This beer is not my type. The color is a yellow straw and taste is about the same with a hint of lime. There just isn't much taste to it. It's very bland and watery. This seems like a girly drink to me. Let them enjoy it. If anything stick with a regular Bud Light.

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.
