A: Pours a clear yellow with a puffy white head that recedes to little more than a white ring of lace in only a couple of seconds.

S: Grain husk and straw aromas are immediately evident, but are soon overwhelmed by an artificial lime scent.

T: The entry is sweet and dry, revealing notes of lemon, grass, minerals, straw, and lime juice. The finish is clipped and quenching with intense lime juice and grain husk flavors.

M: As one would predict, this beer is very light in body with crisp carbonation. Very dry, but also very thin and watery.

O: This is like drinking lime juice mixed with cheap mineral water. I'm trying to find something positive to say here, but honestly just can't do it. This is atrocious. It's a sad excuse for a beer, but fortunately for me, I expected no less. My first drain pour in some time.

This beer is a clear pale yellow with a lime aroma that almost hides a hint of rice in the background. The flavor is one-dimensional, all lime. It's not overpowering but that's all there is. The mouthfeel is light. Bud Light Lime is a bad beer. Not recommended.

Please note this review is in the context of adjunct beers and obviously not compared to a microbrewery effort.

Appearance - Looks like a regular adjunct lager.

Smell - see above.

Taste - Very clean and refreshing. Smooth. Hint of lime is nice. When cold and just hanging out is an excellent beer. Similar ABV to other light beers so you'll feel the same. Won't get you hammered unless you drink 15, and even then I keep my balance.

Mouth - is very crisp in the mouth and smooth. Not offensive in the slightest. Will offend a beer snob or a self conscious man -- I am neither.

This is a solid C from me. Sure I would never order it at the bar, but when hanging out with buds or similar activities this is the perfect beer, in my opinion. It's the tailgating beer.
