1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Can: Thanks, Kevin... I think. Ruby-ish red, though not that dark. Pink hued with a pink-tinted head that lasts for about 4 seconds before fizzling away. Aroma of cheap, sweet strawberry flavoring and margarita mix. Not much else. Taste follows suit with excessively sweet strawberry flavoring, mildly sharp tartness, margarita mix, some booze. Again, this isn’t really beer and it isn’t really good (far too candied and sweet), but I’d probably take it over a Bud Light.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Focuses more on the Margarita than the beer,strawberry taste like a wine cooler tasty enough with a beer fizz. High alcohol but not punching

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
236 ml can free from promo team on College Street. Pours a cloudy watermelonish red with basically no head. Aroma is cherry/strawberry/watermelon candy, sugar and a little lime - not unpleasant, but nothing like beer. Taste is sickly sweet with candyish, artificial strawberry (and maybe its the colour but I can’t help but also feel like its reminiscent of watermelon) and sugar. Somehow both syrupy and thin. Ugh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Exactly what you would expect. The aroma is lime, strawberry, not much else, slight maltiness. The appearance is yellow/red in color, white head. The flavor is strawberry, lime, not like a beer at all. No evidence of its 8% ABV. The finish is sweet, fruity. Not the worst thing Bud has ever done to a beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours hazy pink with no head. Aroma is of artificial lime, sugar, artificial berrie flavors. Taste is of artificial strawberrie, sugar, lime, alcohol. Palate: Light-medium body. Very low carbonation.Sticky mouthfeel. Overall: Not too good. Very artificial. Not really drinkable. Drain pour indeed.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
8oz can. This is pretty much strawberry kool-aid. A bit boozy and super sweet. Meh, not my thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Grocery Outlet. Looks bright red in the can. Smells sweet. Some strawberry margarita smell. It really does have a genuine margarita flavor. Pretty refreshing and easy sipping.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from Kroger. Stubby. Pink pour with a fizzy head. Aroma is just crazy sweet candies. Taste is strawberry stuff, super sweet, a then it all fades away leaving some Bud finish that lingers forever.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Part of their mixed pack, found on a trip in Maine. Pours a red colour with pink hue. The head is pink and fizzes away quickly leaving no lace. Fake candy strawberry smell with hints of cherries. Again, artificial strawberry notes with the lime finish. Mild sourness, and a little syrupy. A little too sweet, but decent in the sun.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 14079-BK10. Red pour. Is this a beer or a Tropicana Twister? Quick eruption of white fizzy head. Gone in a flash. Strawberries and lime juice inhabit the aroma. No malt or hop character to speak of. The body is light and refreshing. OK, I’ll give it that. It is supposed to be that way. As for the taste...it is like drinking a wine cooler or an Ocean Spray fruit drink. I will say that the 8% ABV is definitely well-masked and will creep up on you with a vengeance. Otherwise I am prone to ask - "Why does this beer even exist?"
