COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cerveza De Julie is a pale yellow Mexican Lager brewed with real lime. Delicate yeasty aromas gather quickly from the ample amount of carbonation in this lighter bodied beer style. Soft grain sweetness enhanced by unobtrusive lime qualities bring out a subtle snappy tartness, which turns mildly bitter before a crisp refreshing finish.

On tap at brewery. Aroma has notes of pilsner malts, yeasts and some lime. Pale yellow hue with a white head that left great lace. Lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery with an average carbonation.

12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Mostly clear golden color. Some fine particles visible in the body. Little white head, little bits of lace. Lighter body, kind of a sticky finish. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Pretty sweet taste. Sweet lime flavor over a lager base. Not much for me here, but would probably make a nice summer quencher. Much better than a corona (w/ lime), if that’s what the target for this is.

nimbleprop (4847) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours a clear gold with some thin, white head. Smells just like a Corona with lime, lots of lime. Tastes the same, lime, cheap pilsener, salt, grass. Refreshing finish. Reminds me of summer. A total guilty pleasure.

On tap at GABF 2013, aroma of grains and lime, similar taste, was a pleasant lager.

Essentially a better made Corona. Very refreshing. A good beer to drink on after a hot long day.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
$5.25 pint had at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Appearance: A pale gold color with half a finger of a creamy looking head on it. Lacing was pretty nice. Looks great for the style. Smell: Lime and cereal/malty notes. Really not much else to say here, but it’s really pleasing. Taste/feel: More than I expected. I know it’s Short’s, but I was thinking going into this that I’d be highly unimpressed and it’d taste like a slightly crafty Corona or Dos Equis ... dude, holy ignorance. This beer tastes like, I don’t know if anyone remembers them, but the Mystery Flavor (Mountain Dew) Doritos from 2008, or the Lime Tostitos (Not sure if they make those anymore either)... it’s almost the exact same lime flavor on the start, and then it’s just a quality craft lager the rest of the way. The lime note adds an awesome flavor to this beer that makes it stand out a bit without it being off-putting or overwhelming. I wasn’t going to get a pint of this beer, but I’m glad I did -- a flavorful, sessionable beer.

Light straw color, but more cloudy than most lagers. Light lime aroma, thin body and light head. Low ABV as expected.

Not bad, but very light, and very limy. Honestly tastes like corona and lime, but I would rather just have corona and lime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 8/2/2013. Pours moderately hazy pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lime, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of lime, malt, hop, and yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lime, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lime, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of lime, malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale lager style! All around nice balance and robustness of malt, lime, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
