Appearance: Hazy light yellowing color, rather like grapefruit juice, with a small white head which soon fades to oblivion. The carbonation is robust and fast-rising, the lacing slight.
Aroma: The aroma is very similar to a wine cooler: aggressively sweet, and candy-like, reminiscent of Seven-Up soda with a twist of lime, but completely over-the-top. There is a faint whiff of alcohol in the aroma.
Taste Opens with a wave of intense sweet and sour flavors, like candied grapefruit. Soon after the alcohol asserts itself strongly, with a noticeable warming sensation. The alcohol has a vodka-like characteristic, with no notable complexity. As the taste progresses, a flavor similar to Sweet-Tarts (r) manifests itself, and largely carries the taste to a close. A little grapefruit rind bitterness brings the taste to a close.
Mouth feel: Thin, with a bit of aggressive carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Not very beer-like, but, in all fairness, Bud Light Lime-A-Rita is not that bad if you know what to expect. It makes for a refreshing, cheap, and easy summer buzz.
Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-four ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in May of 2013 for $2.59 for a twenty-four ounce can.
Serving type: can

Best out of the bunch although I still wasn't a fan. At least with the original there are some salt and real Margarita flavors instead of just a sugar overload. The appearance was greenish yellow with a smell of lime. The taste was sugary but more authentic than the other blank-a-rita's. The mouthfeel was also better than expected and not too overly thick.
