2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orangish-red color with a quick noisy pink head that just disappeared. No head and fruit punch colored is no way for a beer to start out. Nose of strawberry flavored Jell-o powder. Flavors of strawberry, raspberry, lime, popsicle, and Hawaiian punch. This is not beer in any sense. This is a strawberry flavored malt beverage. That being said, this doesn’t taste bad. It just isn’t beer.

Refrigerated 8 oz. aluminum can poured into a white wine glass. Pours Pink with no head. Medium body, no carbonation, and slightly syrupy texture. Taste of medicinal strawberry and some lime. Reminiscent of Hawaiian punch.

Big ass can from local deli in Times Square. Bit weird but in a good way, refreshing on a stinking hot day.

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.

This is my least favorite of the rita’s. It is much to sweet and leaves me with a big headache!

8% shandy? Huh. Strawberry, super sweet, just a hint of tanginess. Some booze. However not as sweet as some.

Neon pink, no head and a rich fakey sweetness. Probably the poorest of the bunch, at least he lime one tasted fake-authentic. Similarly sweet to the others but a bit more frustaringly fake.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
20 oz. Can. Bright pink color with thin white head. Nose is all berry. Flavor is syrupy strawberry soda with light malt. Carbonation is low with a sweet berry finish. Not nearly as bad as I was anticipating. Kind of like soda not so much beer.

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.

8 FL. OZ. can poured into a beer mug. The initial aroma is incredibly sweet and lacks any beer presence. It looks like a watery strawberry margarita. Taste, actually the best of the Bud Light Ritas, that may not be saying to much. it was drinkable but there was no hint of any beer flavor to me.
