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.

Way way way to sweet. Alcohol is hidden very well until after you drink one and realize how hard it hits. not good.

Süßlich-limettiger Antrunk, sehr süffig und nicht zu süß. Lecker, erfrischende Limette. Auch nicht zu künstlich.
Kein Bier, aber als Durstlöscher im Sommer super!

Pours a cloudy hazy colorless mess with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor both are completely limeade. No sense that this is in any way beer. As a beer it is nasty. As a limeade it is refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Where’s the beer? Seriously, Lime-A-Rita smells and looks like lime extract. Tastes like it too, except with the sickly sweet burn of the 8% ABV. The final line of the description scared the shit out me: "...meets a growing demand among adult drinkers seeking sweeter alternatives." That’s terrifying. If anything, this is "beer" for the Coke and Pepsi generation. There’s virtually no sign of barley or hops anywhere in this brew. No self-respecting adult should ever be caught drinking this. It pains me that the can has to state that this beer "Contains Alcohol." That’s the sole thing that Lime-A-Rita has remotely in common with real beer.

Make it so. Cloudy UTI piss test pour. Nose of limeaid, booze, and sulfur. Flavor is lime juice with a boozy tinge. Cracked salt and corn. Semi-sweet, yet tart from the lime. Could be much worse, I guess. Not remotely beer-like.

Not a big fan of margaritas but these’ll get you drunk. Cant really rate like a beer. Pretty good to me.

Tall boy can: Lime and tequila nose, mainly lime. Milky yellow, headless. Tangy light body, much stronger presence of tequila. Does not resemble beer, more like a highball. Bleh.

Pailhead (5037) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Can: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy sour mix, light sugary lime, and a touch of tequila. It basically smells like a margarita with a little added sweetness. It pours a hazy dull yellow with fizzy white head that fades to nothing almost instantly. It kind of reminds me of Mountain Dew in appearance, just not quite as bright. The flavor starts with light-moderate sour mix. The finish has moderately sweet lime, a hint of salt, and some signs of the 8% abv. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate slightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, I’ve always been a little curious about this beer as I do enjoy a margarita every once in awhile. This is a little sweet and soda-ish though. It wouldn’t be the worst thing to drink as a quick thirst quencher on a hot day, but I don’t I could drink more than one 12oz can. I’ll say it’s a tolerable beverage, but definitely not something I want in a beer.

236 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a murky ultra-pale straw colour - sort of a really sickly-looking urine colour. Aroma is quite sweet - not remotely beer-like but actually smells reasonably like a margarita with lots of artificial lime. Flavour is again, rather like a margarita although the artificial taste of the lime sticks out; a little salt is even apparent. I don’t know how to rate this exactly. As a beer its a miserable failure. But it at least doesn’t have all the off notes of a standard macro - these are totally masked by the phony margarita flavour.

Can thanks to Joe! Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has notes of lime, earthy corn and lots of sweetness. Flavor is full of sweet lime lime and has heavy carbonation.
