A quick review here since this was just a beer I grabbed from the fridge as I knew there was a few going space and it would save me from buying it myself. Again this is yet another new beer from the UK arm of the Coors Molson brewery following on from last years Carling Chrome and the very poor Animée Beer (Clear), both of which I reviewed here previously. I’m not expecting anything at all from this one really and at only 2.8% I’m not sure if this will even taste like a beer but I’ll give it a go anyway.
Appearance (2/5): A light golden colour with a thin, pinky sized head that is bubbly looking and bone white. After a minute or so the head disappears and leaves a thin, soapy lacing at the top.
Aroma (4/10): A lot of citrus to begin with, mainly lime in this instance with some background grain, touches of sugar and a bit of lemon. Basic, very light and dominated by citrus with everything else hard to detect.
Taste (5/10): Pretty much the same as the smell all over again with lime dominating and backed up by a tangy lemon zest flavour. There is some grain and very light hops along with some sugary syrup flavouring right at the end. A very citrus infused, sweet beer but rather plain.
Palate (2/5): Thin with moderate to strong carbonation and a lot of tang from the citrus. There is some bitterness right at the end but it’s almost like drinking sparkling lime water.
Overall (7/20): A very basic, sub-par beer that was rather watery and not enjoyable at all. It’s only saving grace was that is was so weak on flavour (other than the lime anyway) that it could be drank easily enough. I just don’t understand who this beer is aimed at and I can’t see this being one that I’ll be drinking again.
