It comes in great BIG cans & tiny cans – That says “Homerun!” to me. I don’t see those imported Mexican cervesarias letting it all hang out there by putting ‘ritas in a can. The taste is great. No need for salt on the rim. This isn’t some gimmick like another 100 IBU IPA. This is the real deal.

8 ounce can for the masses to buy at a dollar a piece, what else can you say. We might as well start reviewing Four Loko because the Watermelon is so much easier to pound than the grape flavor. Pours a slightly haze cherry lollipop red, this is candy folks. No head just red, nose is like strawberry reserves jam mixed with cheap alcohol about to be poured into an adult frozen margarita machine that they have for 11 bucks a piece at those outdoor summer concerts. Kids all I'm catching from this beverage is diabetes, I don't care if it's 8% abv it's putting my liver into shock, should the liver metabolize the alcohol or the high fructose corn syrup. Drink this I guarantee you will be fat and so will your liver. Flavor overkill Jolly Rancher strawberry with a backend of salt and lime juice, get me out of this nightmare. The traditional lime-a-rita was acceptable this is however the most disgusting and devilish nectar of the whores ever produced. Unpalatable and yes I like both varieties of strawberries vine ripened and artificially flavored, there's no beer going on here it's just blurred vision in a can. See the light, hell turn on the red light if you have to and avoid this beer like a case of gonorrhea.

236ml can, a not so surprising find in my local liquor store's remainder bin.

This beer pours a clear, stupid orange-tinged bright pink colour, with zero head, zero lace, and zero beer cred thus far, so sorry for this short-ass paragraph.

It smells like those strawberry yuk-a-fluxes we had back in first year university - sugary strawberry concentrate from the grocery store, whatever random citrus fruit anyone had kicking around, and a hefty dose of the best vodka you could afford - read: not all that smooth. The taste is more of the same, but with a subtle, oh so subtle reference to the cheap lager spilled on the floor earlier by those dudes who insisted on pursuing their small-town adherence to such.

The carbonation is pretty low-key, in the vein of coolers everywhere, the body a hefty medium weight, all attributable to that fake fruity, sugar inherent nature - any smoothness not really on the table as such right now. It finishes mostly sweet, sugary, and still a forgery in its prominently sugary character.

I can't hate this outright - sure, it's nothing like a beer, so the end score reflects that, but the actual taste is ok, once that initial hump is passed by. Not beer, ok, but for a general fruit admirer this is ok, which I know is getting way off-topic, but I'm only keeping in tune with the brewer's intent here, as it were.

8oz can purchased for $1.00 at Kroger.

A - bright pink; fizzes as it pours; no head to speak of; this looks like Cherry 7-up

S - artificial strawberry and some lime; very sweet; Kool-Aid-esque

T - artificial strawberry, faint lime, sugar

M - sticky, crisp, light to medium bodied

Strangely this isn't that bad. If you approach it like a Strawberry Margarita and you're in the mood for one, this probably does the trick. This certainly won't hold sway with any hardcore beer drinker and it's probably anathema to snobs and beer zealots, but for those with an open mind this isn't so bad.

Bud Light Straw-Ber-Rita
24 oz. can
$2.99 @ Stop N Shop Liquors, Camden, NJ

Not unlike the Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, this is not really a beer, but a malternative version of a margarita cocktail. This version, however, is of a strawberry margarita. It's bright and sweet, and very strawbery-like in flavor - almost too much so. Given the choice I'd stick with the Lime-A-Rita.
