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.

Tastes like a bud light or natural light mixed with cheap sweet and sour.

Taste Rating in Words: You decide to mix dish soap and KY jelly in a baby pool and play. Not the best of ideas but it's something to pass the time.
