On draft in Paris (France, not Texas).I have to admit that of all the bad beers I have drank in my many years, this one is the worst. It is agressively bad. Whatever prompted me to select this beer must involve a huge dose of sadism. It was definitely my worst experience in Paris.

lusikka (6984) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2015
330 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Dubrovnik, Croatia. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of grains, some cardboard and citrus. Flavour of sugary sweet maltiness, tangy lime notes and some harsh graininess. Tequila is missing and Im angry. High carbonation. Its like a bad soda.

paulvanpelt (383) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Bleekgeel, gedronken uit de fles. Aroma van suiker, bloemen. Smaak is zoet. Lijkt erg op ginger ale. Lekker in de zomer, of bij curry.

Holmen2 (1659) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 25.04.15. Clear golden. Diminishing white head. Aroma of lemonade, lime juice, bitter lemon and pepper. Similar taste, with some bitterness in aftertaste.

From bottle in Lille with KL 15.02.15. Clear and pale. Diminishing white head. Aroma and taste of 7UP, with bitterness of artificial sweeteners in aftertaste. More like a lemonade than a beer.

Holmen1 (3297) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
Flaske, delt med Ovesen: klar gylden med tett hvitt skum. Sitronlukt (som i oppvaskmidler). Sitronbrus med en knivsodd pepper i smaken, ganske s st. Ettersmaken er mer som et belegg p tunga. Spesiell, men ikke helt ille. Takk til Anders F som hadde kjpt den til meg p flyplassen i Gdansk.

PhillyBeer2112 (2611) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
what the heck is this? Ive never had a pale lager with such a strong sugary sweet flavor. I dont know about any tequila barrel flavor, more of a sweet lime juice and beer concoction, candy sweet, weird bitterness at finish. awful, just awful.

Innocuous appearance with a slightly vegetal sweet aroma that carries into the flavour. Not a fan Im aftraid.

Nice sweet beer. The slice of lemon compliment this beer. It is perfect combined with tapas. The beer has a nice sweetness with a touch of bitterness. However, it is not very special.

Just tastes like a weak lager and lime with a dash of washing up liquid in it ( you know the taste when the glass wasnt rinsed properly). I love lager and lime so I wont be overly critical. That said I would rather make my own out of much cheaper and better beer ( this stuff aint cheap ) and my own cordial. I am now off to get a solid Pilsner and some lime to show them how its done.
