Brick Brewing has launched its Red Baron Lime beer in Canada.

Red Baron Lime is a 'light' beer made with '100% natural lime flavour' and is being launched in Ontario, the company said this week. It has a price tag of C$9.35 (US$8.52) for a six-pack plus deposit.

The launch will be supported by "one of the largest advertising campaigns ever undertaken by Brick Brewing", the Canadian brewer said, with radio, print, billboard and transit shelter advertising across the Ontario province and a social media campaign.

Consumers can also enter a competition for a chance to win an all expenses paid trip for six to a local Ontario Resort.

In June, Brick Brewing agreed to change the label of its Red Baron beer, following a lawsuit filed against the firm by Labatt Brewing Co.

The launch of Red Baron Lime follows success across the US for Bud Light Lime, an extension of the Budweiser brand from Anheuser-Busch InBev.
