Mini can, enjoyed while packing up boxes for RS members I trustee for. Wow. this one really does taste/smell/drink like a margarita at one of those crappy Mexican restaurants that doesnít have a full liquor license. You know the ones that have a agave "wine" that is 13% that they just sneak by calling non-hard alcohol. This tastes like crappy margarita mix and that. Cheap, not horrible. Iíd probably drink this again if it was free at a summer gathering.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Can, 25oz. A hazy, pale yellow drink with more or less no head. It smells more or less like a Margarita made with a lousy tequila and too much lime. Not very alcoholic in the aroma, but itís lightly warming on the palate. Quite thin. Margarita with a touch of beer in the flavor, certainly not very plesant. Warming finish with a rather unpleasant flavor. Iím 100% positive this is the last time Iím drinking this. 130804

Pours cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma has notes of malt, lime and alcohol, Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a warm, boozy, fruity finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

AbbeyRoade (299) - Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Not sure how this qualifies as a beer. Very boozy and filled with sugary syrup and artificial lime flavorings. Too much to handle. Makes me sick after a few sips due to its overwhelming fakeness.

Beerathon (1128) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Smells like lemonade. Hazy light yellow in color. Lime in the flavor, but not enough Margarita-esque. Not horrible though.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
(Can, so kindly provided by Mora2000) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of margarita (salt, corn syrup, lemon/lime artificial flavoring). Flavor is of a cheap margarita too. If these salty corn syrup drinks are your thing, go for it.

umich03jm (1926) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Can. Pours a very cloudy greenish yellow color with a very small head that fades to a ring. Aroma smells exactly like a lime margarita mix, which is pretty nice actually. Taste is moderately sweet with a moderately sour finish. Kinda tastes like lime soda mixed with a margarita. Itís better than I expected it to be. Itís pretty salty too. And Iím surprised this still qualifies as a beer on this site because there are absolutely no beer characteristics here.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 Had the strawberry variant a few weeks ago, I tried a few sips of this from my wife at a concert. Served in a cold can, I can make out the faintish green-yellow color and some white foam. Aroma is almost like taking a whiff of margarita mix, though a tad lighter, and booze. Taste is the aroma, a boring restaurant margarita with low-shelf tequila. Medium body, low carbonation, very sweet, limey, tart, boozy, syrupy with sweet/sour finish. Probably should have been better poured on rocks, then I remind myself this is beer. Just an okay margarita-like drink, not really a beer to me.
