Bud Light Lime
Lite American Lager
Clear 22 oz bomber with no freshness date poured into a funny looking plastic glass.
Light yellow colored with a white creamy head that receded into a thin, but moderately persistent one. No lacing whatsoever, but it could be the glass. Very clear.
Smells of adjuncts (can't say which) like all its cousins, and of lime extract: not citrus like the real thing, however. No hops.
Tastes like carbonated water spiked with lime extract. Some sweetness in the middle but generally bland. Less disgusting than other "lite" beers because lime doesn't let the yucky taste stay on the palate. Finish is medium dry, but nowhere as crisp and bitter like a real pilsner. There are no hops whatsoever.
Thin and watery.
I didn't find this one disgusting, even though I let it warm up a bit. And I drank the 22 oz bottle easily.

For appearance it is very hard for a beer to appear bad, that's why it gets a 4. That is where the high marks end. The smell has a very faint lime smell to it and is the only think you can smell from the beer. The taste is just lime and nothing more. The mouth feel is light and is like drinking a bud light. Overall the beer isn't good. I wanted to try it as a beach beer and is low in abv and comes in cans. It gave me slight hard burn and is like drinking a watered down corona.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no "born on" date on the bottle that I could find.
APPEARANCE: pours a clear, pale, light yellow with less than 1 finger white head that dissipated completely in about 1 minute, not a trace of lacing, medium carbonation.
SMELL: faint lime, that's all I got.
TASTE: It tastes like lime. I don't know where to go with this, it's fizzy and tasted like lime.
PALATE: light body, medium carbonation, did I mention the lime?
OVERALL: I have to remind myself to "respect beer" at this moment. I understand this beer is popular with frat boys but, it's not for me. This beer would appeal to people who are trying beer for the first time and have nothing to compare it to. It would also appeal to people who do not really like beer. It tasted more like a soft drink than beer.
