0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled. Pale yellow, no head. Artificial lime aroma. Saccharine sweet, artificial and plastic. Empty calories fills out a baloon-like body. Inky and syrupy. Horrible in every imaginable way.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is, once again, pale yellow with a head that leaves before it has a chance to say hello.
S: The lime is surprisingly in check in this beer, and the cactus aroma is subtle as well. This sort of has a 7-Up/Sprite syrup aroma to it (not the soda, just the syrup), with some cactus added for whatever reason.
T: The cactus is probably the most noticeable flavor here, but the limes are there. It’s more of a lime peel/zest sort of flavor, rather than the fake lime juice I was expecting.
M: The body is light and the carbonation is on the high side, but it’s not as overdone as the other flavors.
D: As awful as it might be to some people to say/admit, this wasn’t really all that bad. I don’t know how often I’d want to drink this, but it tasted pretty decent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear glass bottle from Hi-Time. Almost perfumy lime aroma - not really strong though. Golden color with a white head that left rapidly with lace tatters in the wake. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is lime, not much salt at all, and then there’s something else - which might be the cactus. Reasonably refreshing; arguably more so than the sister beers. The finish is sort of lime syrup flavor (without the sugar) with essentially no bitter. Might be good on a hot beach.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured clear light pale color with an average rocky white head that mostly diminished. Light sour citrus aroma. Light body with a watery texture with soft carbonation. Light bittersweet flavor with a bitter finish of short duration. Drinkable summer brew.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small quickly dissapating white head. Aromas of sweet lime, light cactus and a hint of bread. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sweet lime and light straw with a crisp dry sweet finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Artificial lime and sweetness, think bar lime. Very pale gold with a good white head. Lime soda without any redeeming tartness.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 oz. bottle. Very pale yellow with a small fizzy head. Artificial lime predominates the taste and the aroma... like a lime jello with some faint notes of beer. Really, all in all, a great soda.
