(can - 8 oz) Light pink fruit punch pour. Unlike the previous two I had, the cranberry just didn’t work out as well for me. A bit too tart in the aroma and it clashed hard with the sweetness of the malt and tart of the lime. Heartburn inducing.

Overall not bad. Taste like a modified cape cod. Good for a change from a regular beer but not a beer substitute. It is what it is and should not be compared to other beer styles.

25 ounce tall boy. Pours red with white head. Aroma of manufactured cranberries. Boozy. Spritzy. better on ice. Gets you buzzed quick. Cheap.

24oz can (Drink and rate from Wife’s can)-Pours a purplish with no head. Aroma of cranberry and slight lime. Taste of cranberry and sweetness. This medium bodied brew was overkly sweet but not too bad.

Can. Cranberry-strawberry aroma. Brick red with minimal head. Sweet tart cranberry-strawberry and lime flavor. Hint of malt in the finish. Again - luckily the flavor of Bud Light is nearly completely hidden in this. Not bad but essentially just tastes like a fruit soda. The evilest beer I could find for rating 6666.

This alternative bud light "beers" are hard to rate. To be honest, there a guilty pleasure to me it the cranberry is actually quite refreshing,strong I'm not getting the beer taste but it's still I find it still interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big fucken canned @ home, picked up at RJ’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy maroon purple appearance with no head. Jeez, the aroma is completely full of lime and tart berries. Very artificial and very sweet nose. Completely sugar coating flavor. Super fucken sweet. Artificial berry flavor. Goopy mouth feel. I’m not against completely chugging this one for the boost, but it’s so goddamned sweet. 4/10 chuggability index. Probably will stick to the Lime-a-rita in the future.

Hazy cranberry pinkish, no head. Nose has some boozy light cranberry and a wee bit of lime. The flavor is what you expect, lime, sweet tart cranberry, girly alcohol sweetness.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 13, 2014
A little 8oz can in Seattle. Pours a dark cranberry juice red, a little like a cosmo. no real head. Aroma of cranberry juice, nice enough, otherwise indistinct sour fruit. Very overproduced fruit flavor, cranberry all the way, with sticky hard candy sweetness. Would be interesting to have it as tart as real cranberry. Hard to judge this against ’beer’, of course, but this is entirely drinkable as a sweet alc juice drink.

Cherry koolaid and cranberry nose. Hazy violet, lavender head that disappears without a trace. Cherry, blackberry, cranberry flavor. Does not resemble beer, which is fine by me since the base beer is Bud Light! Light body, tangy, alcohol hardly noticeable. Another in a fine line of rape drinks from Anheuser-Busch </sarc>
