2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 Bottle, did not pour. Looks a very pale, watery golden color, smells very strongly of lime. Tastes almost like a soda... very little beer flavor detected. The lime is definitely the dominant flavor up front, finishes with a wheat/cereal flavor. Interesting... definitely better than bud light because the skunk flavor is masked with the lime, but I can hardly call this a beer. I suppose it has it’s purpose poolside or at a BBQ, but I would prefer something else otherwise.

Humm, well, pale super filtered yellow brew, strong aroma of fresh lime but definitely bud light in disguise. Not much to this water beverage

Bud Light meets lime Sweet-Tart candy. I tried a sip off of a friends, and was quickly displeased. I’d rather have an actual cerveza with a real lime.

golden yellow pour with a thin layer of white froth. smells like sprite. tastes like a corona with lime and less carbonation with a cereal flavored aftertaste.

12 oz. twist-off bottle, coded lot/freshness date on the back of the bottle, sampled in a pint glass.
L: Crystal clear pale straw golden with a fast rising white head that I can hear fizzle as it retreats into a soapy skim. Fizzling sound Bud Light Lime loudly emits reminds me of a can of soda poured too quickly. I can spy a few stray bubbles flowing from the bottom of the glass to the top.
S: The sweet aroma of lime soda with a chalky lime ’Sweet Tart’ candy in the background. No trace of anything that remotely resembles something called beer.
F&T: Spritz-like carbonation at first, but the carbonation quickly dissipates to a moderately active level, softly crisp feeling light body that is almost as easy as water to drink.
Sweet lime soda, but not too sugary, is the dominate taste, supported by a chalky candy flavor. As it warms, the lemony cornmeal Bud Light taste sneaks out, but in no way does it interfere with the taste of the soda pop lime. I have to say, A-B has done a good job of masking any beer flavor this might possess. And I believe I might actually prefer this to Miller Chill. I wonder if Coors makes an lime infused beer?
I don’t know, I guess this passable on a hot, humid summer evening, it is, in its own way, lightly refreshing, takes the edge off watching the Cubs lose to Cardinals tonight in the bottom of the ninth. Other than that, unless its free, I won’t be having another Bud Light Lime anytime soon.

Happy 4th of July - flavor includes a hint of lime and not much else.

This was a lot better then expected. Pours straw yellow with hardly any head. Better then regular Bud Light. And 100 times better then its competitor Miller Chill

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a still gold, like corona. Head is white, and releases an aroma of grains and lime. The lime flavor is synthetic in that it doesn’t have the citrusy freshness and sharpness of a real lime. Heavy doughy, bready malt on tongue. On a hot day this can be ok to drink, but it is very low quality

Basicly this tastes and smells like a premade corona with a lime in it. I have heard many people say how drinkable it is and what not but in my opinion it’s not. I thought it also tasted like spree candy in a bad light beer. overall, I think it’s awful
