PorterPounder (5491) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Total Wine - Perimeter - 330 ml bottle. Light gold, very still pour, no head whatsoever. Aroma has some lime candy aroma, some spic and span soap accents. Flavor is candy sweet and limey, reminds me of sucking on a hard piece of green candy. Mouthfeel is kind of mushy. Not real refreshing like a shandy should be.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Tesco, England. Dehydrated headless piss colour. Lime cream and toilet freshener aroma. Fake, heavily sugared lime confectionery flavour. More interested in drinking rum when in Barbados. Since when was I not the site’s top rater of Carib, Banks, Barbados and Trinidad, btw? Ridiculous.

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Smells like ginger ale with a bit of lime juice from a plastic lime squeezed into it. Tastes pretty much the same, but overly sweet and fake candy-like. Would be good on a beach in Trinidad maybe.

tommann (2707) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours dark gold with no head. Aroma is stale cardboard and lime jelly. Taste is lime jelly throughout, actually quite pleasant.

BlackHaddock (3657) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
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.

wlajwl (3824) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2012
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.

BVery (6136) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2012
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).

cheap (4029) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2011
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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
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.
