TedE (543) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle into glass. Slightly different bottle to photo, maybe re-launch? Slight aroma of lime. Flat amber beer with derisory head. Tastes like weak lime cordial. Finish is nothing, just nothing. A beer for people who donít like beer.

KeefOz (1151) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2013
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.

Lunkie (1579) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2010
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 couldnít. 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 canít help but enjoy it.
