COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Margaritas, the classic summer cocktail, are getting a fresh twist this summer with todayís 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.

Not a big fan of margaritas but theseíll 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 (4741) - 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. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate slightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, Iíve 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 wouldnít be the worst thing to drink as a quick thirst quencher on a hot day, but I donít I could drink more than one 12oz can. Iíll say itís a tolerable beverage, but definitely not something I want in a beer.

Spab (2337) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
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 donít know how to rate this exactly. As a beer its a miserable failure. But it at least doesnít have all the off notes of a standard macro - these are totally masked by the phony margarita flavour.

deyholla (6568) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 17, 2014
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.

blklab2007 (1947) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2014
16 oz. can poured a lemonade color with a bit of initial white fizz that crackled away. Aroma is basically a margarita, sweet lemon, syrup, and a touch of bud light hiding in the background. Mouth feel is fizzy with sugary cocktail coating. Flavor has a pop of lime, margarita mix, sweet and sour with a soda pop like finish. I am not sure how to feel about this but it is somewhat the ultimate soda. Unbelievable amount of sugar in this can though at 58 grams if my math is correct.

Stellaaaa (252) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a fizzy light green/yellowish colour. It has a slightly sweet, limey aroma. The taste is of lemon/lime soda with some chemical notes here and there. Hard to see how this is beer, but Iím drunk and chowing down on a burrito al pastor and some frijoles, so itís not too bad from where Iím standing. Still, I wouldnít really compare it to beer, but more of a cooler type drink.

Niko100 (1974) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Very light straw color; Medium body; Aroma and flavor of sweet malt/wheat, & strong citrus/lime; I can see how this might be refreshing on a hot day - but lets not call it a beer.

SHIG (3561) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Can: Poured a yellow with white chunks, carbonated head. Aroma is lime fruit. Taste is sweet carbonated lime and water. High boost will be had without knowing it.
