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.

$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. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2012
On tap at Brickhouse in Madison, WI as part of The Beer Spot GT pre-party. Poured a pale gold, almost greenish hue with minimal white head. Smelled pretty much like you’d expect, straw with a hint of lime, and tasted similar. Tasted pretty much like you’d want Corona to taste. In a weekend filled with big beers, this was just what I needed. Would definitely drink again. mikem409 (2032) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2013

Very smooth lager with just the right hint of lime, drinkable really havent had anything better from its competitors, good beer TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2012
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. devman171 (1223) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2013
nice free beer from Blowofftube! crisp pale lager with a hint of lime, perfect for a hot summer day, tasty brew Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle. Pale yellow with essentially no head. Sweet hay and very mild pils. Nice and light and the lime tastes authentic.
