This beer alone taste like a mango flavored jolly rancher candy...it's too sweet and gives me a headache after just one. However, the alcohol content is at 8%, which is pretty high for a beer. I use this beer to turn dry wines into a sweet bubbly - for this reason alone, I give it a 3.0.

Looks like a carbonated orange soda or Gatorade head light colored peach falls flat quick as the 8 ounce can of 8% Bud Light Lime Mang-0-Rita is poured. Aromatics like a tropical mango explosion candle very perfume like with fusel alcohol notes this is pretty crude. The last time I had a mango margarita I was in Ensenada, Mexico and I earned myself a case of Montezuma's Revenge for steering away from cerveza I assure you that AB has better quality control than the cantinas of that coastal community on the Baja peninsula. God awful sugars collide with medicinal mango tropical acid reflux in a can, this is horrible. I'm done with abuse for today, wow, the mild salty finish will put you over the top if you think your a man tango with this mang-o-rita. Mouthfeel is cloying diabetes inducing sweetness please America stop recommending new variations of the same old shit, this is bad. Overall, I'm thinking about trying the other version I saw at the gas station just for shits and giggles the day after consumption.

236ml can (8oz, I guess?), a single found at a local strip mall likka store, when I was searching for different, but equally ignoble beer offerings - and only an even twoonie, at that!

This, erp, beer, pours a hazy, medium golden-orange colour, with one surprising finger of fizzy, and rather loosely foamy orange-tinted dirty white head, which leaves zilch in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as it quickly evaporates. Looks altogether like Orange Crush - great for soda, feckin' awful for beer.

It smells, from first pop of the can, of thin mango juice, once a sturdy shot of vodka has been roughly applied to it - yup, kids, exotic boozy Slurpees, or more appropriately, a cheap mango margarita - no beer essence need apply. The taste is straight-up alcohol, of the metallic variety, the titular sugary fruit in spades, and very little else - what, you were expecting some Bud Light to shine through? Hah!

The bubbles are at least a tad frizzy up front, and palate tingling, before they soon disappear outright, the body heavy, but in a sugary froot smoothie sort of manifestation, the smoothness pretty much in the same unfortunate boat. It finishes sweet, mango-y (I cannot believe that this is a word in my browser's spell check - um, awesome?), and sort of boozy.

Does this taste bad? Nope. Does it taste like something thrown together, late in a party, when all you have left are the potential ingredients for a mixed drink, so you make with it, and generally enjoy yourselves? Sure. On the other hand, is this beer? De ninguna manera.

Bud Light Lime Mang-o-Rita
25 fl. oz. can, dated "14114 BK51"

Unlike the other Bud Light Lime "Rita" drinks, this one seems a little bit too sweet. It's just too full of mango flavor and sugary sweetness, and without any tartness to balance it. On the label it suggest that you try mixing it with ice, and I'd agree as that might help to water it down a bit. On the other hand, it does taste completely of mango, and if that's what you're looking for this does the trick. I can't recommend it as a beer, nor can I really recommend it as a malternative either, but to everything its own place and season.

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.

Pass the sizzurrp mang... bout to smang this Mang-O-Rita.

Electric neon orange color, looks like orange Crush pretty much. Thin fizzy bubbles momentarily that disappear immediately. No foam, no lace. It never fails, this stuff always reminds me of Dave Chappelle's skit about "purple drink". Unabashedly artificial in every way.

Smells sort of like sweet mango and orange candy, which I can get down with, but make no mistake this is a wine cooler-ific malternative beverage. Four loko baby!

If you enjoy orange soda with a splash of orange dimetapp, this is your joint. Tastes like sweet artificial orange mango soda with that woozy medicinal alcoholic note that lingers in the aftertaste. Blehhh. Fizzy and sweet, mimics orange soda all too well. Can't even taste the lime from the alleged Bud Light Lime addition. Oh well. There is noticeable cheap mango flavor here though. It's not terrible for what it is, but you'd better be drinking it on the rocks at some touristy hotel if you still want to respect yourself in the morning.
