2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a finger of fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, sugar, I guess cactus juice? (which almost smelt similar to apple juice), and a hint of lime. Taste was also sweet cactus/apple juice, lime, and grain. Eh

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is clear, golden in color, light white head. The smell is fruits, lime, and light. Not really beer. The taste is about the same.

Nice fresh lime smell. Almost no color. Looks like a cider. Actually kind of tastes like a cheap cider. Overall a refreshing drink.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Someone stuck this in my face at my Fantasy Football league draft last night. Fortunately I had a growler of much better beer, and saved this 12 oz. gem till today. Pours a weak pale yellow with a sizzling, vanishing soda pop head. Aroma is artificial lime and a hint of cactus. Taste is lime syrup and some drying cactus and lime acidity on the finish. Light body is tingly and fizzes up nicely as I pour it down the sink.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Pours a clear very pale yellow gold body with a fizzy white head that lingered as a sickly thin film. The nose is super sweet smelling with tons of lime and a weird sugary sweet candy like note that I guess is cactus? The flavor is so much worse than the other two lime beers I’m having. They at least just taste like watered down lime juice, this is like super sugary lime flavored candy. The finish just lingers on forever, gross. Fizzy and thin, yet sticky and clingy on the finish. This is by far much worse than either Bud Light Lime and Labatt Blue Light Lime that I’m drinking this next to.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
match1112 with the this stellar extra. 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A - Pours a clear amber body looking very much like a basic AAL. Some soapy edging with minimal lacing.
S - Artificial lime juice and a very off putting chemical aroma. Not sure if its the "cactus" or just some skunked beer. Its fruity, fake, and kind of offensive.
T - Better. Skunked beer with an artificial lime finish as well as a gummy bear like sweetness. Its drinkable enough.
O - This is different than most lime beers, namely Bud Light Lime. I suppose its that cactus edge giving it some extra agave nectar sweetness. I understand that most beers have a purpose, even crappy or fruited ones. I just can’t imagine anyone buying this for enjoyment. Its just not that good.

Tickets gotta tick. Smells like canned corn + lime. Bland base lends itself to allowing the artificial cactus flavor center stage. Minimally limey on the palate. Actually pours with head & lace -- and retains them both! Far better than expected.

Clear and crisp. This "beer" tastes like lime, but I was curious if it was a beer or a wine cooler.
