4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Smells like cheap strawberry candy and malt liquor, a little medicinal as well. Looks like hazy red fruit punch. Sweet, weird, boozy, sharp, very fruity in a very artificial way. Light bodied.

SOMETIMES I WANT A VERRY EASY DRINK BEER WHAT I AM SWIMMING OR SHOOTING AT THE RIFELL RANGE. IF ITS REALY HOT AT THE SHOOTIN RANGE I START OF WITH PLINY (ITS JUST THE BEST); BUT THEN GO TO A CASE TO STRAWRETA TO THE DAY. SECOND OFF ALL STRAWRETA IS SMOOTH AND STILL TASTE LIKE BEERS. NOT TO SWEET BUT HUST A SMOOTH STRAWBERRY TASTE. THE TASTE. YOU CAN FEEL THE CARBENATON IN YOU’RE STOMACHE. SECOND OFF ALL THE PRICE IS GOOD. SO WHEN IM SHOOTING SKEETS TO I CAN USS THIS CANS FOR TARGETS.

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 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Petite little 8 oz can poured into a snifter. 100 United States pennies at Safeway. Murky candy red with a sliver of off-white bubbles that wish to cease existence. Aromas of strawberry Jolly Ranchers and gummies, fruit punch. Tastes of strawberry candy, fruit syrup, fruit punch, some booze. Light body with a semi-dry finish.

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.

Stole a couple swigs from my wife’s can. Force-carbonated, fruit punch red. Aroma is pure chemical, artificial strawberry, and cheap tequila. Tastes like a genuine margarita, made from the finest artifically flavored syrups and well tequila. Not my thing.

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.

"... Perfect balance of flavors" is not inaccurate, the problem is none of those flavors is very good on its own, let alone mixed together. Syrupy strawberry and powdery fruit punch with mild lime tang.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not sure how this soda pop thing from a can is ratable at ratebeer, pretty funny, heheh. Red kool-aid color. Yes a soda pop malt beverage fer sure. has a alky laced feel to it, wew. Overall it smells pretty good but then that alky taste has a bit of a kick in the flavor, makes it seems so artificial overall. So, funny, some ciders are rejected because of the fruit but this isn’t! Yes, not a beer but goes down so easy wew. Good thing this is only 8 ounces, the sugar and alky mix would kill my stomach in larger amounts.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
8 oz. can from Safeway. It pours a bright reddish/pink color with a fizzy and disappearing head. The aroma is straight up strawberry preserves, strawberry syrup with massive sugary sweetness. The flavor is the same. Big strawberry, sugar, hints of lime and alcohol. The finish is still sweet, sugary and syrupy. Honestly, this would be a pretty great option if you’re looking for something sweet, fruity and a cheap, quick buzz. Not really offensive if you love tooth rotting sugar. I think I drank about five ounces before I drain poured the rest, but I would probably take this over a regular Bud Light at a party on a summer day.
