236ml can, another broken case 'find', at my local sad-as-shit liquor store conglomerate outlet.

This, well, 'beer', pours a clear, and generally kid's candy purple colour, with zero appreciable head, and even less (wait, what?) lingering lace anywhere near the glass as things slowly march southwards.

It smells of sugary cranapple punch bowl, and little else - berries, booze, and good times in bikinis! The taste is overly saccharine cran-this and cran-that, but nothing that will keep my teeth from dialing the nearest dental clinic, even at this ungodly hour. Ok, there is a beer under all of this alcohol and lab-approved 'cranberry' essence, but, right - it's just Bud Light, so look that the fuck up if you actually care.

The carbonation is more heady than anything else I've yet seen from this offering, the body a 'solid' medium weight, all fruit juice, all the bloody time. It finishes sweet, sweet, and maybe just a bit less than sweet, as the 16-proof alcohol eventually asserts its provenance.

Yep - add an already barely tangential beer brand name to an effort clearly aimed at non-beer-drinkers, and what have we - oh, right, a cocktail, one which actually has a lot more merit as a quaffable beverage (ya know, the fruit and the ABV), than the base watered-down beer. I'm still astounded at how far AB-InBev has to take things before BA treats them like they do craft ciders.

Pours without any head or lacing at all and looks pretty much like cranberry juice which is at least partially true to its name. Aroma is just light cranberry and the taste is just a fizzy cranberry this seems much more like a wine cooler then a beer.

Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 8.0%. This brew pours out a deep pink color, almost red with a small faint pink head. The head to this brew goes away fast. This is not the color of your average beer, but I like it. The smell of Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita is cranberry, sweetness, and alcohol. Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita kinda smells like Hawaiian punch. Now for the taste of this brew, it is bitter sweet. You pick up on the cranberries in this brew , and lot of sugar. There are no hops in the taste of this brew. You do pick up a hit of grain and malts in the taste of this brew. The mouth feel is bold, sweet, and smooth. Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita , is different from most brews on the market today. There is a lot going on in this brew, it has a real nice balance to. It is hard to pick up on the 8.0% ABV in this brew. Overall I'm giving Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita a 3.5 out of 5. This is a nice smooth and refreshing brew. Anheuser-Busch did a nice job with this one I would vuy this brew again.

From the 125 fl. oz. can marked 14296-BJ87. Sampled on May 12, 2015.

Cranberry red pour.

Cranberry red aroma.

Light mouthfeel.

Cranberry juice taste.

That about covers it. Limited Winter edition and I am drinking it in Spring. But this fruity beer works the same on any day of the year.

Can: sample from the grocery store. Poured a fizzy bright red color beer with light disappearing head. Aroma of sweet cranberry syrup smells nothing like beer. Taste is also dominated by sweet cranberry notes with have more in similar with syrup than actual cranberry. Body is light with spritzy carbonation. Not sure how much beer is really used in this drinks?

Rating this based on the style, a flavored malt beverage...

From can, poured over ice (as suggested) into a goblet

A-pours purplish-red, less than a finger head of white foam, dissipates quickly

S-Faint cranberry and lime, very faint

T-Cranberry juice cocktail, sugar/corn syrup, and some lime and booze, somewhat tart.

M-Carbonation is lighter than other flavored malt beverages in the same genre, slight effervescence, relatively thin

O-Less syrupy sweet than other beverages in this category. Reminded me less of a margarita and more like a cranberry/vodka drink w/ lime. Repeat purchase is highly unlikely despite the ease at which this beverage can be consumed.

25 FL. OZ. can
Served in a goblet (it's the closest I have to a margarita glass)

L - It looks like cranberry juice after the bubbles quickly subside. Same color and everything. I see no carbonation bubbles.

S - It smells like cranberry pop if there is such a thing. Sweet and fruity.

T - The taste has some lime in it to go with the cranberry. It tastes like pop. Syrupy sweet with some carbonation.

M - Thin and soda like

O - I am making Mexican dishes and thought what the hell. It's okay for what it is. It is awfully sweet though.
