How: Horizontal tasting at home with the infamous Franky Boy. Cans (236 ml).

All 5 were super artificial but much easier to drink than I thought it would be. Artificial fruity alcoholic cola.

Cran-Brrr-Rita 8% Very sweet nose and a bit acrid flavor even though it’s super artificial. 4-3-4-2-9 = 2.2

Lime-A-Rita 6% Lemonade-like color. Intense artificial lime aroma, like slush puppies. A bit puckering. 4-3-4-2-8 = 2.1

Mang-O-Rita 6% Glowing peaches color. Gummy peaches alcoholic cola. Probably the sweetness of the five. 5-3-5-2-9 = 2.4

Raz-Ber-Rita 6% It’s really similar to the raspberry Jell-O that I had in terms of artificial raspberry flavors. 5-3-5-2-8 = 2.3

Straw-Ber-Rita 6% Super artificial, like the others. The softest of the five and rather easy drinking. Gummy strawberries. 5-3-5-2-9 = 2.4

8 oz can from the store down the street. Lemon green color with a smallish white head that dissipates almost instantly. Puckering lime and sour mix aroma and flavor. Probably my favorite of the rita series so far. Hardly beer but kinda nailed the bubbly margarita imitation.

Local supermarket. 8oz can Looks and smells kinda like a margarita. No head. Tastes like a soda made out of margarita mix. No beer found here.

Patrickctenchi (5210) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2015
Can: Pours cloudy, very pale yellow-grey with a tiny white ring. Aroma is lime.....with a hint of Pine-Sol Cleaner.... Taste is salty lime juice.... Painfully sweet...... Just as miserable as the regular version.

shrubber85 (9455) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2015
Tall boy Can from the Shell station in Franklin, TN. Salty lime aroma - possible hint of lime. Cloudy green-yellow - briefest of heads. Salty sweet margarita mix with hint of tequila - Bud light must be in there somewhere but is overwhelmed. 25% less boost though.

ordybill (824) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured from an 8 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Smells of artificial lime (in a gad way) and no aroma of any normal beer ingredients. Appearance- A very odd yellow color that looks more like a soda than beer. Taste- WOW, not good at all, in fact I can’t drink all of the 8 OZ serving. Palate- highly carbonated, finishes dry Overall: Terrible, avoid at all costs.

rosenbergh (9153) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
16 oz can. (Andy’s Market) South Pittsburg, TN.
Hazy light green colour with no head. Tart lemon and lime aroma with some bitter alcohol twist on it. The flavour is lime, lemon, mild tartness and some alcohol notes. Not the worst beer mix...

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Tasted on 8/18/14 from an 8oz can purchased at the grocery store. Pours hazy green/yellow with a thin, fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The nose is super sweet candied lime with a very light malt aroma underlying. The flavor is the same, overly sweet Rose’s lime juice with the same very light malt from the nose. The body is light with fizzy soda carbonation and a medium sweet lime juice finish.
