I try to rate beers to style. This is really a malt beverage or alcopop not beer as such. It's not bad for what it is and makes a nice change from beer. It pours a purple color with a minimal white head from a ten ounce can. The smell is sweet and has some raspberry notes. The flavor is on the sweet side but definitely tastes like raspberry. It's decent if this is what you are looking for but it doesn't really resemble beer.

Serving style : 8 oz can, poured into 8 oz glass. 8.0% ABV. WHOA!

Appearance (2) : Grape Juice cocktail, opaque, with no head. Like a raspberry grape soda.

Smell (3) : Smells like raspberry soda with a faint pinch of alcohol.

Taste (4) : Pretty good actually. Lots of raspberry flavor. It's nothing like a beer, so if you're expecting beer (or Bud Light), you'll be in for a rude awakening. For a mixed drink in a can it's better than decent. It tastes like a rich, fruity raspberry soda with an alcohol kick. Just a hint - a hint of sour grain muskiness on the backside but not enough to even think about.

Mouthfeel (3) : don't even know if this drink deserves a mouthfeel category. It's carbonated and a little cotton-candy like with a residual syrup on the finish. A little bit of that grain alcohol surfaces as well.

Overall (3.23) : I like this "beer". It's actually a margarita in a can, and I think AB needed to market it under a brand name that would sell, so they slapped "Bud Light" on the can and called it good. It's nothing at all like a Bud Light, and pretty much nothing at all like a beer. For what it is, it tastes great - but if Beer Advocate has these things on here, they might as well start adding Smirnoff and Mike's to the list of reviewed products, as this is NOT a beer. I don't quite know how to rate this. I enjoy it, so I guess I'll rate it how I want.
