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.

8 oz. can from Safeway. It pours a milky pale green color with a fizzy, disappearing head. The aroma is strong with sweet margarita mix, lime and light alcohol. The flavor is super sweet with more lime, sugar, alcohol. This was slightly less sweet and more palatable than the straw-ber-ita, but still cloyingly sweet and basically tasted like a bad margerita. The price is right though at $1 a can. I can see why some people would want to slam these at a party.

Can from Coco Cove market Honolulu 240115. Looks a lot like a ginger beer when poured into a glass. Big hit of citrusy lime in the nose. Refreshing on a hot day.

czar (4939) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
pours hazy pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white cap, no lacing. sweet and not-so-artificial lime, other citrus, refined cane sugar, rather well integrated booze - maybe pure ethanol, touch of zest with its very light acidity/astringency, plain grass. surprisingly light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, sweet and limey-lightly grassy finish. not horrid.

slowrunner77 (6289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Says a lot about the beer that I like this artificial (yet refreshing) swill significantly better than bud light. lime and salt, sweet, lightly tart, underlying funk from the swill. $1 - can’t complain.

alexsdad06 (6307) - Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2014
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%.

Bulk_Carrier (2355) - Moving East, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2014
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

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!

Can.
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.

Metalchopz (2489) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
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.
