Finally gave in and bought a 50 cl can at Franprix. A favorite of French teens. Smells like Mt. Dew!!!!! Yellow with bubbles. Tastes like a Margarita with Sprite. And the ice cubes have melted. Itís not beer, but I like it!

Nothing wrong with this beer on occassion. Sometimes you just need something sweet instead of the normal, more bitter beers.

I was torn with this one. Lime and grassy aroma. Light body with just a small malt sweetness that lingers. It seems sweeter than it is, but it definitely is not like a typical light lager. Decent mouthfeel. I kinda liked it.

Heerlijk bij warm weer. Het is geen bier dat je drinkt als bier, maar als een verfrissende zomerdrank. Geen uitgesproken biersmaak.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 13, 2014
Can from Tesco, Carrick-on-Shannon [130714] Can 5.9%
Light yellow, clear, frothy white head
Nose of sweet artificial washing-up liquid lime, no skunk as itís canned
Taste of sweet artificial lime, sugars, one-dimensional, nothing else, no taste of the underlying lager (which is probably good)
Palate - Medium carb, light body, acidic lime. Finish as main flavour, rapid, slight chemical linger
Overall - Iím sure this would have been far worse in a clear bottle.... Itís an alcopop with lime and sugars (added glucose syrup, artificial flavourings and other junk) to mask the aroma and taste of the lager

Bottle. The worst beer I've ever had. Sweet disgusting. The lime wedge in it probably made it better

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of limes, malts and grass. Taste is sweet, sweet and more sweet along with some lime and malts.

Pours a clea rgolden color topped with average white head. Skunky aroma initially, followed by some malts and something that should be tequila. The taste is sweet, with a slight sour addition, finishing with a bit of bitterness. Metallic feel in the aftertaste.
