There are some pilsners and lagers that can pull off a twist of lime in them, but I don’t believe this is one of them. Much rather have the Labatt without it, but it is still better than most macros.

It has a light golden color with a thin white head. There is lively carbonation visible in the beer which has very good clarity. The head is fluffy and fades fast leaving just a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Little to no lacing is left behind on the glass. The aroma is rather light but there is a hint of light grainy malt, mild grassy hops and a pleasant citrus scent. Its flavor is very similar to its aroma. There is light grainy malt with mild hop flavor and bitterness, along with a nice touch of citrusy lemon and lime. The palate has a light, easy to drink, body with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

Clear yellow with a thick white head. This had a very distinct lime aroma. Light and refreshing.

11.5 oz bottle 3/23/10 (Binny’s Plainfield)-42° in English Pint-Pours a clear yellow witha small white head. Aroma of corn, malt, and lime. Taste of the same with the lime becoming more prominent. This light bodied brew is better than other lime brew but that is not saying much.

Clear straw yellow color. Totally see-through. Bubbles like ginger ale. No head, decent carbonation. No body. The light lager aroma completely is overshadowed by a sweet Sprite-like lime aroma. Has a surprising vodka aroma. Actually surprisingly refreshing because the beer is overshadowed. The taste is sweet 7Up and a little sourness. Butterscotch aftertaste. Actually, the malt emerges a bit, but this is a beer for non-beer drinkers. Too sweet and sour. Might as well go gin-n-tonic. The feel is lacking: almost no body. Some carbonation adds a little. This is not a "beer." Nonetheless, it’s drinkable. Weak, but pleasant enough.

Why did they have to put lime in this. A decent canadian lager with a little character, and put a shot of lime in it? Doesnt mix well, not saying this is terrible, but an unnecesary combination. Put lime in bad american pale lagers or mexican beers, but not a canadian beer. I’ll stick with Bud Lights version if I feel the need to drink an artificially masked beer.

What a super crappy beer. Part of a 12 pack i bought, it tasted like shit. Light lager with stale lemon lime flavors and soft carbonation. what a wasteon my palate."

12 oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Pours a clear light golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma is weak pale malt infused with a very artificial lime scent that just doesn’t excite me. The flavor is actually a bit better than I would have expected from the nose. The pale malt had just enough lime citrus flavor to make it somewhat drinkable. I did have this after working outside on a warm day so maybe my judgement was a bit off. Regardless, this will be a one time thing.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.5oz. or 340ml bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a light golden color with a thin white head. There is lively carbonation visible in the beer which has very good clarity. The head is fluffy and fades fast leaving just a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Little to no lacing is left behind on the glass. Smell: The aroma is rather light but there is a hint of light grainy malt, mild grassy hops and a pleasant citrus scent. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor is very similar to its aroma. There is light grainy malt with mild hop flavor and bitterness, along with a nice touch of citrusy lemon and lime. The palate has a light, easy to drink, body with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Notes: It makes a good warm weather or “lawnmower beer” and I would say that it is better than some of the more popular citrus flavored light or pale American style lagers.

Bottled. Poured very bright, almost watery golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up artificial lime extract on a bed of pale malts.. non-offensive, but not good. The flavor had even more of the lime with corn syrup and pale malts at the core.. drier and fizzy on the scratchy finish. Light-bodied bordering on watery on the palate.. very artificial.. some Sprite stuck on the short finish. Don’t need to drink this one again.
