Pour out of can is clear yellow-green thin white head. Aroma is tart lime, sugary margarita mix notes, actually pretty true to what i thought it would be. Taste is lemony, lime, some margarita mix with nasty vodka notes. It acually wasnt terrible, but its not good.

Pretty gross. If you want a BEER, drink a BEER. If you want a mixed drink, drink a mixed drink. This is about what youíd expect when someone adds flavoring to bud. Iíve heard of, and like fruit beers, but thereís a difference between adding fruit juice to a weissbeir and dumping flavoring and probably syrup into already awful adjunct beer. This crap is like Four Loko. I mean seriously, a white trash / college frat cater here. Itís something some ignorant kid would drink on his 21st birthday and think heís badass. Please, Iíll stick with real beer thank you, keep your corn, your adjuncts, and your artificial flavoring.

Saw a 24 oz can of this in johns about a month ago and all I could think was AWESOME. This actually tastes exactly like what it says. Splash a bud light in a $4 margarita on the rocks and youíd get this. Drank pretty good.

5/6/12. 24oz can. This is for my boy poisoneddwarf!!!!

Enjoyed over a glass of ice, as recommended. Actually, I used a champagne flute. True story!

Bubbly clear neon-greenish pour (but light) with a fizzy white head thatís gone instantly. Weirdly accurate margarita aroma - lime, sugar, and a weird buttery bitterness that reminds me of tequila (I hate tequila). Sweet lemon and lime flavor - reminds almost of 7-Up or Mountain Dew more than a margarita. Out of a glass and on ice, this is actually quite refreshing. A bit of that bitter, buttery tequila aspect seems to linger in the back of the throat. I hate to say it, but all in all, this could be way worse.

Dear god why do I do this to myself. Pours, not quite pale yellow, like dirty water. I donít usually give "1" for appearance anymore, but this is pretty shitty looking. Lime citric sweet aroma. The flavor is sweet citrus, lime/lemon, and maybe a hint of salt. Not completely awful.

Okay, judge me as you will, but I begrudgingly admit this is pretty alright. I confess I sometimes enjoy a crappy tex-mex restaurant margarita, knowing full well that itís full of chemicals and high-fructose corn syrup, and that it only vaguely resembles the historic cocktail of the same name. If you like grown-up kool-aid too, youíll like Bud Light Lime-a-Rita. I suppose it barely counts as a beer since the alcohol began as malt (instead of blue agave nectar), it had a short-lived fizzy white head when opened, and it had that distinctly metallic and synthetic Anheuser-Busch aftertaste. No trace of grain, hops, nor yeast remain, however. Itís not a good beer, but itís a tasty summer beverage that will undoubtedly make millions more dollars for the behemoth.

There is nothing beer about this. Yellow, very sweet, tastes like a margerita. No head. No hops. No malt. Slight corn. This is more like a mikes hard lemonade.

My two favorite summer drinks are BL Lime and Margaritas, so this is a no-brainer for me. If you like the quick grabs, like mikes harder, then this one is for you. Not a beer, but a malt beverage. Itís not great quality by any means. It tastes slightly artificial compared to a real margarita, but for what it is, itís great. Love the 8% ABV and low sugar content compared to similar drinks, especially traditional margaritas. Great for beach, boating or poolside. Perfect for any occasion a red solo cup is appropriate. Definitely take the cans advice and serve over ice, huge difference. I gave this a high overall because it great for what it is, just donít take it too serious.

Can.
Chastise me if you will, but this one lives up to the labelís claim. It is, in nose and taste, a margarita with a touch of beer. Lime, tequilla, and beer. Itís simple, itís kinda tasty, and I would rather drink it than a margarita from a typical Mexican restaurant.
