I have had other lime beers and so called margarita flavored beers but they taste like beer with a shot of lime juice. OK so this doesn’t taste like beer but for me that is a good thing. I love a good margarita in the summer and after so many flops in this genre of beers I had my doubts this would be any good. WOW! was I surprised by this one. It is the same lime juice color as I have come to expect from a real margarita. Has the right aroma too. The taste, well if I didn’t know better I would think that I am drinking a real margarita from a salt rimmed glass. This is about as close to having a margarita as you can get without the Tequila. Best part is that I don’t have to squeeze a bunch of limes or salt up a glass for this. I can just pop it open and enjoy. Had been looking at this one for a long time and just couldn’t seem to bring myself to try it. Grabbed one from a gas station while on a road trip just because they had them on display and now I am mad at myself for not trying this sooner. This is now on my top pick for too hot for anything other than the pool and a margarita day.

Giant 25oz can thanks to Mr Chopin. What a jerk! Pours a clear lime gold. No head. Nose smelled like someone puked a margarita, salt. Flavor is lime and butter and salt and coconut. Bad. The worst of the bunch.

Yup, it has a margarita flavor. More bitter, but plenty of sweet, sour, lemon, lime. Some strange tequila flavor too. Not great, but is what it is.

Can hoisted upon us by MrChopin, our new sworn enemy. Cloudy yellow green color. Aroma of chemicals. Taste of chemicals. Blah.

Pours barely any head and what little there is goes away quickly. Has a light green/yellowish appearance. No lacing at all. Aromas of lime, citrusy notes. Flavours are quite bitter and sour, just lime and a lemon like taste. Alcohol in the finish. Just awful and glad it?s a tiny can.

8 oz can. Bud Light Lime-a-Rita is a somewhat hazy light green liquid with fizzy carbonation. Nose is fake lime and mock margarita spice. Taste is lime and a bit of tang with a good amount of sweetness. Body thin. overall a decent margarita substitute in a can.

8 oz. can. Pours hazy/cloudy. No head. Aroma of lime, tequila and lemon. Tasted like a badly made margarita.

If you like beer and you want a beer don’t buy this but if you like margaritas and it’s a treat. Make an Arnold Palmer with half unsweetened ice tea and half linearity at a barbaque for a refreshing alternative to beers,

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

Can from Nick Knacks. Needed the rating. Notes of acid, lemon, lime and sugar. Body was thin. Very sweet. Ehhh.
