7/24/14. I guess Valdosta is ahead of the -Rita curve. The wife graciously brought home a small single can of this bad boy. First to rate! This luscious brew pours the exact color of apple juice except with a short lived off-white head that fades to nothing almost instantly. The aroma does in fact smell like apple juice and red apples, but with a fake aspect that makes me think of green Jolly Ranchers. Thereís also a definite booziness in the aroma that distracts a bit. The flavor hits strong with red apple and apple juice but transitions mid-palate to a more familiar sweet, lightly tart, limey, Lime-a-Rita aspect so you donít forget youíre drinking a supposed "apple margarita" - the most common of margarita variations, of course. Basically itís on the sort of sweeter side of the -Rita line with a big dose of apple flavoring. Itís not as good as the Cranberry (what is, really?), but not nearly as bad as the horrendous Mango.

If you think this a going to be like a cider then you are wrong, it's overly sweet with no fizz and the apple flavor feels added. Bought a small can for a rate, it's what I expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brystmar (1279) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Looks like a blend of piss and apple juice. Aroma holds apple concentrate, sugar, and hints of Clorox. Repulsively, cloyingly sweet with a harsh, biting sensation midway through that scared woodland creatures back to the forest.

This is awful.

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Big 25 oz can in Vermont. Looks like apple juice with carbonation. Smells like apple juice, with some Golden Delicious giving pear notes. The taste is sweet, but not to the point of being sick. Goes down nicely and refreshing. Does not feel like 8% ABV. Not expecting this from Bud Light Lime, pretty good for cider lovers.

Reid (1920) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2014
25 oz can bought at some ghetto store in Salem while looking for Takis for my daughter. Pours clear gold colour..it had a head like for a SECOND. Aroma sour apple candy! At least its dialed back a bit. thee taste shockingly isnít that bad..the apple candy becomes like red mackintosh apples and there is a semblance of balance from the beer. Its actually better than some American mass produced ciders. Plate is fine considering I thought it would be a cloy bomb. Overall not that bad.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 29, 2014
A rich and deep amber copper body. The nose is rich Jonathon type apples with notes of lime. There is also a sugar cookie note. This tastes fairly sweet up front with the apples. At the back end you get caramel candy and light malt. A sugary sweet pleasant finish. This is tasty with a slightly boozy finish.

Sampled at pinball. This is dangerously eady to drink and really pretty tasty. Apples, cinnamon, and a bit of real beer stuff.

Can. Aroma is sweet apple juice. No head. Taste is moderately sweet with a candy flavor. A little chest burn. A tad hot. Meh.

Westmeister (1788) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
I canít help but buy every variety of this stuff. Damnit. Apple juice pour with almost no head. Super sweet apple juicy/crap beer blend. Really sweet. More cloying than some others, maybe. Still I canít hate it.

Can. Pours a dirty golden with no head. Aroma of apples and malts. Tate pretty much the same.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Dirty pale gold pour with no head and a high effervescence that fades quickly to leave a still appearance. Aroma is apple jolly ranchers and booziness, a little spice and fusel spiciness. Flavor is loaded with greasy fusel notes throughout along with that Jolly Rancher artificial green apple flavor. Oily, syrupy feel throughout, light, but sharp carbonation. Really gross, kinda middle of the road as far as the Bud Light Lime bunch goes, which automatically makes it gross. Anybody who isnít manufacturing candy needs to lose what ever chemical it is that they flavor Green Apple Jolly Ranchers with. This application is really just offensive.
