I don't see why this beer gets such a low score, in my opinion it is in no way displeasing to the taste buds. I don't see why the amount of foam produced when pouring it into a glass is so important, but, whatever... it is in no way bad in my opinion. Perhaps not the greatest beer in the world, but certainly not bad.

The reviews on this page are appalling. Lime-a-Rita is a fine brew. Don't get me wrong, I drink 3 Monts, Captain's Daughter IPA, Sip of Sunshine, Foundation Epiphany IPA, the best that New England has to offer, but you have to rate this drink not as an ale/beer, but as a delicious summery blast of effervescent LUUUURRVVVE to the tasteBUDs.

I'm giving it top marks. I often grab one when I'm picking up something a little more high end. Don't be a snob. It's awesome gear, this.

This... beer? Sure, since it is on here, lets go with beer - This beer pours a dense lime juice green, the color of sink water after just a few dishes. It smells like a margarita - a truly cheap, sickeningly sweet mid-west tex-mex margarita - but a margarita none the less. The flavor is indescribably bad - super sweet fake lime juice - squeezed right out of one of those plastic limes you buy at the grocery store, plus sugar and more sugar. Really is there any point in describing the flavor further. The mouthfeel is like crappy diet soda. Overall this is one of the worst things I have ever attempted to imbibe.
