Tall, slender, 24oz can with a picture of a margarita glass with a lime wedge in it. My first thought was "oh no, what have they come uo with this time?" I also thought all Bud products had a born on date on them, but I couldn't find one on this can. Still, being a brand new product, I doubt if I have to worry about a freshness date. $2.09 at Springbrook Liquors in Bloomingdale, IL.
The beer poured a cloudy lemonade color with a huge 4-finger white head, but zero lacing.
The beer smelled like a cross between lemonade and limeade.
Tastes like limeade spiked with alcohol. Not a bad flavor, and definitely not as sickening sweet as their TILT products, but not very beer-like either.
Light to medium bodied with very low carbonation. The alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasant. At least you know you're not drinking straight limeade.
Not that good as a beer, but a decent summer thirst quencher.
P.S. Since there was 24oz of it, I took half of it and put it in a blender with a shot of tequilla and a cup of crushed ice to see if I could make a decent margarita out of it. Don't try it. All you get is a diluted foamy mess. The blender turns it so foamy that it takes 20 minutes for the foam to die down so you can drink it, and then it's so diluted it doesn't taste very good.

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.
