COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer based margarita is now introduced with strawberry flavoring. This is our take on the traditional margarita. Beer drinkers were already mixing Bud Light Lime into margaritas to create ‘beer ritas’; Lime-a-Rita just adds a new level of convenience by providing a beverage with the perfect balance of flavors.

Trying all of the Bud Lite Rita line up due to trying the margarita one a few days back. Haven’t rated that one yet but will be as soon as I am drinking another one. So anyways, this one is a strawberry pink with no head. That is to be expected if this was a drink made with juice and liquor so this is not a down side because it still is loaded with carbonation. The taste is spot on for a Margarita with strawberries. I am a huge margarita fan in the summer and make my own as well using traditional Taquila and a salt rimmed glass. The flavor from this is almost the exact same as that. There is a bit of salt flavor and a bit of Taquila like twang that make this the next best thing to the real thing. With the flavor about as good as it can probably get and the kick it packs in there makes this one my new summertime favorites.

GoufCustom (1409) - HONG KONG - APR 3, 2016


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!

Pours a bright pink color without any head. Strawberry syrup flavor. Sugary sweetness lingers.

ajnepple (4658) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2016
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.

REDDOGICE (243) - nantucket, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Panzuriel (1686) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2015
8 oz can. Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita pours a pinkish red, with fizzy white bubbles. Nose is strawberry frozen margarita. Taste is similar. think about the quality of margarita you get out of those slushy machines but in a wine cooler form, in a can. You’re about there. Have no illusions of this being great. It’s a stand in for a mixed drink, that is ten times easier to serve and drink. As long as your expectations are low, it’s passable.
