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.

Can poured over ice. Not really a beer at all but an OK quick margarita drink. My wife really likes them. I would drink it again if there wasn’t much else to choose from.

Cloudy, yellow pour with no head. Smells like lime juice, salt, and lemonade. Medium body with watery texture and average carbonation. The taste is like a sweettart with a slightly boozy finish. I have a problem calling this beer.

I’ve never really been a margarita fan. I’ve never been a Bud Light fan. G0ds, this is sweet and nasty. This headless, hazy straw c0l0red beverage has an ar0ma 0f t0nic water and lime s0da. It tastes like a lime s0da g0ne wr0ng, and certainly sh0uld be punished as it is punishing me. With an 8% ABV, this will certainly bec0me a p0pular alc0h0l delivery system nati0nwide.

Can thanks to Keith. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with no head. Very salty flavor full of lime too. Tastes just like a margarita. Not too bad.

davey101 (615) - Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2014
Little 8 oz can into a pint glass. Poured over ice. Pours a hazy lemonade yellow, some soda pop fizz but no head. Nose is lime juice and bleach. Taste is better...lime juice and soap. Lingering simple syrup sweetness. Oddly refreshing in a chemically way. Drinkable and not a drain pour by any means.

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

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Süßlich-limettiger Antrunk, sehr süffig und nicht zu süß. Lecker, erfrischende Limette. Auch nicht zu künstlich.
Kein Bier, aber als Durstlöscher im Sommer super!

BOSSbrewer (1308) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 12, 2014
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.

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.
