A-red with light head that faded so fast I could not see what color it was
S-cranberry, very sweet, and fruity
T-cranberry taste with a mixed drink feel
M-light carbonation with a mixed drink feel
O-I think this is what they were trying to produce, and they did a nice job

Rating this based on the style, a flavored malt beverage...

From can, poured over ice (as suggested) into a goblet

A-pours purplish-red, less than a finger head of white foam, dissipates quickly

S-Faint cranberry and lime, very faint

T-Cranberry juice cocktail, sugar/corn syrup, and some lime and booze, somewhat tart.

M-Carbonation is lighter than other flavored malt beverages in the same genre, slight effervescence, relatively thin

O-Less syrupy sweet than other beverages in this category. Reminded me less of a margarita and more like a cranberry/vodka drink w/ lime. My wife likes these types of beverages, would buy again for her as it if better than the other two offerings from Bud Light Lime in this category. Less artificial tasting than the Strawberry version and better balance than the original lime version.

The fact that I am FINALLY reviewing this for inclusion in THe CANQuest (TM) illustrates just how difficult an undertaking this CAN be at times. I had several photos submitted, each rejected for various reasons. I finally had to buy a used tripod before I could get a pic that would be approved. Whoosh!

From the CAN: "Limited Winter Edition"; "Margarita with a Twist"; "Try It Over Ice!"; "Enjoy Responsibly Please Recycle".

The loud Crack! told me that it had not lost any of its carbonation since I initially bought it, but given that there was going to be 25 (!) fl. oz. of it, the Glug would not be inverted. Watching it pour into my glass caused me to involuntarily let out a guffaw of laughter. It was magenta! OMFG! It fizzed like soda pop, quickly reducing its head to nothingness, leaving me with a glass filled with what I CAN only describe as looking like beet juice (SRM = N/A), but with great clarity. It did not smell like beet juice, however. It smelled like cranberry jelly on the table at Thanksgiving at my maternal Grummy's house every year when I was growing up. I just could not help but laugh again. It is very difficult to take a beer such as this seriously. Mouthfeel was thin, but fizzy, very much like soda pop. More laughter. The taste was very tart, very much like cranberry and with the addition of lime, it was like drinking alum. I do not think that I will be playing the trumpet right after I am done with this. My lips were puckered harder than last summer, when the Old Lady put me on an eastbound train, possibly out of her life forever. Oh no! This beer is causing melancholia to set in and there was no warning on the label! Finish was reminiscent of a SweeTart CANdy. It had both a sweetness and a tartness, with the emphasis on tart. It was not "Awful" as it seems to be currently rated, but neither was it something that I would want to drink a second time. It was like fizzy Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail. Ha ha ha.

So... I got a mixpack and decided to review these guys. The appearance is bright red with pink foam. The smell is all sugar with some cranberry and lime scents coming through. The taste was very similar with so much sugar it made my teeth hurt after a few sips. I found the aftertaste to be a big turn off. At least the mouthfeel was thin enough and it wasn't too syrupy.
