2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
8 oz. can for $1 from Kroger. Pours a clear, bright, cartoonish pink color with no head. This one is the most artificial, and therefore worst, of the 5 Ritas. Strawberry candy, some lime, and not much else. Light-bodied, with a sweet, juicy mouthfeel. This is the one I’d be least likely to have again.

Can. Pours clear red with small pink head that diminishes to nothing. Aroma of strawberry and booze. Thin mouthfeel with acidic strawberry flavor and more like a boozy strawberry soda. Oddly refreshing

Small 8 ounce can, I think it cost me fifty cents. Pours a bright ungodly pink red color, I wonder if this is dying my mouth red. Anyway, the aroma is big sweet artificial berries and sugar. Sugary sweet, sweet tarts, light alcohol. Drinkable, just not much.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pounded straight from the 24 oz can like an adult. Sweet sugar, citrus, and strawberry candy. More sugar, close to cloying, with a finishing sweetness that lingers on the lips. Sweet candy drunk drink.

24 oz can to pint (split with the wife and served over 4 iced cubes). Pours an artificial strawberry with pink head that dissipates quickly. Smells of strawberry and triple sec. Tastes like it smells, only way too sweet, with a syrupy mouthfeel. This may be tolerable if you pureed it with ice, but as it stands, it’s undrinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
3/18/13. 16oz can. This beauty pours a magnificent ruby red like the bottom ray of the most gorgeous sunset on the beach in Hawaii. The pillowy pink head lingers like luxurious bubble bath on the tip of a lady’s finger drawing you in. The fresh aroma is vine ripened strawberries cut with fresh squeezed lime and a dash of ruffled lime leaves mixed with fresh Jamaican cane sugar and a dash of fine Florida orange zest. The flavor bursts across the tongue with tart strawberries dipped in fine lime-infused raw sugar delicately toasted under a torch. Just kidding. Red #40, artificial strawberry and lime, too sweet, boozy, overcarbonated. Eh.

baby can .. mostly strawberry and bad decisions .. you want drunk, get this .. . . I also own a $300 alarm clock that has a "Just A Soupcon Extra Of Shuteye Darling!" button instead of the standard, guttural SNOOZE button.

pours hazy yellow-grey, pink hue, with a disappearing white cap, no lacing. artificial if not rotten strawberries, lime and other citrus presence, cloying sweetness - plain refined cane sugar, tiny grassy notes. surprisingly light carbonation, medium body, sweet and off fruity finish. blah.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Artificial pink in the glass, sweet artificial strawberry nose. The beer starts artificial sweet (I bet there is artificial sweetener in it), nothing natural. Even no beer there. The Lime from the Bud Light is a bit in the background, the alcohol is present.
This is not a beer - and even the few % of beer in this can aren’t tastable. And even for an AlcoPop way too arificial! --> 1/12/1/1
