So we got the Bud suite at the Nuggets game. Free Bud beer. I'd never had Bud Light Lime.

Nothing special about the appearance; drank straight from the bottle, which I think helped things. Made it drink quicker. Still didn't finish it.

The lime is a bit of misnomer. It's more like lemon Pledge mixed with Fruit Loops. Not as sweet as, say, Leinenkugel's Sunset crap. But this is still a bad beer.

Will never drink again

Didn't take the time to care about age.
You can tell how this beer looks if you have ever seen a bud product, it is like that. In a clear bottle. Smells like lager and a bit of lime air freshener. Flavor is adjunctional and has a strong lime character. While cold, the lime is a little sharp, and as the beer warms, it actually comes out a bit more. Thin with insane carbonation and a semi dry finish. This beer is poorly done, but I can't help but enjoy it when out on the lake in an intertube.

A: Clear yellow pour, very bubbly
S: Overwhelming smell of citrus, limes
T: Sweet, definite up front lime taste, soda-like, some skunkiness towards the end
M: Watery, fizzy
O: Not horrible but tastes more like a soft drink than a beer, good for those who don't really like beer and need something sweeter, I'd probably look elsewhere if this was a choice

Bud Light Lime is much more flavorful than normal Bud Light. It has the taste of limes and sugar, with a malty backdrop. This flavored light lager is popular, and I see why. The mild taste of this brew will not satisfy hop lovers, but should be a welcomed alternative for fans of the original Bud Light.
