236ml can, a single procured at my favourite down-market liquor vendor - thanks, as always. 6% ABV, or so sez the label in front of me.

This beer pours a clear, dark magenta hue, with one skinny finger of fizzy, and nothing else, pink head, which wisps away in no time flat, leaving nothing resembling lace anywhere near the glass.

It smells of edgy, somewhat tangy raspberry juice, and maybe a hint of metallic artificial sweetener. The taste is weirdly grainy, um, malt (more malt candy than malt beer, tho), tart 'n sweet raspberry flavouring (more Jell-O than the real summertime deal), and a soft hint of cold, steely alcohol.

The bubbles are pretty testy at first, but get bored quickly and slag off to wherever they might go, the body an adequate medium weight, as buoyed by adjunct sugars as it is, and so-so smooth, the sassy raspberry essence kind of biting the hand that feeds it. It finishes not as sweet as I was expecting, the Diet Raspberry Soda character still predominating.

I suppose once they lowered the ABV to normal-ish adult beverage levels, the fruity malt liquor associations kind of drop off. Anyways, still not really a beer, the raspberry component completely obliterating the Bud Light [sic] graininess. More evidence that 'Bud Light' is more brand name than actual beer.

Amazingly not awful. Could go really well with a desert such as a cheesecake. Not too sure how to rate this one though since it is not really a beer

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.
