If you're trying this beer, you clearly know what you're after. There is a difference between a McDonald's cheeseburger, a sandwich at Red Robin, and that 15 dollar epic burger you had at the local pub downtown that blew your socks off. There is a place for all three, though.

I had about three of these from a cooler at a bonfire party. It was everything I expected - kind of like a picky girl worthy, beer flavored seltzer water with a margarita lime flavor bolted on for distraction. As something nice to hold and drink at a party, it certainly does the trick - but for something more instense, with more flavor that you can actually enjoy, this is water when you're craving cream.

All in all, not bad, but the title says all. A light, big company beer with flavor added.

poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass

A - Pours a light, perfectly transparent straw with a plethora of bubbles rising to the two-finger white head. Head fizzes away to a ring of bubbles almost instantly. Leaves behind a couple of small splotches of lacing.

S - A light amount of toasted grain with a fair amount artificial lime notes.

T - Initially lightly toasted grain with just a hint of lime. In the body the beer heads downhill as more artificial lime notes come through despite hints of hops in the background. The finish is even worse with about 70% of the flavor resembling a cheap lime sucker leaving little room for beer flavor.

M - Highly carbonated and slightly watery. I honestly doubt a firmer body would improve this.

Bud light lime is less of a beer and more of a liquified lime jolly rancher with a touch of beer flavor. It would be refreshing in the summer (in fact I just finished a 5k in 91 degree heat), but the artificial lime flavor is just too much. This was given to me for helping my professor move, and I would not partake in it again unless under similar circumstances.
