2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pink with virtually no head. It smells and tastes like strawberries with some booze in the finish. Doesn’t taste bad but I wouldn’t call it beer.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap at Grant’s Farm. This is a tough one to rate....especially the appearance. Aroma of sweet fruit and strawberry. Lime not perceptible. Pours a mostly clear fuchsia with no head. Taste is sugary sweet, puckeringly so. Like a fruit punch, the strawberry seems to overwhelm the "rita" aspects of the beer. Malt barely present. Could not drink it and it was a freebie. Just cloyingly sweet and nothing enjoyable, but it was not contaminated.

CAN 24 OZ.
Well, I did have strawberries and the taste nothing like this. What is tastes like is loads of artificial flavourings from cheapo soda water. Either you drink as a beer or as a soda water - this stuff is undrinkable. And with the amount of alcohol it contains, this crap should be prohibited.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright neon red appearance; virtually zero head. Big strawberry aroma is somewhat authentic? Ok I've got it: this smells exactly like those red sour straws candy.
Honestly tastes pretty good when it's cold; worsens as it warms (no surprise there). Strawberry-forward; only tastes somewhat artificial. Too sweet, yes, but not excessively so.
Man. As much as I want to dislike this, I really can't. It's great for what it is, and even objectively, it's pretty good. Damn.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 8oz can at my parents house, served in a large wine glass. Bright pinkish-red color with soda-like head. Aroma of strawberry puree, light lime and candy sugar. Taste is strong fruity sweetness backed with some booze. Medium body, medium carbonation, sugary, lightly tart with a dry finish. Not a bad drink, borderline beer though.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
8oz can. Drank from can, not over ice as suggested. Pink colour to body. Strawberry syrup aroma. Taste is berry, syrup, tart lime and nasty light beer. Fizzy carbonated body, sticky sweet. Overall, might actually be a decent cooler if you like strawberry, the addition of and claiming to be beer is unnecessary.

Straight from the can while on a golf course on a dare. Tastes like flat Shasta with a bunch of booze in it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A strawberry red color. Smell is alcohol, fruit, strawberry and lime. Taste is much the same. Medium body, very sticky and sweet. Tons of alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
8oz can. Pours neon red, and looks the part, actually. The aroma is good as well, surprisingly so - sweet. Taste is ok at the beginning, just bad at the end. It’s fizzy, right? Which makes sense for a beer-based cocktail but that doesn’t make it any less weird. You can taste the beer at the very end, and it’s unpleasant. It’s also higher calories than you might think as a "bud light" product, at 240. Drinkable, but definitely not that good either. Your call.

gotta admit, this is pretty good...but not for a BEER...this is not a beer at all...very flavorful, quite good strawberry taste that is the right strength...sweet and smooth....pretty darn good amazingly...no complaints really!
