0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
8 fl oz / 237ml can into a shaker. Served cold.
Aroma: Lemon candy. Jolly ranchers.
Appearance: Hazy, murky, sinister-looking pale light greenish colored body. Soda like head dissipates instantly.
Taste: Lime-y soda. A weird aftertaste makes it obvious that there is alcohol in it. There’s no fruit in this; why is it classified as a fruit beer? MALTERNATIVE AS IT GETS.
Palate: Fizzy, sickly sweet, instant finish.
Overall: So we can buy cheap margarita mix and dump beer in it and suddenly it’s a fruit beer? AVOID AVOID AVOID.

1 oz sample from ABI rep. This isn’t beer folks, this is malt-beverage-premix-alchopop stuff. Limey, alcoholic, pre-made margarita that somehow has beer as a starting point. Might be suitable as Gettin’ Laid Lemonade.

8 oz can purchased as a single at some grocery store in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The pour is a hazed, yellow margarita appearance. The aroma is salt, sweet triple sec, and cheap tequila - basically they house margarita at a below average Mexican place. Taste is the same, overly sweet somewhat weak tasting margarita. The palate is medium bodied, slick, sweet finish. Not my thing at all.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can: Lemonade looking drink with ton of fake lime. Taste is not that far off Margueritas and not even close to beer. I can see this drink working for a certain crowd but I am not really sure it has very much to do with beer at the end of the day.

355ml can. Looks like a glass of lemonade, no head, hazy. Nose is lemony and has some booze. Lemonade and lime flavours, not too sweet. Light tang. Pretty plain finish and no signs of the 8% in the mouth. Not great, but more drinkable than I expected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color of this beer can only be described as that of a margarita. The aroma has a mix of sugar and limes, just like a margarita. The flavor is also that of a margarita with some limes, light salt and sugar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. All this is missing is the tequila.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a pint sized can. This is a cheap Margarita, very sugary, lime acidity, tequila flavor. This is terrible, Footbalmed.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours like lemonade; zero head. Intense faux-lime aroma, can smell the sugar. Tastes just like those shitty pre-mixed margaritas you buy at a liquor store, but with a full cup of sugar added. Tons of fake lime again. Honestly isn't awful tasting; the gimmick works IMO.

Straight from the can on a golf course. This is slightly better than the strawberry version

The bouquet is nice and limey. It smells like a decent margarita. Out of the can, the first taste is lime and Triple Sec everywhere, with a nice salty edge to it. But the finish was skunky, and reminded me of wet gym socks. On another reviewers suggestion, I tried it over the rocks, and it was much better. The head was the typical small-bubbled, egg-white commercial heads that lasted about 30 seconds, but margaritas aren’t supposed to have a head anyway. The skunkiness went away and left a nice clean lime finish. It tastes like a mild margarita, very refreshing. I also tried cooking a Tequila Lime Perdue chicken with it in my pressure cooker, and it was outstanding! This stuff is more valuable as a cooking ingredient than as a drink.
Over-all, not a bad drink, and a welcome addition to my kitchen magic (I am a chef)...much better than a lot of wines. For drinking, it’s OK, but at over $7.00 for 4 cans, you can buy the stuff and make real margaritas cheaper.
