12 oz. bottle, with some sort of bottling code on the back label. I was surprised to discover that I hadn't yet reviewed this one. "Refreshment with a twist". Expectations are pretty bad; though it has been a long time since I last drank this stuff.

Poured into a miniature snifter glass, for the sake of discovery.

A - It pours a pale golden yellow color; same as it appears in the bottle obviously. Conjures about a finger of white head that fades to a ring quickly. Thin spotty lacing appears. Nothing special to look at. 3

S - The aroma actually isn't half bad, but this thing doesn't smell like beer. It smells almost like a radler, which I happen to enjoy - white sugar and lime extract, with maybe some faint wheat / grain in the background. Virtually no actual "beer" aroma appears, but the smell isn't bad. 3

T - The taste is sweet / grainy, with artificial sugary heartburn-inducing lime / lemon flavoring. Weak and papery. 2

M - Crisp and light-bodied, but that's about all I have to say for this one. 2

Overall, it is basically incomparable to an actual lager and lime combination; I would take a Corona with a lime over this one any day, or a nice radler. Glad to have rated it, but I won't be wanting this one again. Ever.

Bud Light Lime -----2/5.

Appearance was a very pale yellow with no head. Smell was full of lime, but also kind of a chemical scent. The taste was a bud light with artificial lime flavor added. That's kind of all there is to it.

I will avoid the typical taste test format and just give it to you straight:

This beer is great with a little extra lime wedge placed in it as you are floating down a river somewhere down in Texas.

That is the only time drinking Bud is even remotely acceptable. Go with a refreshing wheat beer or blonde ale instead.
