Where and when: purchased 3/4/09 at BevMo in Oceanside, CA
Scent: lime lollipop. Actually, it smells almost exactly like lime jelly candy tastes
Color: pure emerald green
Taste: Very strong lime candy. Sweet, which makes sense, given that it has 45g of sugar per 12oz bottle. The lime is fairly mellow, but there's a strong acid underneath it. It's pleasant, but somewhat overwhelmingly sweet. Carbonation is strong, which contributes to the bite. The aftertaste is mostly sweet, just the tiniest undertone of bitter. Really, it's nice to drink, and the lime is nice if you like lime candy. But it's not a life-changing kind of soda.
Quaff rating: 3 out of 5
Cough rating: 2 from the sugar (but might be stronger if you have had bad experiences with sweet medicine as a child)
