Tan Limes by Cape May Brewing Co. is a Mexican-style lager with lime and sea salt and is being evaluated as a fruit beer (category 29 in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines with the base style as a 2A International Pale Lager). The fruit in fruit beers should complement the base style without overwhelming it. International pale lagers are golden-colored lagers with fewer adjuncts than American lagers yet not as much hops as pilsners. Tan Limes is brewed with Cape May sea salt and Persian lime juice.

Tan Lines pours light golden in color with a slight haze and a big, fluffy, white head. The aroma is moderate crackery pils malt with a hint of lime; no hops or esters are present. The flavor shows a lot more lime at a medium-light level over a light clean pils malt with a gentle acidity. The beer finishes lightly bittered with a crisp, clean finish with a light lime flavor and a light, pleasant acidity.

The base international lager is well brewed with a quality pils malt character. The lime complements the style well and is never overwhelming. The lime and a gentle acidity make this beer very thirst quenching.
