1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
24 oz can into a glass.
A: Pours a hazy pink color. There’s NO head here; a fizzy wisp of white foam quickly fades away to nothing.
S: It smells like frozen strawberry daiquiri mix. I don’t really get any detectable lime notes or (thankfully) Bud Light-esque beeriness.
T: Massive amounts of strawberry sweetness prevails over everything else. I have to dock tons of points for its chemical aftertaste and non-existent beer qualities. As a malternative, eh, it’s not horrible.
M: There is a huge amount of lingering sweetness - it honestly feels chemical on the palate. I will give it some credit for going down pretty easily given its questionable nature and 8%.
O: A horrid excuse of a beer, plain and simple. However, it’s an okay malternative that will quickly get you drunk. Go into it with those expectations and you may not hate it. Personally, I won’t touch this stuff ever again.

Rating #1850 - 2015.08.06 - Girlfriend-purchased garbage that is taking up valuable food fridge space. This isn’t beer folks, this is malt-beverage-premix-alchopop stuff. Artificial medicinal strawberry, alcoholic, pre-made margarita that somehow has beer as a starting point. Might be suitable as Gettin’ Laid Lemonade.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very pinkish red. Fruity and sweet, but very synthetic and carrying a tartness and medicine like flavor. Blah.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
237ml (8oz) can bought at The Q-Club in SoHo, Central.
Translucent water melon juice colour; Virtually no head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with notable slight carbonation; Very sweet aroma of strawberry concentrate, lime juice, water melon, grape juice, cocktail booze, lemonade and sugar; Very strong sweet taste of tequila-like alcohol, with loads of sugar, liquorices, strawberry concentrate, water melon juice, lemonade and lime juice; Medium body, Thick and boozy palate; Mouth feel is sluggish, sugar-loaded margarita / cocktail booze mixed with sweet strawberry concentrate all the way. It’s not really strawberry syrup as it’s more juice than sugar, but bad anyway. Also there are lingering water melon juice and lemonade, both were sugar-contaminated. No malt or hops whatsoever. Really bad… Bitterness is mostly from the cocktail liquorices, quite notable but not enough to counter the sugar for an overtly sweet-cocktail bitter finish; Wet after taste. Very easy and extremely sweet to mouth.
Comments: If you think the original Lime-A-Rita is bad enough, this strawberry-infused “Rita” is much worse - sick, almost medicial sweet strawberry overwhelms what’s left of lime and lemonade. The presence of water melon taste is not welcoming. The whole thing is sickly sweet and as artificial as ever. Terrible!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Small sample from a small can. Big strawberry, sugary sweet aroma, not bad. The flavor is worse, mega sweet, sugary, fruity garbage juice. Pretty hard to drink this boost.

Can. Sampled at gregwilsonstl’s tasting. It poured a hazy red color with no head. The aroma was of artificial lime, sugar and strawberry. The taste was similar to the aroma with more strawberry, sugar, lime and some alcohol.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
What in gods name is this? It's a taste so indescribably bad that I cannot place it. Sure it's strawberry, they said. It has 8% abv they said. Mix it with ice, they said. The taste is like a sugary kids cereal that is so cloying that it sticks to your tongue and roof of your mouth. The aroma is booze and you certainly get a nose full of it. The color of the "beer" is like someone played a cruel joke with red food coloring and Kotex. This will never pass through my lips again. I just needed to review it. 25 Oz. can bought at Schnucks Market in Saint Peters, Missouri.

fiery strawberry, thin frothy white ring. Stinging fiery strawberry nose, sugar burning harshly, chemical bitterness. Fruity palate is soft, watery but no chemicals, thin fizzy end. Learn the scale n00bs.

Giant 25oz can thanks to Mr Chopin. What a jerk! Pours a bright pink with no head. Nose of jam and soda. Flavor is bad, nasty cheap strawberry soda. Tastes like bad decisions.
