great fall beverage and this one taste just like a caramel apple and drinking is just as delicious as eating on. I would drink this one over and over in the fall

I have been winnowing down the bottle backlog here at Chez Woody at the expense of The CANQuest (tm) when I realized that I have never reviewed this gem in a 25-fl. oz. CAN. Mmmm.

From the CAN: "Limited Fall Edition"; "Margarita with a Twist"; "Try It Over Ice!"

I really miss the aural aspect of CANs when I am reviewing bottles, so the Crack! in this case was music to my ears. The size of the CAN was too beaucoup for me to CANduct an inverted Glug, so I used a gentler version to deCANt the beer into my glass. It was very effervescent, but it produced no head whatsoever. It was very fizzy, though. Color was a beautiful Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-plus quality clarity. The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas and Croesus stopped by for a taste and I used the time to smell it. It had a sweet apple juice/apple cider smell, so I give them points for truth in advertising. Mouthfeel was thin, watery, with a fizziness that I found interesting. It was very much alcopop and no wonder they felt CANpelled to label it as "Contains Alcohol" since it would be easy to get carried away with this at 8%. Phew. The taste was unmistakably apple, but it was not as sweet as the nose had led me to expect. We drank a bunch ciders last night, but they were very dry, while this was more semi-dry. The finish was pleasant, semi-dry and not as bad as I might have thought. More damning with faint praise.

236ml single can, at 6% ABV - AB-Inbev must be running out of '-rita'-ready flavours to work with, isn't this more of a '-tini' sort of fruit?

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with one finger of weakly puffy, and mostly just fizzy off-white head, which leaves nothing in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as it rashly blows off.

It smells like well-sweetened apple juice, maybe with a bit of lemon-lime soda mixed in, and very little else. The taste is more of the same - crackling apple juice, artificial sweetener, very subtle fake lime citrus notes, and hard water, where a bit of rice and corn walked through in rubber boots.

The carbonation is pretty tame, after blowing it all right up front, with barely a frothy tickle to be had, the body medium-light in weight, and pretty thin and watery, but smooth enough, I suppose. It finishes sweet, apple-fresh, and a bit limey, with just the slightest twinge of metallic alcohol.

Yep, another alcopop-esque offering where the '<insert_fruit_name> margarita flavour' predominates, which isn't hard to do with the base product, admittedly. Easy to put back, if you like candied apples, or apple-flavoured candies, or are just not into the taste of beer - i.e. the standard Bud Lime customer.

A pretty decent tasting apple-flavored cocktail, but I don't consider it a beer. A couple 8 oz. cans of this is plenty.

Using the Begnel formula, the Alcohol Score is 8 oz. x 8.0% = 64, or 1.3 Bud Lights. For the 25 oz. can, the score is 200, or a whopping 4.0 Bud Lights!
