Ok, admitted, this was sampled on the end of a session of offerings from Rogue, Sierra Nevada and Youngís.... so you can imagine the disappointment already. The pour is clear golden straw, with a soda-fizz head that diminishes to nothing immediately. The nose is spot-on for Sprite soda. The first thing on the tongue is lime flavoring, that somewhat transfers to a mild lemony citrus mid-palate. Not a whole lot going on after that. It finishes and closes with a sour Jolly Rancher-style dryness. No real malt substance; absolutely no complexity. Mouthfeel is seltzery, very watery with high carbonation levels. I understand that A-Busch is trying to capture some of the "craft brew" market, but this isnít the way to go about turning the opinions of more discernible palates.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 A bad combination of a watered down American pale lager and too much lime flavor. Doesnít even taste like beer; just lime. Unlike other light macro brews which merely offer flavorless swill, this beer is quite offensive to the palate in my opinion.

bottle - So they took their usual bland, adjunct laden, watery lager and added some lime flavoring, and thatís exactly what it tastes like. They added lots of lime. I suppose it improved the crappy taste of Bud Light a little bit. What else is there to say?

Exactly what everyone else has said. It tastes exactly like a Corona with fake lime. If you like that then you might like this, but otherwise pass on this one. Same palate and appearance as bud light or corona.

Basically tastes like a really crappy version of Corona with a lime...and I do not like Corona to begin with. I would choose Miller Chill over this any day.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold body. Nasty aroma with a hint of lime. Taste is smooth with some lime. Reminded me of a "corona bomb" - bacardi limon with corona. Not great, but not horrible.

Ernest (6730) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is trace malt (grain), with notes of lime and detergent, hint of ginger. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Virtually no beer character whatsoever (which, given that this is Bud, is not necessarily an undesirable trait). Lime ginger ale with some soap in it. Just another stupid novelty.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Not nearly as bad as I expected this to be... flavor is very limey which covers up the terribleness of Bud Light. Thatís all I got. 12 oz. bottle.

...Pretty much the only rating I can add is that I preferred Miller Chill over this. This beer tastes more like beer and unsweetened lemonade than anything else. For anyone whoís tried a radler, itís pretty much the worse aspects of a radler.

Awful! The aroma smells of lime, sure, but itís liquid lime syrup. The beer doesnít at all smell like beer. Itís a clean yellow color. Itís flavor tasted of beer, with lime syrup. Itís too sweet, and too full of lime syrup. Itís not surprising this sells, must be a good drink for the picnic table at the trailer.
