4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

8 oz can. Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have a sweet lime margarita inspired mess, somewhat syrupy and artificial in nature, I guess some might find this interesting, but I would not revisit this again. Kind of shocked it is 8%.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a pint glass and a wine glass, there wasn’t any difference between the two.
The appearance was a semi-clear slightly golden to yellow color with a bubbly white head.
The smell had a sharp lime aroma to I.
The taste was a stinging sharp lime with a light apple going amuk.
On the palate, this sat extremely light and extremely sessionable. What carbonation - no where to be seen.
Overall, this wasn’t exactly a fruit beer I’d come back to. but hey, if you like beers that aren’t exactly hoppy and somewhat sugary maybe fruity well this one’s for you

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from a can into a beer mug. Looks like a lemonade with very little resemblance to beer. Has a very strong aroma of fruit. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet with a small hint of beer (mostly in the aftertaste). Not a very good drink for me.

Well this is good to get some booze into you or make a mock non slushy bulldog when all your friend has to offer you is a Corona and this. Sweet!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a quickly dissolving white head. Looks like a margarita.
Aroma: Lime and booze, smells like a margarita.
Taste: Sweet and limey with a boozy bite.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: It is what it is. It’s not a beer it’s a canned cocktail. It really shouldn’t be on this site. I’m not a big margarita guy but the ones I’ve had haven’t tasted far off from this, so they did their job right.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tried a 12-pack of these when they came out in Quebec, now having them in Maine (as well as a few others in their mixed pack). Looks like lemonade with a fizzy head that disappears instantly. Big lime nose with the alcohol. Sweet tasting with the citrus and notes of honey. A little to sweet overall, but goes down nicely from the can, cold, on a hot summer day.

A sweeter alternative indeed. Sugar, lime, sugar, and lime. It will get you drunk...on sugar? Headache is a compliment. Intense beverage.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bière de 8 % d’alcool. Blonde très pâle, elle possède un odorat d’alcool très forte et citronné. Aucun col au versement. Elle possède un goût sucré et amer simultanément, caractéristique d’un margarita. Très bonne, rafraichissante !

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
So... I bought this. Knowingly. With my own money. Drank from the 8 oz. can at the Lawrenceburg Speedway on the occasion of their annual demolition derby "Night of Destruction." Aroma: Reminds me of the cheap half priced margaritas from LaFinca in Morehead, KY. Fairly salty, lemon-related smell. Appearance: See picture to your left. Flavor: Mostly matched the nose; kinda astringent and alcohol-heavy without being added to ice, like drinking straight margarita mix. Palate: Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: Fairly poor margarita substitute. Just made me want the real thing (or a real beer).

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tiny can, what is this - 8 oz? Poured a yellow color which briefly reminded me of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, just a for a quick moment - not very radioactive colored though. Medium sized white head. Aroma was pretty much just margarita notes, some salt and a touch of artificial lime juice. Flavor about the same. Pretty unappetizing. How hard is it to just make a margarita?
