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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Can: jaundice yellow with olive hints; murky Mellow Yellow with almost no head, just a fizzle. Aroma of subdued lime, fruit, sour margarita mix, mild booze. Taste is the same way, with some lime notes, margarita mix, sweet and sour mixers, a bit of alcohol, and some back end bitterness. Mildly tart but eminently sweet. A little too sugary sweet; couldn’t consciously finish my tall-boy can. Not really a "beer" but sadly, this is better than most of Bud’s other offerings.

DrewFace (783) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Poured from a 24oz man can into a snifter. Cloudy dull yellow color with no head or notable effervescence. Smell is of a sour mix dominant margarita. Taste is very sweet, tart, and citrusy character of mostly lime of course. Fairly refreshing although too sweet to drink much. I can feel the heartburn coming on already. Overall, as stated, refreshing but very sweet. Probably best enjoyed near a large body of water, not on your living room couch...like me.

Ratman197 (9806) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2013
24 oz can poured a cloudy greenish yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of lime, tequila and salt. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of lime, salt and light tequila with a crisp lingering margarita finish.

rosenbergh (6818) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
16 oz can. 13075. From some liquor store in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Lime, lemon and tartness in the aroma. Lime, lemon, some sugary sweetness and mild tartness in the flavour. Warming alcohol. Tastes like a lemonade not like a beer. Slightly boozy aftertaste. Much better than the Straw-ber-Rita.

DialSquare (2656) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Small can left behind in the fridge by family. Wasn’t sure it would even qualify as a beer... Tastes like a margarita wine cooler. Fizzy sweet lime. Surprised it’s 8%. Probably rather drink than bud light - if only drinking one (very sugary sweet).

Mittenator (1304) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Can by the water. The color of Fresca with a small white head. Smells like a lime Popsicle and alcohol. Tart malt and way too sweet.

Out of an 8oz can, pale pear juice color pour, no head. Aroma of stale lime juice and tequila. Taste is like a lime wine cooler, super sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stopped into 7-Eleven just to pick up a big boy can of this 8% beast. Poured into a chalice. The pour’s hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Looks like carbonated artificial lemonade. The nose is less appealing than I’d hoped. Knackered grains and paper meets lemon-lime concentrate. Certainly a bit boozy too. The taste is pretty much what you’d expect. Sickly sweet margarita mix. Lemon soda. Crass and a bit rough on the finish. Slightly oily. Overall, this is high octane garbage.
