0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Clear gold color. Nose of 7-up, cheap chemical notes and a touch of skunk to liven it up. The flavor is like a sour soda, really takes like 7-up or sprite to me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours golden bright yellow with a 1 inch white head. Very salty and limey aroma. Sweet and sour flavor, like fruity pebbles. Finishes like honey, corn, and rice, lime peel and other fruity juices. A fruity, sugary cocktail. No real beer taste, so to speak of. Bright, carbonated mouthfeel. Flat, metallic pale american lager aftertaste. Some of you may ask why? I ask the same thing. But at least you get an objective review. Sad thing is, is this better than regular bud light? Than why do you still drink it?

What else can I say about this one? It starts as Bud light and then gets completely overwhelmed by lime flavor. What a waste, if the only way you can drink beer is by masking the flavor with lime then just drink wine coolers.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Very pale gold color with a decent white head. Smells like lemon/lime soda. Near medium body. FIzzy carbonation. Lightly prickly mouth feel. Whatever the citrus beginning was, it quickly turned to typical corniness. May be a bit of salt added. The things that are done to beer. To taste a different way to damage beer try Pink Killer.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Medium sized white very fizzy head that quickly dissipated, virtually no lacing, transparent, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. The aroma was lime and sweet. Wow that’s enough to get one excited about drinking this beer. NOT! The flavor was lime, sweet and some salt. Tingly mouthfeel and light bodied. This is a disgrace to the world of beer to actually call this one a beer.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Beautiful stencilled-type bottle with green-and-white logo shows that Bud cares about its customer aesthetic; purchased at City Market in May 2008, this 12-ouncer pours gracefully into the (appropriate) Michelob glass at a thirst-quenching ice-cold temperature with a vigorous gout of pure-white foam atop its beautiful pale and clear and rainwater body; thankfully this foam fades quickly allowing the first quaff to take place before the thirst becomes overwhelming, and it leaves no nasty residue in the glass, the sign of fine brewcraft....the aroma is just delightful, exactly like Sprite (trademark), lemon-lime soda goodness with nary a trace of nasty beer "malt" or "hops"; so often I’ve wanted my beer to smell like a more wholesome beverage so the kids won’t screw up their faces and think "daddy’s on a binge again, drinking before breakfast" and now I’ve found my solution!.....the flavor that follows suit is almost as wonderful, with that delicious, light and refreshing kiddie soda-pop, almost neutral character doing a good job at camouflaging sinful, gross-tasting beer, but not quite as you can actually taste some "grain" towards the finish....engaging hints of metal and salt at the end almost makes me think I’m drinking it out of a can! Cool! Another wonderful expansion of the adult/child beverage market by that great all-American paragon of quality, Anheuser-Busch. Salud!

Come on, what the hell is the point of this beer. Piss in a cup and squeeze some lime in it and you have a better beer than this one.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Is this actually a beer or is it Sprite with alcohol? The taste is far too citrusy for a beer. I understand that A-B just wants to catch up with Miller, but they did not need to do it this poorly.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a four finger white head that vanishes without a trace of lace. Crystal clear pale amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Strong lime nose. Flavor is a slightly fizzy lime drink, no detectable malt or hops. Doesn’t even qualify for a session beer. Forced to have a real beer - Sam Adams Old Fezziwig. $1.35 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.
