2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a white, two-fingered pillowy head, fades soon and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Clear golden amber color. Nose is hoppy, starts and finishes hoppy, the lime leaf is not noticeable; hopheads line up for this one. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

thin light color, frothy white head, lightly carbonated, barley malt aroma, crisp and consice flavor, refreshingly simple, light in the mouth, lofty even, I usually stay away from stuff this light, but I would buy this again, good summer session brew.

Needs to warm a bit to taste the suble flavors.
Initially a bit of wheat and corn mixed in the citrusy hops. Somewhat tart yet reasonably soft. The finish is a bit sweet with a small bit of lime flavor.
Not a new favorite.

Pale amber with fair head. Hops aroma. Very interesting flavor--slight fruit, a hint of citrus hops, fairly crisp and quaffable. I think the beer is under-rated. It is a very nice lighter summertime beer--it wasnít intended to be a monster.

Fruity (apple, pear), little bit of zesty hops. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium body, watery/oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: some odd spice flavors and a lack of anything substantial, Iím not really getting this one.

Wow, this one is indeed unique. Pours clear dark amber with medium-sized white head, dissipates quickly. Decent lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, and some corn. Flavor is oddly plain and common, with a little citrus. Like a corona with a lime, but more corn-like flavor. At 4%, itís hard to find redeeming qualities in this one. I rate it about like a Fosters or Shiner. Not as good as others Iíve had from New Belgium.

Here we have a conflicted brew! The hops exist in the nose only. The lime exists only in the flavor. Add a twist of white grape, and the consistency of a barleywine. The end result? Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Nice light gold hue. Some head. Tastes kind of like a weak pale ale with some lemon/lime. The Kaffir lime doesnít come out much. Not my cup of tea.
Update: As Skinny dip it is a more interesting beer. There is more a Kaffir lime leaf aroma and flavor. The grain profile better as well. This change gets a higher score.

Draft at the brewery. Pours golden with a thin white head. Heavy carbonation. Light hops, light malt. Finishes dry and crisp. Like others said, not a lot there.
