This stuff is hard to drink. Let's face it, you aren't here to sip a drink and enjoy it, you're here to catch a buzz. That's why you bought an 8% can of malt liquor that tastes like limes. Luckily after the first one it gets a lot easier, but if you have any kind of blood sugar issues just opt for a vodka soda or something.

8oz canned 2/15/18 poured into a margarita glass at fridge temp 8% ABV. The beer pours slightly hazy and looks just like lime juice. No head, no lacing. The aroma is artificial lime and cough drops with a small sidecar of booze. The flavor is the same oddly artificial lime with some tartness and no trace of barley. Mouthfeel is very thin bodied, lightly carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, this is not beer. Not in any way, fashion or otherworldly dimension could this be considered beer. I am only reviewing in my quest to get all the bottom 100 list.

Bought a 25oz can from Marukai $2.69
Hazy, light golden color
Light mouthfeel
High carbonation
Sweet lime taste, basically what you expect from a margarita
Overall it is what it says it is. I don't see how it could be called a beer and what Bud Light has to do with it, but if you drink it over crushed ice then it's like a margarita in a can. Without the ice to dilute it it's too sweet. If you feel like having a margarita then this is for you and that is what my rating is based on, over crushed ice. If you want a beer then this is not for you.

Poured from the tiny can, into a Budweiser pilsner glass. Here we go!

Pale dull muted dark straw colored body. Almost a sort of dark straw, and opaque. Fast amouts of cola fine carbonation through the body, bubbling up on the top like soda. Head creation is non existent, off white, soda popping and instant dissolve right out of the can and crackling noise. Not quite margarita looking, or daiquiri, and dull.

Aroma is not too bad for description. Decent lime like cordial aroma and lots of it. Slight very faint herbal and zest tone, but really does flirt with a big soapy character. There's even a touch of basic rock salt to this as well. Decent and basic, but real lime quality this is not.

Palate is quite sweet. Tastes like a basic machine made slushy type quality margarita. Large boozy character in the aftertaste, and strangely a big alcohol kick that just comes really out of nowhere. This is going straight to my head. Sticky simple syrup, and faint basic lime, with quite a bit of alcohol sweetness towards the end.

This comes off as a pour mans daiquiri, but also unfortunately has too much of a noticeable alcohol kick, that it would be hard to get through more than a few of these casually which is what it should be made for. Good concept, but not liking the execution.

Pours a cloudy lemonade looking color with good carbonation.
Smells like....lime, alot of sugar, and rubbing alcohol, yay me.
This one made my eyes water, immediately hit with rubbing alcohol, limes, and alot of sugar, not in a good way.
Mouthfeel, what mouthfeel is there?
Overall, terrible the lemon is much better.
