Never drink this straight from the can! Pour chilled Lime-A-Rita into an ice-filled glass and enjoy. Makes a quick & easy, not too sweet Marguerita-like drink with a crisp, carbonated finish. Getting difficult to find, similar drinks have recently disappointed: Corona Hard Seltzer Limonada and High Noon Sun Sips Hard Seltzer Lime were the most recent disappointments. If you know of a good Lime-A-Rita substitute, please let me know.

5/7/23 Can from Anthony's fridge.

Look is a sickly light straw color. Little to no bubbly. No head.

Smell is sweet lemonade.

Taste is sticky sweet. More lemonade than anything.

Feels and tastes like a melted freeze pop.

How deceiving for it to be labeled Bud LIGHT. This small 8 oz can had 220 calories and 29 grams of carbs! Sugar bomb.

Pours the color of lemon-line Gatorade, cloudy, briefest of quarter-inch heads that disappears, a bit of carbonation breaking the surface, no lacing. Smells like margarita mix with a whiff of alcohol burn at the back. Taste is thick sugary drink mix and cheap grain alcohol, like something you'd mix together with your friends in high school. Mouthfeel is thick (sweet), but the carbonation is nice.

If you want to puke I your mouth I’d suggest you to drink this. It’s bad.

Smells like a margarita, but doesn't quite have the taste of one, as the lime is somewhat front and center, but battling with other tastes for top spot. Feels slick on the tongue. The booze is mostly hidden here, but you'll get to taste it soon enough. I wouldn't have this again.

Color on the pour seems to be a hazy yellow with no head at all.
Smell is malty lime. Does that make sense? Like lots of lime with some really sweet white bread smells. Not bad but a bit odd.
Taste is kind of a medicinal malty lime. Again a bit odd, right?
Mouth feel is sticky tangy sour and sweet. A lot going on here, right. Lots of bubbles still popping in the back of the mouth and throat after the taste. Kind of fun. Like Pop Rocks.
Overall this is an over priced product. I love that this is a Bud light product! I do not like a lot of the Bud line up starting with the signature Bud let alone the crap Bud Light. Yet this seems to laugh in the face of the Bud Light. Artificial flavor, huge ABV and nowhere light in the mouth feel. I really have to rate this well for kind of kicking a lot of Bud norms to the curb. And I do apologize to regular Bud drinkers. Carry on and Cheers! Drink what makes you happy! Do not let some one else tell you what to drink!

(25 oz can, 19089; 'contains alcohol'; purchased cold... poured into a 28 oz mug)

L: cloudy, jade(?)-yellow liquid; foam on pour, quickly collapses to nothing, persistent activity of bubbles rising

S: smells shooting out as soon as the tab was popped... smells exactly like a blend of margarita mix and 'malt beverage' - enticing, but hardly representative of my beloved malt liquor species

T: margarita mix: sweet, but not sickly so... the background/base is certainly malty, no doubt (and no doubt artificially enhanced with the added sugars), but its definition is obscured... rather flavorful; faint vinyl pool liner note in the back though... is that bitterness or booze struggling to break out?... a bit cloying, eh?

F: it's not all-out syrupy, but there's definitely a concentrate or two slick-sliding though its core... for 8%, the booze is buried rather well... not laborious to swill; fantastically mellow in its alcohol presence, but nonetheless a tad too weighty

O: I'd been avoiding it, but it was inevitable; a gap-filling review if there ever was one... alcopop all the way; interesting, but not all that bad for what it is (I'll never rid of my sweet tooth or my love of both 'malt beverage' and lime)... I may have said it before, but if slop like this is a 'malt liquor' (and the reasons this is on BA are probably understandable, if debatable), then y'all gotta add my old-school jawn, Smirnoff Ice in somewhere - 'fruit and field beer'??, wink wink (1467)
