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.

Refreshing Margarita minus the tequila & triple sec. Sweet & tart with a strong but smooth lime flavor. Overall ok but not my thing. As a beverage I would rate this higher but as a beer, it barely qualifies thus a middle of the road 10 for me overall

Bottle. Cloudy jizz colour with no head. Stong lime aroma, lemonade. Taste is super bad, stong bitter lemon and lime, intense. Sweet and an assault on the mouth

Murky grey, no head. Stench of Margarita mix a soon as the can was opened. A bit of a rich sweetness throughout, there’s a decent tang and the carbonation returns a fairly smashable vibe here but it’s something that you’d just about get away with on holiday in a hot country without any non-pale lagers. Wee bit ginny on the finish.
