3.23/5  rDev +25.7%

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.

look: 1.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 25oz can into a pint glass. I do not know what is wrong with me, giving all the Bud Light Lime 'ritas a try. Uff da.

Appearance: candy purple with a light haze and no head. God save me.

Smell: sweet and fake artificial raspberry. That said -- it's not dramatically worse than a lot of other raspberry beers I've had, if a little more artificial.

Taste: sweet raspberry (too sweet) with perhaps a little beeriness underneath. Not good, but probably the best of the 'ritas I've had so far.

Mouthfeel: light body and lightly carbonated. Nothing here to recommend it, but not completely insipid.

Overall: still an alcopop, not a beer. But drinkable. I have to imagine that I am on a boat or something.
