COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from brewed lager blended with lime for a zesty citrus flavour. With a generous beer content of slightly less than 50% it gives a strong full flavour that offers maximum refreshment and a fresh tang of citrus without excessive fizziness.

To drink or not to drink something what is or is not a beer. But OK, Malta is a really warm place so a bit of cold lime mixed with a beer can do a requested work. C@Malta

Chlorine and lime nose, smells very... clean. CLear yellow, no head. Ginger is very prominent on the front, with lime taking its place on the back. Not very beery, but there is malt base that is perceptible. Not great as a beer, but really a delightful and refreshing beverage. Tasty and not cloying like alcopop. Can we even rate shandies?

Bottle. Pours a gold or copper toned body with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lime and citrus lemon rind with a spritzy carbonation some light sugar tones and a lemon lime finish. Soft and soda like with a lemony body accented with sweeter sugar warped lime notes. A fantastic fruit beer especially for someone who is addicted to lime!

Pale yellow pour with large fully white head. Nice aroma of malts with lots of lime coming through, unique. Flavor is sweet with lots of lime and fruits. Body and mouthfeel is still very much beer. Hits of bread and lime in the finish. Best fruit beer I’ve had.

Sweet lemony aroma, near lemon aide. Looks like a sparkling apple cider with a half inch creamy head. Very nice initial perfumy taste. Friendly with well preserved lemon flavors. Very easy to drink, fun and interesting. Overall, a very pleasant experience with no bitterness what so ever. Effortless to like. Would buy this again in a heartbeat. Approaches the enjoy-ability of many fruit lambics. Not quite sour, yet pleasant. S9L2T9F4018. Glad I purchased this one! Farsons has made a good quality first-rate fruit beer. Impressed.
