Poured from 16oz can into a pint glass. I've been wary of reviewing more malt liquors, as it means I have to drink them. But after reading all of this beer's positive-troll (is this a thing?) reviews, I just had to give it a try.

Appearance: somewhere between pink lemonade and ruby red grapefruit juice. No head, light effervescence. I'm almost surprised this is considered beer.

Smell: a handful of lime Runts and a handful of strawberry Runts dissolved in a Bud Light. While in some contexts this would not be a bad aroma, as a beer it is pretty much the worst.

Taste: like the aroma but not as pleasant. This is an alcopop. It may not deserve to be listed on this site.

Mouthfeel: light and unexciting. It could potentially be worse.

Overall: not a good beer. A decent alcopop.

I don't get why everyone's dogging on this stuff. It is by far the best strawberry/rita beer on the market.

Normally, when me and my bros go out fishing, it's always Coors Light or Miller High Life, but I don't like my beer to taste like beer. My go tos are either Cantillion Lou Pepe Kriek or Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Ita, which is pretty much the same beer, only less expensive.

For a treat during the winter, microwave it and drink it like a mug of hot apple cider.

Pours a bright red with a lot of sugar on the nose. This wasn't my kind of drink so maybe I'm biased but I did not care for the taste. Overly sweet with very little in the way of any real flavors. You get a punch of artificial strawberry and then it's just pure sugar. No salt or lime I could detect to make it like a margarita.
