25 fl oz aluminum can acquired at my local bottle shop. 8% ABV confirmed. Expectations could not be lower. Over 600 calories per can - wow. This is technically a fucking meal. Reviewed live.

Served cold - straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor.

A: Pours a half finger wide head of pink colour which dissipates inside of three seconds - really pathetic.

Body colour is an unnatural pink-red. Nontransparent. Translucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Looks fucking abysmal. Resembles shite koolaid or a crappy juicebox. About as bad as they come. Dreadful.

Sm: Sugary artificial juice. Lime extract, strawberry extract, fruit syrup. Awful and overly sugary. Bubblegum. Blech. No malts, yeast, hops, or alcohol is detectable. An off-putting aroma of high strength. Abominable. Redolent of a child's soft drink.

T: As artificial as any beer I've ever tasted. Extracty syrupy mess. Sweet jesus that's sugary. cloying. Lime. Redolent of a juice intended for the 7 year old demographic. No yeast, hops, alcohol, or malts come through. So it's really not a beer flavour profile at all. Reprehensibly bad. Lollipop, candy, jolly rancher. Ugh. Abysmally imbalanced. Abominably built. Zero complexity; zero subtlety. An awful flavour profile - whether in terms of style or otherwise.

Horrid depth of flavour. Typical flavour duration. Obnoxiously high intensity of flavour in light of its low quality.

Mf: Sticky and juice-like. Might make a good fruit fly trap. Chewy and erosive. I can feel my teeth dissolving. Lightly acidic. Smooth and wet, but by no means approachable or enjoyable. A bit syrupy. Thick. Garbage. Doesn't suit the flavour profile or style at all. Terrible execution.

Dr: There's no way I can finish this can. Interestingly, it's a fair bit better than lime-a-rita, but it's still dreadful. I'll be pouring this reprehensible crap into my freezer bag of budget chicken to use as a makeshift marinade. Better than expected, but I expected it to be downright disgusting. Do people buy this more than once?

For those of us who don't feel like cleaning up the mess after the fact and have a craving for a strawberry margarita, I have to say that this is pretty good!... It's no beer, I know, I live in Asheville, I know what good beer tastes like... but it's a nice alternative....great for an afternoon at the pool; it even tastes like summer...cheers!

Bud Light Lime "STRAW*ber*RITA" pours a watery tomato juice red from a pop top 8 fl oz. aluminum can that is brightly lithographed in red, green, and some white, with a picture of the mixed drink. No foam head or lacing... no eye candy.

Nose is a strawberry shampoo strawberry, not unpleasant, but will make you question why you are drinking what you are reviewing.

Taste is an up front sweet, followed by a sour lime strawberry . It is the artificial sweetener that gives this beverage the poor taste.

After taste is, well... a sour lime strawberry.

Overall, for a low calorie alcopop, this will find a following, I just will not be counted among them.

I drank this straight out of a can, so I gave the appearance an even three. Twas consumed on a Friday night in a run-down deli with some friends. Had the beginnings of an ugly night but it didn't go there thankfully.

Nothing much to say other than this tasted just like a carbonated, strawberry margarita with some bitterness towards the end. Nothing special but no offensive, off flavors. Sharp carbonation. For what it is, its not bad, not sure why some reviewers are so hostile to it. Oh well. Cheers.

Poured from a 24 oz. can. Has a pink color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has some strawberries, not much else. Taste is of strawberries, limes, some sweetness, not bad, but I wouldn't want a steady diet of it. Feels light in the mouth and overall is not a bad beer. I would probably classify this as a fruit beer instead of a malt liquor.
