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.

8 fl oz can. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a very thin white head. Overly sweet aroma of lime and sugar. Flavour is a mix of sweet and sour with artificial lime. Light body with a sticky, watery texture and soft carbonation. I cant believe this is classified as a beer.

Milky creamy yellow pour with no head. Aroma is lemon-lime soda and window cleaner, Taste is the same with a little hot fusel nastiness thrown in. Medium body, syrupy, moderately carbonated and full of nasty hot booze and solvent essence. Not quite as bad as the Straw-Ber-Rita, but still disgusting.

From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 140730-BK09. Served in a rounded margarita glass. I had a rough day today so I needed something bright and summery to turn it around. Whether this was the optimum choice is arguable. I’m not sure why In Bev/AB has so many of these fusion drinks but they must be making something from them. Look: Lime-white with no head. Aroma: limes galore and a hint of barley malts. Body: Light and refreshing, which is probably how it should be. Taste: Limes galore. That’s it.

Aroma is lemon/lime and strong soda notes. The flavor is the same as the aroma with an almost lemonade-like finish.

jkwood04 (3792) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Big can in a margarita glass. Pours golden/green with a small head. Aroma of lime, light alcohol, light beer, and citrus. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. A decent beverage for what it is. Not a good beer.

Minderbinder (1693) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Can 236ml. Pours hazy whitish with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of lime, sugar, citrus, faint booze. Taste is of lime, sugar, alcohol, slight acidity. Palate: Light-medium body. Very low carbonation. Somewhat sticky. Overall: Not really good. Not extremely cloying, but half a glass is more than enough. Not a quality "product". Maybe the best of the series...

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
This was at esbls tasting. After the other "Ritas" i was dreading this. But to my surprise it was not all the bad tasting. That is not so day it was good. It was not. But drinkable it was. And that is all.

salaba13 (20) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Citrus alcohol aroma with a clear carbonated lime color and appearance. Very sweet and mildly fruit tasting that is fizzy and lively with a strong finish.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2014
Cloudy, yellow pour with no head. Smells like lime juice, salt, and lemonade. Medium body with watery texture and average carbonation. The taste is like a sweettart with a slightly boozy finish. I have a problem calling this beer.

I’ve never really been a margarita fan. I’ve never been a Bud Light fan. G0ds, this is sweet and nasty. This headless, hazy straw c0l0red beverage has an ar0ma 0f t0nic water and lime s0da. It tastes like a lime s0da g0ne wr0ng, and certainly sh0uld be punished as it is punishing me. With an 8% ABV, this will certainly bec0me a p0pular alc0h0l delivery system nati0nwide.
