Pours, not quite pale yellow, like dirty water. I donít usually give "1" for appearance anymore, but this is pretty shitty looking. Lime citric sweet aroma. The flavor is sweet citrus, lime/lemon, and maybe a hint of salt.

8oz can, $1 from the gas station. My first attempt at this series of "beer". Pours a grapefruit juice color, slightly hazed. No real lasting head, but noticeable carbonation. Aromas of lime kool aid, seltzer. Flavor is very sweet and just lightly tart. Low carbonation, thin mouthfeel. No alcohol detected, covered up by all the sugar. Really no excuse for not finishing this, itís only 8 ounces and I need to finish up my buzz. Finishes with a lime candy flavor and a lasting sweetness. Ehh...

8oz can, purchased from a Tops. I couldnít resist. I had been drinking Margaritas all weekend long and this didnít seem much different, especially considering that it was only $1. After 12 minutes in the freezer, I cracked this delectable treat. In a rocks glass, it was milky and looked of fresh sewage, green tint and all. Aroma lacked alcohol, surprising at 8% and stank of fake lime flavor. This wasnít nearly revolting, except for the diabetes causing level of sugar that made this taste sweeter than 15 bags of skittles eaten all at once, if that were possible. Toxic sugar alcohol sludge.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2014
8 oz. can for $1, found at Kroger. Tried along side the other 4 varieties. This one was my favorite of the bunch. It pours a margarita color with a small white head that lasts as a wispy film and ring. It smells and tastes like a margarita, too, with lime juice, agave, and some sweetener. Thereís some tartness in there. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a dry, tart, sweet mouthfeel. Slightly artificial, but overall itís exactly what it promises to be.

Can from the grocery store. Pours a hazy light gold. Aroma of limes and watered down agave. Taste exactly what I expected: a bud light margarita.

8oz can. Lime and booze is what we have here. Reminds me of a vodka and lime, which I like, but not of beer, which it is supposed to be. Maybe a little grain is the aftertaste. Drinkable alcohol delivery system, cheap and dirty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tried it once (thatís enough). Redeeming characteristics : Very magarita-like (if you like those, this is for you); but very little beer taste and over-the-top sweetness. ABV at 8% makes up for not being beer-like. Cheap buzz basically.

Served as a slush with mixed in Mangorita. Jsut pure booze, didnít think you could ingest this much booze into a beer. Also heavy artificial lime.

Can in the TLF checking out the beach options. Lime dominates the aroma and flavor here with not much else happening. It really does taste fairly similar to a margarita but not much like beer at all.
