1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light gold body with a bright white head. The aroma is like Sprite with a lime wedge added. There is also some Rice Crispies cereal. The taste is watered down sprite with some old cheap cereal. Wow, this is pretty bad and inferior to Miller Chill. Especially as the lime is not just a hint, but the dominant character and itís done in a cheap, fake way.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2008 Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a massive white head that fades away. Has a pretty nice lime aroma and taste to it. The lime mixes well with the Bud Light. Pretty easy to drink and is refreshing. Is still good after it warms up a bit. Reminds me of Tequiza and Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus, but better. Would be nice to have on a hot day. I wouldnít mind buying this again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottled, not poured into a glass (why pretend?) straw color, clear bottle, and little to make it look any better than it probably is. bud light aroma (rice, hints of malt, imperceptible hops) and sweet lime. "natural lime flavor" clearly does not mean actual lime, because the lime flavor is syrupy and not citrusy or tart. drinkable, not really bad in any way, just not good. i suppose itís better than corona with a lime - but thatís kind of a forced compliment. couldíve been a lot worse, frankly. i would drink it again if it were less than $1 a bottle.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 12 ounce bottle drank stright out of the bottle from Kamís in Champaign IL. My buddies and I have a saying that a beer that comes out of a clear bottle cannot be good. I definitely agree with this statement, but for what it is, Bud Lite Lime is not that bad. The aroma consists of a lot of lime and citrus flavors along with the usual Bud "grass" smell. The taste is not really horrible for what it is. I tatsed a lot of lime and citrus. This is definitely a lawnmower beer that someone could drink a lot of. Not a bad beer for what it is...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Samís Club. Poured clear light pale color with an average rocky white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing. Medium sour citrus aroma. Light body with a watery texture with soft carbonation. Light bittersweet flavor with a bitter finish of short duration. Drinkable summer brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma contains a heavy dose of limes and little else. The apperance is a pale yellow color with a small fading head. The flavor is mainly limes with some hay and lemon notes as well. There is not much "beer" flavor going on here. The aftertaste is slightly sour. The mouthfeel is rather carbonated. This tastes like a sprite or a lime ade more than anything. Overall not bad and it does not have off flavors like I tasted in Miller Chill. Could be worse but it would work on a hot 100 degree muggy Tennessee summer day.

Of the "Lime Pale Lagers" I have tried this one has the best aroma. It is true lime and just enough of it. However, you could make this one at home. Take some Bud Light and add lime.

Im not sure about the lime craze thats going on with beers these days. That said I have to admit this one is pretty good. Nice crisp lime flavor. Nothing I would buy but if offered to me I wouldnt turn it down.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale with a quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is lime, light maltiness, corn, fruity. Taste is lime, seems close to miller chill... I get the same fruit loops type taste to this brew. It could be worse though.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle and served in pint glass: Straw hued with a fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of lime soda, DMS, cereal, and some mineral water. The taste is basically lime juice and light grains with a short veggie aftertaste. Well it is thin and lively, I guess it would be as refreshing as normal BL. Unlike the Blue Moon Spring Ale which had some taste this is pretty much no different than drinking a bad lime soda. Makes Miller Chill look world class. (I like lime and hated this, that should tell you something)
