2008: Green 275ml bottle, best before Dec 2008. Drank on a boiling hot afternoon in Tobago on my hotel room balcony.
This beer doesn’t pretent to be anything else except a refreshing low alcohol shandy. It does it very well.
Pale lager colour, no head though.
Lemonade and Lime smell, as you would expect by its name.
Overal not bad, it was what I needed at the time and my score is obviously more subjective than objective because of the circumstances of the review.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is a mix of skunkiness and lime. The flavor is lemon/lime liquor, spritzy and heavy carbonation. Not much in the way of any beer flavor, not very good.

Bottle. Okay, call it a guilty pleasure, but this is tasty stuff. Pure lime - more like soda than beer (and ABV is low enough that it may qualify).

Yes, is a shandy; limeat that. Better than a typical fruit beer. Much lime ade in this stuff and it comes across as friendly. Wew, I don’t think I can handle the 1.2%, eheh. Fun easy fruity pop flavors. Enjoyable fruit. On the label, water is the main ingredient in this brew, then comes beer. Fruity fun beer something experience; could drink a six pack of this, easy. Yes, sugar sweet lime ade thing going on.

Pale golden - aroma of lime and farts. Kind of skunky and loaded with lime rind. Dry and a bit citrusy. Sweet soda-like candy character.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pours a golden body with a fizzy white head with poor retention. limey soda like a bit sweet and salty. Thin and a bit sticky, this would be a fantastic substitute for a real soda.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that I took to a tasting at Paul’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Smells like weed and old lime peels. Sweet lime soda flavors with a little malt. Tasty actually, and pretty good for what it is. I’d do one of these over a soda sometimes, and will actually probably pick up a few more at some point.

Well, it was better than the original Carib Lager, but that is damning with faint praise. Smells limey ans skunky, and tastes limey, but artificial limey, like a Jolly Rancher dissolved in beer. Bad beer. Bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is not a fine beer, but an almost decent soda-like beverage. Tastes like watered down pale lager mixed with Rose’s lime juice and sugar.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a bottle poured amber with a fair amount of head. Very fake lime flavor that ruins the beer.
