Poured a clear light golden amber with a one-finger white foamy head that initially laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma sweet with artificial lime and bordering on lemonade. Taste initially bland fading to a lemonade after-taste. Light (watery) body. Finish is like a soft drink of lemonade with touch of lime.

Bottle. An awful beer. I like the idea but not the beer. Don’t bother it’s beer flavoured water with a hint of lime.

Taste like shit and piss with some added sugar/lime. Unbelievably shithouse

Sweet floral fruit amlt hop aroma. Clear amber colour with fair head and lacing. Malt time lemon flavour. Fizzy palate. Another poor CUB product... :(

Smells and tastes like dish washing detergent and artificial lime flavoring. Absolutely awful.

Good girls drink or easy drinking beer, not for the real beer drinker. But a great cheap alternative to spirits

Bottle. I really wanted to hate this - adding lime, and then of all things salt, to a beer is a horrible thing to do, yet I couldn’t. It is crisp and refreshing, and not all that bad really. Initially it tastes like beer, with lime and salt as unusual aftertastes, yet as one drinks more and more, it tastes less and less of beer and salt and more and more of lime. As a beer I hate it, because it is turning beer into an alcopop and destroying what it really is, but as a drink, ignoring the beer aspect, I can’t help but enjoy it.

Grabbed this as a takeout from my local, just to see what the fuss is all about... Horrible aroma of artificial lime, reminds me of some god awful confectionery that my nephews would consume. Fucking horrid taste, reminds me of something you’d mix in water and drink to get rid of a crook stomach, like Salvital! Disgusting finish, the artificially added salt hits you big time. Would probably do well as a premix spirit, would suck in the metrosexual nightclubber crowd easily. As a beer however, it is a new and utterly disgusting low for CUB, and is to beer what yak vomit is to a fulfilling meal. Watch it take off in happy hours at the hottest nightclubs across Australia, evidence that my country overall wouldn’t know a good beer if it bit it on the arse. Absolute fucking drainpour.

Pale piss yellow colour with small fritzy white head. Citrus/lemony flavour. Short sweet mouthfeel, very bland. Another Carlton Champion!!!!!
