3.79/5  rDev +52.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 25 oz. can. Has an orange/golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong with mango's, lots of aroma. Taste is sweet, lots of mango, alcohol is well hidden, a refreshing change of pace. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a surprisingly good beer.

Serving type: can

I bought a single can of this because individual cans were on sale at the liquor store, and my sister said I should try it.
Drank straight from the can, so it was hard to see the appearance, but it appeared to be a clear orangeish-yellow. No head.
Strong smell of malt and sweet syrup.
The taste was a light malt, with really strong fruity syrup. Tasted more like fake fruit than mango. It was like drinking a cup of honey, way too sweet.
Mouthfeel was thick and syrupy, with medium carbonation.
This was decent. It's not something I'd want to drink every day, or even all that often. I would try it again. Probably wouldn't pay for it, though.
It seemed more like a strong wine cooler than anything.

Served in a tumbler.

My brother wanted some Bud Light from a nearby 7-Eleven, I wanted something, this one was one of the very few new-to-me things, so...yeah. This stuff pours a partly-hazy Ecto Cooler (seriously, throughout my entire childhood, I thought the Cooler was a bright green inside of those cardboard boxes...alas, my wrongness...) topped by a half-finger at best of some incredibly transitory dirty khaki bubble mist. The nose is dominated by sweet mango syrup, though I think I get some lime juice somewhere in there as well (could just be wishful thinking). The taste mostly confirms the mango domination, but now there undoubtedly is a small bite of tart-ish lime in the background. Honestly, this ain't half bad, so long as you like these flavors in a heavily sweet context. The body is a light medium, with a fizzy carbonation and a rather soda-like feel. Overall, not the best beer in the world by far, but something not all that bad for a straight alcohol-delivery service.

2.5/5  rDev +0.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Hazy golden orange in color, with a small white head, which soon fades away, and moderate, fast-rising carbonation. The lacing is slight.

Aroma: A strong punch of mango greats the senses, seems quite natural, there is also a strong note of alcohol.

Taste: Opens with a strong note of mango flavoring, soon followed by an aggressive alcohol note. The alcohol is not hot or solvent-like, and is more tasted than felt. Later in the taste, the mango seems to intensify. Finishes with a long burst of mango that seems quite natural, and a modest alcohol presence.

Mouth feel: Farly full, with slight carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Its cheap and drinkable, particularly on a hot summer day (4th of July cookout, anyone?). The character is more of a malternative than a beer.

Presentation: Packaged in an eight ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Wal-Mart in Texas in July of 2013 for $1.00 for a single eight-ounce can.

I have held this gem in abeyance with its brethren, awaiting pic approval. The stars have aligned and I am determined to rid my reefer of big azz CANs taking up precious space.

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

Once more, I got a loud Crack!, but given that there was going to be 25 (!) fl. oz. of it, the Glug would not be inverted. This time, it was Orange soda pop! I would find it laughable if A-B/InBev was not marketing this malt beverage as something to be taken seriously. Any head that was produced quickly fizzled out and simply sparkled like pop. Color was a slightly-hazy neon orange (SRM = N/A), more like glowing nuclear waste. On another topic, is mango the new black? It seems to be appearing in a LOT of beers lately, but I CAN only hope that papaya is not far behind. Nose smelled sort of like mango, but in a CANdy-like way, not a natural scent. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, but with lots of fizzy carbonation, reinforcing the whole soda pop analogy. Gad, but this was really sweet, much more that the previous two Ritas, which had some tartness to them. I closed my eyes and swore that I was drinking pop! This was not going to be on my hit parade, lemme tell ya! Finish was cloying and sweet as all get-out. Ugh. I have my annual physical tomorrow and I hope this does not give me diabetes.

2.44/5  rDev -2%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

A: The 'beer' is relatively clear orange-yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mangos are present in the nose—these seem to be artificial.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by artificial flavors of tropical fruit punch, with mangos standing out in particular. Hints of sweetness are perceptible and slight bits of alcohol start to become noticeable as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The mango flavors completely obscure the taste of the underlying beer, but when you consider that this is Bud Light, this might not necessarily be considered a bad thing. It's definitely a lot more drinkable compared to other beers in the style, especially if you drink it cold.
