COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Margaritas, the classic summer cocktail, are getting a fresh twist this summer with today’s national launch of Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita, the latest addition to the growing Bud Light portfolio. Blending the flavor of an authentic margarita with a refreshing splash of Bud Light Lime, Lime-a-Rita is an 8%* ABV margarita-flavored alcohol beverage that meets a growing demand among adult drinkers seeking sweeter alternatives.

Do the people who formulate these sugary beverages ever try them themselves? Would they say "Oh S-- we have a problem!" if they did? When I opened the can and first tasted, I knew I shouldn’t continue, but the taste lured me in. I got a major stomachache and poured the rest down the sink. This combination of sugar and alcohol doesn’t work at all for me, and I’ve been this way all of my life. I wonder how many other people experience a similar reaction? The stomachache is the outstanding feature that makes all of the other characteristics irrelevant.

This is absolutely horrid. Not even the Rita part is palatable. This is grain water with added bile. Couldn’t finish eight ounces. Yuck.

Good smell and taste of lime. Very carbonic acid. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Okay beer but not so much beer. More like a drink than a beer. Too much carbon dioxide. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

[2/18/15] Can on the bus on the way to LA. Hazy green-ish pale yellow. Aroma of alcohol, lime-scented detergent and a spicy hint. Sweet flavor with artificial lime, saccharine, a sourish note and some alcohol. Light-bodied and sticky.

Mini can to mini lager. Cloudy lime juice. Smells like a margarita. Tastes like DuPont made a margarita.

8 oz. can from Safeway. It pours a milky pale green color with a fizzy, disappearing head. The aroma is strong with sweet margarita mix, lime and light alcohol. The flavor is super sweet with more lime, sugar, alcohol. This was slightly less sweet and more palatable than the straw-ber-ita, but still cloyingly sweet and basically tasted like a bad margerita. The price is right though at $1 a can. I can see why some people would want to slam these at a party.

Can from Coco Cove market Honolulu 240115. Looks a lot like a ginger beer when poured into a glass. Big hit of citrusy lime in the nose. Refreshing on a hot day.

czar (5147) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
pours hazy pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white cap, no lacing. sweet and not-so-artificial lime, other citrus, refined cane sugar, rather well integrated booze - maybe pure ethanol, touch of zest with its very light acidity/astringency, plain grass. surprisingly light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, sweet and limey-lightly grassy finish. not horrid.

Says a lot about the beer that I like this artificial (yet refreshing) swill significantly better than bud light. lime and salt, sweet, lightly tart, underlying funk from the swill. $1 - can’t complain.

8 oz can. Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have a sweet lime margarita inspired mess, somewhat syrupy and artificial in nature, I guess some might find this interesting, but I would not revisit this again. Kind of shocked it is 8%.
