Clear yellow coloured-no colour at all really. Some lime aroma with not much else. Water flavour with some slight lime and corn flavours-yum! Overall, not much different than water...pretty bad! I sampled this 12 ounce PLASTIC bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Ontario.

355ml green plastic bottle. Awful macro aroma. Golden coloured, barely a hint of white head. Over carbonated. Fizzy. Watery mouth feel. Awful harsh finish. Avoid.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2005 This is the worst of the Steelback collection. Definitly try their newer stuff.

Beer that dances eh? Hell I can dance better than this beer and I suck. If I was anywhere with any elevation I would have watched it dance to its death after I jhurled it into the night....but it was daytime and I was in a backyard and we all couldn’t quite believe how bad this was....

PS: Kiss of lime? I think the person who "kissed" this had been throwing up first.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2004 Looks, tastes and smells strangely like Steelback silver with some lemon oil and water added. Well this brewery finally has one claim to fame ....this concoction is, without doubt ,THE worst thing in a bottle calling itself beer In Canada....it beats out Labatt Wildcat (if that is possible) for the most watery yet harsh green brew...made even more annoying by the presence of a pervasive lime/lemon flavor oil added at the carbonation stage....this smells like Fresca and bites like a syphilitic Brazilian whore...Steelback sliver is plain and harsh but this surpasses it ....how can something so watery be so harsh in the finish...and with annoying soda pop tastes thrown in for extra agony. I shudder at the though of tasting this any warmer than near O deg.C Agggghhh.....brrrrr...stay away stay far away. People who would regularly buy this and consume it are NOT Canadian...or human for that matter...they’re some kind of alien mutant that can consume industrial waste with verve....don’t make eye contact with them and back away slowly.

Pale gold in colour. No aroma, horrible corn flavour, no lime and lots of water. Thankfully no palate. Pure shit.

Radek Kliber (6573) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 19, 2004
Pale gold, pathetic reminiscent of lacing. Aroma plays Tango with my nostrils, bunch of polymer aroma mixed with citric water. Nutty, thin bodied corn like. Complex but in bad way, more of the plastic cup in aftertaste.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Lime extract aroma. Piss yellow, fizzy head. Nasty flavor of corn, lime and water, maybe some ass too. No palate to speak of. Pure shite.

They say that the Tango is the Forbidden Dance. I guess that makes this the Forbidden Beer. As in "This beer is forbidden from ever crossing my palate again". A Kiss of Lime? More like A Kiss of Rancid Corn.

Pale straw w/ no carbonation. Very faint corn aroma. Very light, watery palate. Bland, almost flavorless w/ just a hint of festering lime. A beer that dances . . . like your Uncle Floyd at a family wedding.
