Cran-Ber-Rita has a thin, fizzing-away, pink head, a semi-opaque, magenta appearance, bubbles, and no glass lacing. The aroma is of cranberry cocktail, and the flavor is the same, with tartness and no bitterness. There is sweetness and, perhaps, pale malt. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Cran-Ber-Rita finishes mainly dry.

Aroma is slightly artificial/funky cranberries and a good hint of sweetness. The flavor is similar to the arom with the artificial/funky cranberries being overpowering with a sweet finish.

50 cent 8 oz can out of the bargain basket.

Pours a cranberry jelly color with a diminished head that rivals the length of seeing a shooting star. 80% opaque.

Aromas of margarita mix and lime salt, a touch of ocean spray and 7 up.

Quite strong on the alcoholic presence, with a short-lived antiseptic-like throat spray flavor that fades to a more fruity, light cranberry cocktail juice taste. The alcohol is felt almost immediately in the tummy and the carbonation stings the tongue. Finish has the ripe bitterness of cranberries which may be the only thing genuine here. Ugly dryness rivaling sore throat on the finish, which actually walks in tandem with the throat spray flavor.

Overall the Cran-Brr-Rita is a nice attempt but falls short just as all the other "beers" in this line do. Too much antiseptic, only to be covered up by pure sugar and some artificial cranberry additive.

I'm giving it a 2 overall, which actually feels somewhat generous.

As most other reviewers are stating, you almost can't rate these "Rita" products as beer. However, if this was brought to me in a glass and I was told it was a cooler, I would be fairly impressed. Juicy, somewhat artificial cranberry flavour. No detection of the 8% ABV. I've made the mistake of having 4 of these in a night. The hangover was far and away worse than what it would have been if I'd consumed the equivalent amount of alcohol in good beer, so be wary of drinking multiple. All in all, this is a serviceable summer beverage.

First off, I want to say I only like this drink because it doesn't taste like beer at all. More like juice or punch.

L:4 This drink looks good. Not good as a beer, but good as a drink. Pink like cranberry juice with a small, quickly receding head.
S:3.75 Again, smells like juice. No alcohol, hops, malt or anything beer-like to be detected. Smells very sweet with some slight bitterness from the cranberry.
T: Tastes exactly like juice or Hawaiian punch. I can't taste anything resembling beer in this beverage. Very slight alcohol taste. Goes down fast!
F:2.75 It's carbonated like a beer but the feel of the juice seems too thick to go with it. Kinda lingers in the mouth, slightly syrupy and sticky.
O:3 It's not a bad drink, but I don't think it's really a beer at all despite the fact it's a malt beverage. I'd drink it if I was in the mood and was offered, but probably wouldn't ever seek it out. Worth trying if you like juice, or wine coolers.
