Un carbed, it is smooth with slight citrus/grapefruity flavor.
Lots of citru aroma!
Very crushable!

So light, clear and drinkable.
Went down easy, too easy.
Has aroma and slight citrus flavor.
Defiantly my most "commercial" like beer ImageUploadedByWine Making1493752218.500449.jpg

I think it is very light & crushable. Slight citra flavor & aroma.
Swmbo did not like the flavor, felt it was too hoppy (Ron Howard voice)- it wasn't!

Next going to try this with a lime wedge!

Ha. I add lime to Carona, Coors and the like. I made a similar beer once, a lime ale. Friends thought it was great. I didn't like because if you have to add lime, it's not a very good beer. I psyched myself out. Haven't brewed that again.

ImageUploadedByWine Making1495980263.390590.jpg tried with a lime. Meh!
Tastes too much like a good brew with too much lime!
I think this recipe works on its own.
Next time I am going to up the late addition hops, maybe some mosaic
