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.

Good Mexican style beer and summer alternative to corona. Slight lime flavor brewed right in. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Pale straw, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Faint lime nose, a little straw/hay.   Lime right up front, then sweet lime that feels a bit artificial, followed by a strong mealiness.   Not so sure about this, smelled cleaner than it tastes.   Has a bit of a urinal cake background.   Really cereal like on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Chewier than most Pale Lagers.   Artificial lime finish.   Smells interesting, starts fair, finishes poorly.   Thanks Kevin!

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.

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2013
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 thatís what the target for this is.

nimbleprop (5196) - 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 itís really pleasing. Taste/feel: More than I expected. I know itís Shortís, but I was thinking going into this that Iíd be highly unimpressed and itíd taste like a slightly crafty Corona or Dos Equis ... dude, holy ignorance. This beer tastes like, I donít 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)... itís almost the exact same lime flavor on the start, and then itís 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 wasnít going to get a pint of this beer, but Iím 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.
