Lemon-Lime Lager - "In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey..." Wha, wha, wha, what?!!! Well itís like this. If youíre familiar with the Singer/Songwriter íBeckí, you might recall his breakthrough single íLoserí aka íPerdedorí. A finger-in-your-face song essentially stating, "I might be a loser cuz Iím less than a man, so what are you going to do about it...kill me?! Well thatís kinda like our Lemon-Lime Lager - "I might be a perdedor cuz Iím less than a traditional beer, so what are you going to do about it...spill me?!" "Got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat..." OG 11.2 Plato (Pilsner)

This was sent to me courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. It pours a hazy, almost cloudy yellow with a huge white head and very little lacing Nose is lime. Light to medium body and a smooth mouth feel. The flavor is on he tart side sort of like lime zest and some lemon weighs in during the finish. The beer is actually a little hard to drink.

Pint bottle. Yellow gold and pretty much clear. This seems to have the common UCBC yeast but the lager yeast rounds out the sharp edges. It is floral and fruity. Generally sweet with some lemon merangue and bread.

Draft at UCBCís Grove location, served in a glass with a tall body and short stem. Pours a hazy pale gold with a finger of white head that settles into a lasting ring. I wasnít initially impressed. It has their sort of house character with big pale malts and some bready yeasty notes and not much else; donít get me wrong, I like the house character, but there wasnít anything else. Then when I went back to it a few minutes later, I was greeted with the rest - lemon and lime citrus, to be sure, with grass, hay, coriander, mint, and clean fresh grains. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, fruity, herbal mouthfeel. The malts really settle into the background while the fresh fruitiness and herbs take over. If you get the mixed pack, this is the clear standout. Iím glad I found it on tap instead of having to plop $19 for two each of three beers I donít want along with this one.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is kind of lemon-lime dishwashing liquid. Flavor is more of the lemon and lime with a super tart finish. More the lime than lemon and a whole lot watery after that. Itís ok for what it is and Iíll admit these type beers are not my thing. Itís more interesting than a Bud Light lime and if shandyís are your thing give it a try.

Pours a hazy yellow with a respectable white head. Aroma is citrus and grain. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough and mild citrus freshness. Good summer slammer.

Terminus (3541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap at the brewpub June 2012-pours lightly hazy orange with a small soapy white head, nose is lemon lime kafir leaf, like a huge fresh glass of lemon/limeaid. wow, this is wack-lots of lemon lime sprite qualities with a ton of dry spicy hops. very nice session lager for a hot STL day (or any hot place for that matter). refreshing and something unique that i figured would suck, but didnt.

I expected this to be down the lines of a Radler, I was wrong in that assumption. Pours from 1 liter grower a hazy golden with a white head. The aroma has smooth pale malt, lager roundedness, mild toast, crusty bread and hints of citrus. Medium / light smooth body thatís fairly rich and smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with a citric sharpness along with light mildly toasted malt. The citrus is more pronounced on the taste than the aroma and cuts down on the lager smoothness. The finish shows a big lime flavor and its quite complimentary to the lager so that both are apparent, but there isnít a huge citrus bit or super-smooth lager character. Really nice summer beer.

(draught at tasting room) pale gold with rapidly fading white head. Light malt and lemon aroma. Flavor is light malt, mild lemon-lime, a bit tart in the finish.
