bottle - but with a lime. Do not try this beer without one. If it wasn’t for constantly being skunked I might have a better rating for this one. Definitely marketed well which would explain it’s popularity. Light taste, usually ruined aroma, not quite watery but no body whatsoever.

Slightly honey aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head. Very light honey and fruit flavor. Nice body with low carbonation.

Niall73 (1346) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
From the bottle. Gold colour. Aroma is slightly corny with white bread. Light body, medium carbonation. Some popcorn, lemon, light bread... Nothing to it really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheHopster (786) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2014
(Bottle). An undeniable ubiquitous summer beer. Watery and light by intent. Served ice cold and with lime wedge to add flavor. Preferable to Bud and the macro crowd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pale yellow. Has a faint malt and grass aroma. Taste is watered down with grass, pine, grains, and malt.

Had this on numerous occasions at pubs in the US, UK, and Bulgaria. It is a nice, light, summer drink, although it might be difficult to find something really exciting about it. Light gold colour with lively carbonation and water-y taste. It combines well with the citrus-y flavour of the lime it is usually served with.

DATE REVIEWED: July 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal (though tough to choose one, considering this is mostly a bottle-to-mouth beer... OCCASION: the comedown after two solid days of eating, drinking and celebrating...APPEARANCE: blur-inducing golden yellow body with minimal bubbles forming; quickly disintegrating white head forms a pencil-thin circle; zero lacing... AROMA: some metallic pings, but mostly a blank slate to sift other scents between; faint bubblegum and biscuit ... PALATE: where this one wins at least in its functionality--as enjoyed the past two days, a clean, clean palate-cleansing body that thinly holds to a beer-like guise--mostly water; when held on its own merit sans setting, a liquid pure and simple... TASTE: is it corn chip? just corn? bitter malt ping of a Vienna lager minus all that complexity--a syrupy ending leaves a little aftertaste, but a bit beefy if chewed...who knew the lack of a lime could be so detrimental to the overall experience?... OVERALLL: after oscillating between this and Starr Hill’s wheat, I found my Fourth of July well enjoyed mostly due to the family, food and fireworks...the beer itself served to quench thirst and balance out the grill carbs, and little else...I do believe this review would have been more complimentary if the lime were present, as I even had difficulty selecting a proper drinking vessel...

jjsint (628) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle at Pizza Hut. A decent yellow colour. Surprisingly muted carbs & no head. The aroma isn’t bad at all: lemon and peach, not at all skunky. The taste, however, is just filthy and awful. Sour and sickly with a hard earwax sour aftertaste. An awful and evil and frighteningly poor beer.

HammerTroll (318) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 4, 2014
Clear yellow color, no head. Aroma is water? Some maltyness. Watery texture, thin body, lively/fizzy carbonation. Well carbonated water.

When a beer requires lime to define its character, that isn’t a good sign. Only the light version of the beer could be lighter than this. Watery and forgettable.
