The first thing the hit me was an awful smell. It had the faint whiff of lime, beer, and sewer. The taste was a horrendous combination which the fake lime only hurt.

Bottle. Clear, straw color. Aroma is a hint of fake lime flavoring. Flavor is barely there. Corn and rice with a mixing of fake lime flavoring. Watery mouthfeel, acidic, wet paper. Makes you thirstier. I canít believe I used to drink this stuff by the gallon. Iím officially a beer snob...

While Anheuser Bush makes the classic Budweiser and Bud light, Here the brewery attempts to make a Corona extra hype type experience at a cheaper price. The idea of cutting a lime wedge with a Corona extra with Bud. Simply put it does not work unless your having D/Tí tremors and any alcohol would stop the shaking.
Aroma: cheap, alcoholic ,metallic despite in a bottle,with lime on top.
Appearance: pours clear and consistent so a (2)
Taste: Bud light with lime added as advertised not much else.
Overall: Why did Anheuser Bush waste their time on this then develop Lime a Rita as a second try? Burp there comes that acidity,metal and strange feeling I could beat the Alien creature from "aliens" in a metal melting contest if I puked this up.
Watery with Budweiser already falling to an average 55-60 rating these days ,Anhueser Bush has veered far from their natural carbonation an beech wood aging with this offering barely above swill.
A drain pour and tums experience to be avoided

This beer is very light, so much so that defining its flavor is hard. its like a less flavorful corona. like I said very little beer flavor. mixed with lime it is excellent and is very easy to drink. this would be a great one, maybe the best one, for people sensitive to bitter hops.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-16-12 -
Poured from bomber into pint glass
Appearance Ė Pours a straw color with a big pure white head. The head fades very fast giving almost no lacing.
Smell Ė The aroma is heavy of lime mixed with a lighter paper like aroma.
Taste Ė The taste begins with some malt flavors of corn, rice and wheat. A big taste of lime then comes to the tongue early in the taste where these flavors remain to the end. Surprisingly it is much more flavorful then I would have thought.
Mouthfeel Ė Very light with a higher level of carbonation. Fitting for the low abv and very lime flavor of the beer. It is easy to drink.
Overall Ė Actually this is much better than I was anticipating. It had a lot more flavor (while most in lime, it was a lot more flavor) then the average light beer.

Tastes like bud light (boring corn flavored fizz) with some RealLime(TM) poured into it as an afterthought. Iíve no idea what kind of person could spend money on this and actually believe they made an educated and great tasting purchase.

What a (bad) memory... At least I didnít pay for it, nor did I finish it... Some kind of fizzy wash-up liquid, so chemical that I probably wouldnít even pour it on my plants :(((

Oh boy, how many times have I had this and uh...well, hereís the rest of my thoughts.
When this was poured out, it was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a slightly hazy to transparent yellow to golden color with a quickly dissipating bubbly foamy white head. Lacing, there wasnít any.
The smell, well, if anything, they got the lime in there, but does it smell authentic, hmmmm....honestly I canít tell so I guess as long as its there and as many times as I have smelled this, one canít argue. Budweiser got it.
The taste, well, its lime alright and honestly once again, it smells authentic.
The palate = exceptionally light on the body. Whoah, wow, this is light and very sessionable.
Overall, a lime light beer = always for the Summer beach drinkers. But considering I donít have any "real" beaches where I live, ask me if I would want this one again? Sorry, no thank you.

It has a bright golden color with a bright white head. The head pours big and fizzy before retreating down to a thin layer of random sized bubbles. It leaves little to no lacing on the glass. The aroma had a heavy fruity lime citrus character that dominates some light grainy cereal notes. Its flavor is fruity tasting like a bowl of Froot Loops or Fruity Pebbles breakfast cereal. Malt flavor is light, sweet and grainy with a good dose of imitation lime flavor mixed in. The body is light and refreshing with a smooth slightly slick texture and modest carbonation. Fans of malt beverages like Zima or Smirnoff Ice may like this beer as well as some non beer drinkers. I actually liked it on that level but as a beer it was way off balance.

It actually looked like a beer for all of 3 seconds but the head quickly faded. The aroma has a touch of lime in it. The taste does as well & then fades into nothingness. The palate becomes quite watery as the flavor fades. Awesome stuff - NOT!!!
