3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small pour on tap at Brickhouse BBQ (Madison, WI). Pours a richer golden hazed pour, gentle haziness, with some orange edge and bottom glow. A bit of frothy whitish head dies to a minimal ring, laces small. Aromas are straw, cereal grains, bready malts. Fairly clean, a touch of spice, mellow bit of lime starts to grow as it warms. A bit of spice. Initial is mellow bready malts, cereal, moving quickly into lime, a bit of zest and juice giving a bit of tartness, lively citrus feel. Like a lime infused lager, this delivers some good flavors. Middle offers some more lime, tartness from it, straw, clean bready malts. Backend offers that distinct lime, bready and pale malts. This actually is quite drinkable, perhaps addictive. Tasty flavors, good light body, firm cleaness that let the lime shine and give it that punch. Liked this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate lime, light cereal/grain notes, and a touch of musty grass. It pours a transparent dull gold with a one finger soapy white head that settles to a thin film after a minute or so. There is some decent webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a some light cereal/grain notes with a touch of honey sweetness. The finish has light lime and grass. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, it’s pretty much what I expected. Certainly nothing mind blowing, but definitely a refreshing summer thirst quencher.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Draft to pint at Shakespeare’s. Looks good: a hazy yellow with white lacing. Smells light and tart. Tastes like it smells with a refreshing lime presence. Mouthfeel is average. Solid.

On tap at Brickhouse BBQ - Pours pale yellow with a little white head. Nose is real corny with a bit of honey lime. Honey grain taste with a bit of salt and lime. Tastes like a richer Corona with lime and salt. Thin body with a nice fluffy carbonation. Would like a bigger pour of this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
